Support the Genealogy Center

There are many ways to support The Genealogy Center of the Allen County Public Library, and all are greatly appreciated.

Donation Options

Make a Monetary Donation

One of the most immediate ways of supporting the work and services of The Genealogy Center is through monetary contributions to the Center’s endowment fund.  Every dollar earned from the endowment fund’s interest directly supports our collections and programs.  Annual gifts and planned gifts are great complements to regular gifts given in appreciation of experiences at the Center.  The library’s Communications and Development office can provide assistance in crafting a planned gift that works best for your personal situation.  Contributions can be mailed, or made through the library’s online donation portal.

Share Your Research

Another immediate way to support the work of The Genealogy Center is to share your research.  We welcome your contributions of papers, books, and disks of data.  In print or in digital formats, your work will not only benefit great numbers of researchers, it will also be preserved for generations to come on our shelves and web pages.  Whether it’s research articles, images of military veterans in your family history, completed books, indices to record groups large and small, or copies of the family record pages in your family Bible, all will find a good home in The Genealogy Center.  Contributions can be mailed or sent electronically directly to The Genealogy Center.

Volunteer Your Time

Our volunteers play a vital role in providing a great experience for our customers

We also welcome your gifts of talent.  There are many volunteer opportunities in The Genealogy Center.  From preservation photocopying and bindery preparation to computer and microtext assistance, all play an important part in providing a top-shelf experience for our customers.
