You can make a donation to your library

The ITPLD Foundation raises money to fund items that enhance and expand the services and programs of the library.

We are a dedicated group of residents who are passionate about supporting the Indian Trails Library through fundraising and advocacy. We are your neighbors, business owners, parents, grandparents, employees and retirees. We believe a vibrant public library makes a stronger community.


The 2017 tax reform law substantially increased the standard tax deduction limit. The unfortunate result was that charitable gifts dropped significantly as more Americans lost the benefit of itemized deductions.

On March 27, 2020, the CARES Act was signed into law.  For those that itemize, it raised the deductible limitation from up to 100% of AGI. 

For those that will claim the standard deduction (now $12,400 for singles and $24,800 for married couples filing jointly), the CARES Act added a $300 “above-the-line” deduction. This impacts approximately 90% of U.S. taxpayers. You can now deduct up to $300 even if you’re not itemizing on your tax return. Always consult your tax professional concerning your specific situation.

The government has recognized the need to support our charities when we need them the most.  We hope you will too.

Consider making a donation today to support your library! To make a donation in person, please contact  Susan Dennison or call 847.279.2222.
