Tilton Library has always depended on bequests and donations. In fact, the Library owes its existence to the bequests of Chauncey B. Tilton and Esther Dickinson, which provided for a free public library in Deerfield.
The Tilton Fund, Inc., is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible. There are different ways to contribute financially to the well-being of the Library.
Help Tilton Library & future generations.

BIULDING PROJECT CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

Please keep in mind that a capital campaign donation is a gift toward this building project only. It is different from a donation to the Friends which supports library programs or the Tilton Fund Annual Appeal which supports the annual operating budget.

If mailing a check, please be sure to make the check out to The Tilton Fund, Inc., with a note that it is for the capital campaign. Thank you!
