The Legacy of Learning: Member Profile

Photo headshot of AACPL employee, Donny DennyThe Foundation’s Legacy of Learning Society recognizes donors who remember the Anne Arundel County Public Library Foundation in their will. Leaving a bequest in a will is one of the most effective, and affordable, ways a donor can support a non-profit organization close to their heart.
Donna Denny was among the very first members of The Legacy of Learning Society. As Executive Assistant to AACPL’s CEO, Skip Auld, Donna understands the important role private support plays in enhancing the library’s ability to serve our community.
“I was in the room when the AACPL Foundation was born,” Donna relates. “Since then, I’ve been very proud to watch it grow and accomplish what it was created to do. The Foundation continues to expand its potential due to the hard work and dedication of many people. Philanthropy is a labor of love, and it gives me great pleasure to know I can continue to benefit the Foundation when my work is done.”
Most donors are able to make a larger gift in their wills than they can during their lifetimes. There can also be significant tax benefits to making a bequest to a non-profit such as the Anne Arundel County Public Library Foundation. Members of The Legacy of Learning Society are feted annually at a special dinner and receive other benefits.
