Giving Opportunities

Personalized Bricks

Now available, the perfect way to honor friends, relatives (or yourself) while supporting the Dyer Library and Saco Museum, by investing in an engraved brick, as durable as the library and museum themselves. These bricks will be placed in the museum sidewalk in the location of your choice. Each brick costs $100. For more details, or to order a brick, download the order form.

Annual Fund

The City of Saco provides us with 60% of the revenue we need to balance our budget. That’s a lot of money, and we’re grateful for it. But the public funding, even when combined with the income that we earn, still leaves us with over $70,000 that we must raise through charitable donations. 

Every single donation will help to support our excellent programs, facilities and collections. Every gift to the Annual Fund will be memorialized on donor boards mounted in the library and in the museum.

Won't you consider making a gift to our annual fund today?

Planned Giving

The Dyer Library and Saco Museum were built upon the generosity of donors who included the organization in their estate plans. From many of the remarkable objects in the museum’s collections, to the buildings in which they and the library collections are housed, the library and museum have benefited from those who have seen fit to extend their giving beyond their lifetimes. If you would like to include the library or museum in your estate plans—with a monetary gift, a stock gift, a residual bequest, or a bequest of art or other objects—please call Leslie Rounds, Executive Director, at (207) 283-3861 ext. 101 or e-mail to let us know of your plans.
