Subject: Help with Database model

Question: I work for a public library and need to create a memory/honor database. 
People make donations to the library in memory or honor of an individual. 
The library director uses the money to purchase books for the library and a nameplate 
is put inside the cover of the book. 

I looked at the database models page but didn't find anything that would work for this 
type of database. 

Would you give me a suggestion for a good database model to use for this database. 

The database would store the donor's info, the donor's gift amount, who the gift is for, 
and what books were purchased.
