Ways to Give

PPH conducts appeals twice a year to current donors, residents, and resident families.  Some of our friends can give only a one-time heartfelt donation.  Many of our donors choose to make regular (monthly/annual) donations.  Every dollar donated is greatly appreciated.

While PPH gratefully accepts the transfer of stock or bonds and donated real estate, the most common way to give is by cash or check.  This type of outright donation provides immediate flexibility for PPH and generates a charitable income tax deduction for the donor in the year of the gift. Please make checks payable to “The Philadelphia Protestant Home.”  PPH also accepts one-time and monthly recurring donations using our secure donation form here.

Ways to Give

The Bergdoll Society
The Bergdoll Society, established in 2005, recognizes donors who have given $500 or more in the previous calendar year as well as loyal donors who have contributed for the past ten or more consecutive years. The Society is named for Elizabeth Bergdoll whose bequest of $15,000 in 1898 was used to purchase land that today is our beautiful, expansive senior living community!

For more information on ways to give to PPH, please call our Fund Development department at 215-697-8508, email, or download a copy of our Gracious Giving Brochure.

PPH’s federal tax identification number is 23-1396804.

What Residents Say

"In my nine years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.…especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of resident Bernice Segal
