How to Give
We Appreciate Your Gifts
PPh conducts appeals twice a year to current donors, residents, and resident family. Some of our friends are able to give only a one-time heartfelt donation. Many of our donors choose to make regular (monthly/annual) donations commensurate with their giving ability. 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 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 donations by way of credit card using our secure donation form here.
The Bergdoll League
The Bergdoll League, established in 2005, recognizes individuals who have given $500 or more in the previous calendar year or have given to PPh for 10 or more consecutive years from the previous calendar year. The League is named for Elizabeth Bergdoll whose gift through her will of $15,000 in 1898 was used to purchase land for our home.
PPh’s federal tax identification number is 23-1396804.
