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.

What Residents Say

"In my two 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 residents Jack & Bernice Segal
