Types of Giving
You can use almost any kind of asset to establish a fund at The Philadelphia Foundation, including cash, publicly traded securities, closely held stock, interests in limited partnerships and – with approval by the Board of Managers – real estate and tangible personal property.
The Philadelphia Foundation also offers a full range of planned giving vehicles, including Charitable Gift Annuities, Charitable Lead Trusts, and Charitable Remainder Trusts. In addition, the Foundation is available to provide assistance and suggested language for legacy gifts such as bequests, gifts of retirement plan assets and gifts of life insurance.
Donors who make planned or legacy gifts to create funds, add to funds or to support the work of The Philadelphia Foundation are invited to join the Foundation’s Repplier Society. As a member, you will be recognized in the Foundation’s Annual Report and other publications and be invited to special events. The Foundation will, of course, honor your request for anonymity if so desired.
We encourage you to use the full "menu" of giving vehicles to realize your philanthropic goals. We can help you establish and make additions to your fund using both current and deferred gifts. If you are interesting in doing fundraising for your fund, please visit our Fundraising Policy page.
Giving through The Philadelphia Foundation allows you to create a philanthropic legacy to support the issues and causes you care about long into the future. In the process, you can realize financial, tax and estate-planning benefits.
