• Annual Appeal
    The annual appeal is a campaign conducted each year to raise money for the Preservation Alliance’s programs and activities to save Philadelphia’s heritage resources. The funds are targeted for use where funds from grants and other sources are not available. It is particularly important for advocacy programming, one of the most important components of the Alliance’s agenda.

Places to Save

The purpose of the listing is to elevate the discussion and ramp up local action toward saving these valuable assets. An up-to-date listing is published in each edition of Extant Magazine.

Planned Giving, Wills, and Estate Planning

Many donors choose to leave a special gift to their favorite charitable organizations in their will. Since Federal Estate Taxes can easily take between 37% to 55% of a person’s estate at the time of their passing, it definitely pays to plan with your attorney and financial advisers. Please consider making a charitable bequest in your will to benefit the Preservation Alliance. We can be named as a beneficiary in your will in a number of simple ways. Please call us at 215-546-1146  or email to discuss your bequest gift.
