Planned Giving

The Sycamore Farm Legacy Society

The Sycamore Farm Legacy Society was founded in 2013 to recognize and honor a distinguished group of individuals who are dedicated to helping The Philadelphia School secure its future by including TPS in their estate plans through bequests, life insurance gifts or designations, or retirement plan beneficiary designations. 

The name of the society honors the roots of our first country classroom – Sycamore Farm, which was generously provided for our use by the Donner family.  The Donners and other early school leaders gave thoughtful and caring support in the creation of the school’s mission.  Help us to sustain this mission by helping to ensure the financial viability of The Philadelphia School far into the future. 

Planned giving, which typically takes place as part of estate planning, is an effective option for caring people at all income levels. Planned gifts also offer personal, financial and tax benefits to you and your family.

Ways of Giving

We invite you to become a member of The Sycamore Farm Society.  If you have already made a planned gift to The Philadelphia School, though one of the vehicles above, or through another vehicle, please let us know so we can honor your gift and include you in the Legacy Society.

We encourage you to consult with your financial or legal advisors to fully explore the legal, financial, tax, and personal implications of planned giving.
