Make a Planned Gift

Planned gifts help secure the future of the Rosenbach and may provide significant tax savings to the donor. Sometimes these gifts require the help of a tax professional. For more information, please contact Kelsey Bates via email at [email protected] or via phone at 215-732-1600 extension 122.

Make a Matching Gift

Double the impact of your outright gift by applying for a matching gift with your employer. A matching gift is when a person makes a donation to a non-profit organization and their employer donates an equal or greater amount to the same group. A matching gift is a great way for a donor to double their contribution to the Rosenbach. To find out if your employer matches gifts, visit your human resources office. Each company has its own guidelines for employees, spouses, retirees, and widows/widowers. For more information, please contact Kelsey Bates via email at [email protected] or via phone at 215-732-1600 extension 122.
