Planned Giving

For over two hundred years, the walls that witnessed the birth of a nation have stood on Independence Square protected and supported by the citizens of this country for future generations.  Will you join the ranks and be a part of the lasting legacy of the preservation, restoration and education of this magnificent park?


Please consider joining the extraordinary individuals who have gone before and left a donation to support our park.  You can help the Independence Historical Trust protect our past with a direct gift or a gift through your estate.


How to Give:

  • Bequeath or give directly a specific amount or specific assets, such as securities or tangible personal property to the Independence Historical Trust
  • Direct in your will that the Independence Historical Trust receive a percentage or fixed amount of your remaining estate assets after the payment of any specific bequests and final, estate-related expenses.

Think of it as your gift to the future, a legacy with a permanent impact. Your gift, regardless of size will be both welcomed and appreciated.  Once you have decided to support the Independence Historical Trust into the future, please let us know so that we may recognize your gift.  To learn more about planned giving, please contact the Friends office at 215-861-4971.
