Legacy Gifts to Our Alma Mater
Did you know that you can designate the Alumnae Association in your will or trust? Did you know that you can donate life insurance contracts, stocks, certain bonds, and/or mutual funds? These gifts may provide needed tax benefits for you, the donor, and help our Association promote and sustain its mission for many years to come. As we age, we all talk about leaving a legacy. This is your opportunity to do so for generations of women to come, as well as to help the school and the students as they battle the financial hardships they may be facing. If interested in helping or donating, please contact Joy Pollock at email@example.com.
Dear Fellow Alumnae-
As you may be aware, the School District of Philadelphia continues to experience serious financial challenges which have created an untenable situation for all the schools in the District.
Along with all other schools, the Girls High 2014 – 2015 budget was extremely affected. Along with the library, which has not been staffed for over 2 years, this year the music department has been impacted and all preschool activities have been cut.
We, the alumnae, who have all profited from the education we received at Girls' High, can help to provide today's students the same opportunities we received. We will review this important topic at the 2015 Alumnae Business Meeting and Luncheon being held April 18th, and encourage your attendance.
The Alumnae board has worked to increase the support of the school but, frankly, much more is needed. We will need to move to an aggressive, major campaign funding model if we are to provide the school the financial support needed and that is being provided by other public school alumni associations.
In the past few years, you have been extremely generous when the Alumnae Association has requested your support. In this time of great need, please give as generously as you are able. Simply click on the following link to be able to donate here on our web site (see above), or send your check made out to the Alumnae Association of the Philadelphia High School for Girls to:
The Alumnae Association

Thank you, in advance, for any help you are able to give.
