Annual Fund

A gift of general support allows the Board of Managers to direct your gift where the foundation needs it most. You can make a one-time gift, or you can pledge to make a larger gift by spreading the payments over several months or a year. Contact us for questions or assistance in planning a meaningful gift.

Honorary Gifts

For 320 years, Old Swedes Church has been and is a popular site for weddings and baptisms. A gift to the Old Swedes Foundation in the name of a special family member or friend assists with preserving this historic site. It is a gift that truly keeps on giving! All recipients of honorary gifts will receive a certificate in honor of their special celebration.
