1616 Latimer Fund – Building on a Legacy Campaign
WAYS TO GIVE
Your support matters!
Members and friends of the Cosmopolitan Club of Philadelphia can show their commitment to the future of the Club with a tax-deductible contribution to 1616 Latimer Fund’s “Building on a Legacy Campaign.” There are many opportunities to show your support.
A three-year pledge to the campaign – this is the method most campaign supporters have chosen to make a significant impact on the largest fundraising campaign in the history of the Cosmopolitan Club.
Join the 1616 Society - For those who wish their gift to have maximum impact, we invite participation in the 1616 Society, which is based on a pledge of at least $16,160 payable over three years.
The generosity and vision of 1616 Society members exemplify our founders’ bold commitment to diverse, cosmopolitan perspectives. This legacy is embodied in the 1616 Latimer building as well as by the stimulating programs that have enriched the women who have gathered there for nearly 100 years.
1616 Society members participate in these benefits:
Acknowledgement on the 1616 Latimer Fund website
Listing on a donor plaque at 1616 Latimer Street
Invitation to an annual 1616 Society program
Annual report on capital projects and fundraising progress
