The extensive work that the Friends of the Wissahickon carries out in the Wissahickon to preserve its environment and structures requires serious funding. In addition to becoming a member, you can support our organization in the following ways.
Annual Fund Drive
Close to the end of the calendar year, the Friends send out their annual appeal for unrestricted funds. In former years, this appeal has raised over $20,000. The funds are vital for the support of the many projects undertaken to benefit the Wissahickon.
Tributes, Memorials, and Honorarium Gifts
FOW is always eager to recognize individuals or groups with tribute, memorial, or honorarium gifts of any size. Contributors to these gifts will receive personal thank-you letters and complimentary membership in our organization.
United Way Donations
FOW can receive membership/donations through the United Way. Our United Way number is 9882. If this is the most convenient way for you to give, please do so.
Matching Gifts to FOW
The impact of your giving to Friends of the Wissahickon may be doubled or possibly tripled!
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match most charitable contributions made by their employees. Some companies also match gifts made by spouses, children, and retirees. All proceeds from the Matching Gifts program benefit the Wissahickon Valley Park.
