How Can You Help? Contribute to One of Our Worthy Causes Below
Old Pine Conservancy Jobs4GenZ
The goal of this fundraiser is to provide undergraduate students with employment experiences that will help build both their resume … and their income.
It also helps Old Pine Conservancy better answer genealogy questions from family members, do research, develop more educational programs, and create additional biographical profiles of our Patriots.
Students will be hired as independent contractors and paid at a rate of $15 an hour. Employment consists of 35hr/week with flexibility for college schedules.
Support preservation efforts at Old Pine Conservancy. This donation will go into our general fund and be used as preservation needs arise.
In Memory of Ronn Shaffer
Because Ronn was so well known to many of our members and put in over 20,000 hours of volunteer work for Old Pine Conservancy, we continue to accept memorial contributions for him. Our longtime historian, tour guide and friend died in 2019.
Contributions may be made in his memory to Old Pine Conservancy, 412 Pine St., Phila., PA 19106. Or you can use this form to submit a contribution.
Save the Gravestones
After many years of wear and tear and damage caused by pollution, our gravestones need care and restoration. This donation will go toward the preservation of these treasures.
Some 285 men of the Third Church who served in the Revolution are buried here. A number of others who supported the fight for independence are located in our Churchyard, too.
Please Consider Adopting One of These Patriots.
When you do, we will place a 13-star flag on their marker. In turn, you will receive: A handsome, dated Certificate by mail; a Temporary Sign at the gravesite with your name and the name of your patriot; a Photo of the gravesite with that sign; and any Biographical Information we have on that person. Adoptions are good for one year. And you’ll be honoring the memory of a person who supported America’s cause of independence.
