Friends of the Society

Now introducing our Lifetime Circle of Friends! If you don’t have the time to donate every year, you can now donate one time to be a friend for life! To become a Lifetime Friend, we offer two levels of giving:

  • One-time tax-deductible donation of $2,000 for individuals under the age of 65 years.
  • One-time tax deductible donation of $1,000 for individuals ages 65 and older OR retired.

And of course you can always donate more if you desire. If you cannot become a Lifetime Friend at this time, you can still join our annual Circle of Friends with a donation of $100 or more.

The PA History Society is able to undertake the amazing projects that we do through the help of donations from our gracious patrons. Through these generous, tax-deductible gifts, we have been able to:

Create our educational resources for PA students, such as our Toolkits for PA programs and books

Update our website to be more dynamic and easy to use

Worked with the National Library of Medicine to produce the traveling banner and online exhibits, PAs: Collaboration and Care

The ability to continue to add to our wonderful Oral History Interview collection

Maintaining the archives, the ability to help researchers in PA history, and to continue to grow our collections

And of course, our marvelous PA Veterans Garden, located in Durham, NC!

To see more of the amazing projects that the Society has undertaken, please look at our Project Timeline!

Help us continue doing our important work by spreading the word of the rich history of PAs and the contributions to society that they make by becoming a Friend of the Society with a donation of $100 or more (tax-deductible)!
