Elizabeth Anderson Society

The Elizabeth Anderson Society honors thoughtful friends of Fox Chase who have established gifts in the form of a bequest, gift annuity, charitable remainder trust, charitable lead trust, life insurance policy, retirement account, or select gifts of real estate.

In 1906, patient Elizabeth Anderson, a friend of a trustee, gave a bequest of $40,000 to support the fledgling hospital that would later become Fox Chase Cancer Center—the equivalent of more than $1 million today. Elizabeth Anderson Society members display this same commitment to advancing cancer science and medicine well beyond their lifetime. Fox Chase is proud to partner with these generous donors.

Once you complete your estate plan, please let us know. We would like to thank you for your generosity by including you in the Elizabeth Anderson Society.

Special benefits for society members include:

  • Subscription to Fox Chase Vision, a semi-annual newsletter
  • Recognition on the Fox Chase donor wall
  • Invitations to select events
