Become a Supporter

Individuals can make tax-deductible contributions to CHF’s annual fund at any time and in any amount. Our secure online gift form is the fastest and easiest option, though we also welcome checks made payable to CHF.

Making an unrestricted gift is a great way to join the Robert Boyle Society, a group of premier CHF supporters who receive exclusive benefits. You can also join the Irving Langmuir Society, which represents CHF’s philanthropic leaders.

You may also use our online gift form to make a special contribution in honor or in memory of a friend or family member, as well as to indicate if your employer has a matching-gifts program.

Should you prefer to make a gift of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, or mutual funds held for more than one year), you can do so in two ways: your broker can electronically transfer ownership of the securities to CHF, or you may deliver your certificates directly to CHF. For more information about this option, please contact Kathryn Humphreys at 215.873.8266 or
