Support The Philadelphia Society

Now accepting online donations!

John Lathrop Ryan’s Law:
Never run out of money.
(from Don Lipsett’s Listing of Important Laws)


The Philadelphia Society relies upon the generosity of members and other interested supporters.  Donations to the Society supplement membership dues in meeting our  general operating expenses.

In addition to general operating support, we welcome support for two key program areas:

1) Fellowship Fund:  The Society expends approximately ten percent of our annual budget to provide registration and travel expenses to enable qualified students and young professionals to attend conferences.  Our Fellowship Committee supervises a competitive selection process for fellowship awards, and all fellowship applicants must be nominated by a member of the Society.  While donors may not designate awards to specific individuals, they may establish named fellowships and fellowships with special selection criteria (e.g. law students, journalists).  

2) Meeting Sponsorships:   In order to keep meeting registration costs low, the Society welcomes sponsorship for specific meetings in the form of general support or hosted receptions and dinners.  (Meeting sponsors are recognized during the event.)
