In 1994, when the Trust was looking for a means to enable donors to make lasting contributions to the Trust, the Lifetime Membership Program was launched.
A $10,000 level of giving grants the donor membership in the Scholarshipâ€™s Lifetime Club. The funds generated from the Program are deposited in a special permanent endowment, from which only the income generated will be used for scholarships. The establishment of this endowment provides the Scholarship with an important source of permanent funding.
More than 400 Philadelphia golf leaders have become Lifetime members, indicating their strong support of the educational goals of our Platt Scholars. All of our Lifetime contributors are listed in every edition of our Year In Review.
Contributions may be made in one initial investment (cash or securities) or over a four-year period with installments of $2,500 per year.
