Rabbi Joseph Krauskopf founded the National Farm School in April 1896 on a 122-acre parcel of land in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Over the next 12 decades, the school grew exponentially, becoming a university in 2015. Today, Delaware Valley University encompasses more than 1,000 acres and has grown into an academically rigorous, interdisciplinary institution that retains its founding focus on experiential learning.
In 2004, in honor of Rabbi Krauskopf, then-President Thomas Leamer established the Founders Society to recognize a special group of dedicated donors who support DelVal through their estate plans. Since that time, more than 130 alumni and friends have joined this unique society of philanthropists to show their appreciation for DelVal and its role in their lives, careers and community. Together, the members of the Founders Society help shape the future of Delaware Valley University.
By establishing a planned gift in support of DelVal or by including the University in your estate plan, you can do the same. As a planned gift donor, you will become a member of the Founders Society, and your generous contribution will ensure the future vitality of the University.
Sir Winston Churchill once said, "We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give." Through a planned gift, you are creating a legacy at DelVal that will transform the lives of students for generations to come.
