The Lewis Society

The Lewis Society honors those who choose to support CHOP through a planned gift such as a will, trust, life insurance policy, retirement plan or annuity.

The Lewis Society is named for Dr. Francis West Lewis, who co-founded CHOP after visiting a London hospital devoted to sick children, then enlisted his family in supporting the new hospital through transformational bequests. Today, planned gifts continue the Lewis family tradition of giving, and remain a vital source of funding for the Hospital.

Lewis Society membership includes the following benefits:

  • Recognition on our electronic donor wall and in our annual philanthropy report
