Already steadfast supporters of Habitat Philadelphia, the Davises took their commitment a step further when re-working their will, a process that Habitat helped them with. “We had a pretty good feel for organizations that we wanted to support,” said Peter. “The program that Kathryn talked about was direct and simple to get involved with. It took very little effort to document what we were going to do. It was easy and friendly.”
“It felt comfortable,” added Kathy.
Ahead of making such a transformational gift, Peter and Kathy considered many factors, and ultimately decided that Habitat Philadelphia could create meaningful change in the city with their support.
“You want to make sure that the money is going to be used by people who are committed to what they are doing but also have vision for where the organization is going to go,” said Peter. “You want to help support that vision and that growth. Our participation in some of the functions over the last years has given us the insight and comfort that they money is going to go in the right direction and will help build for the life of the organization.”
The Wilt Street Legacy Society will help build the foundation for many Philadelphia families, and Peter and Kathy hope it is just the beginning. Extending their generosity even further, they matched the next ten signed letters of intent, up to $25,000 each, to Habitat Philadelphia through the Wilt Street Legacy Society, bringing their total gift to $1,250,000.
“We would hope that this would inspire others to give,” said Peter. “This program constitutes a wonderful effort by Habitat Philadelphia and we really want it to be successful and thrive.“
