Cortlandt Van Rensselaer Society
In the mid-nineteenth century, Cortlandt Van Rensselaer led efforts to establish PHS, ensuring that the history of American Presbyterianism is carefully preserved. Today, we honor his vision through this special giving society, which recognizes supporters who provide for the long-term vitality of our programs and services with planned gifts. You can become a member simply by naming PHS a beneficiary in your will or other estate plans and notifying us of your intentions. By becoming a member of the Cortlandt Van Rensselaer Society, you show your commitment not only to PHS, but to the entire American Presbyterian experience—past, present, and future—and you ensure that the stories of our faith go on to inspire future generations.
