donor Joanna Bassert for Manor College in PhiladelphiaA Bright Future

We’re so grateful for friends who have generously included Manor College in their estate plans. Their foresight allows us to continue to support our mission to transform our students through a Basilian environment that enables students to develop as individuals, understand ethical principles and global vision, develop a sense of inquiry, and serve society effectively and compassionately now and far into the future.

Dr. Joanna Bassert, Veterinary Technology Program

“As a long-time faculty member here at Manor, it’s important to me that I contribute to the financial well-being of our institution.  Giving through our donor advised fund has made the process even easier, since we don’t have to remember to make our regular contributions or keep track of the paperwork for taxes.”
