The Swedish Colonial Society is proud to support historic preservation at Gloria Dei (Old Swedes’) Church

by Feb 25, 2015News & Events

We have had a long relationship with Gloria Dei (Old Swedes’) Church. Gloria Dei has created a 501c3 for historic preservation of the church and churchyard. (

The new foundation has created the “100 Founding Members” …  an opportunity for those who wish to support mission of The Historic Gloria Dei Preservation Corporation.

The 100 Founding Lifetime Member program will be offered to the first 100 individuals or organizations who donate $1,000 or pledge $1,000, to be paid quarterly or monthly over 12 consecutive months.

The Swedish Colonial Society, as well as several of our Board Members, has become a 100 Founding Member! We invite you to join us in this mission. Click here to learn more:
