The Robert Ralston Society 


Robert Ralston was a pioneer in the ministry of Bible distribution when he helped found the Pennsylvania Bible Society in 1808.  It is in his memory that the Robert Ralston Society was established to encourage bequest gifts to help perpetuate the legacy he began two centuries ago.





    Your bequest will install you as an active member of the Robert Ralston Society, whose members are providing a legacy for Bible distribution for generations to come. 
    Mainly through the income from bequests to the Endowment fund has the Society been able to carry out its mission of Scripture distribution.  A bequest to PBS will keep your generosity alive and active in the years to come by assuring a steady flow of Scripture where it is most needed.  A bequest by will is a simple matter, one which your lawyer can easily set up.
