Legacy Circle History

The Legacy Circle was established in honor of the late Victor F. and Edith Weaver. Known most for Victor F. Weaver, Inc., a large New Holland poultry processing plant, these active church members lived out their faith personally and professionally.

Mr. Weaver, a founding and prominent member of the Philhaven Board of Directors, led an ambitious building program to substantially increase the size of our main facility in Mt. Gretna. Additionally, Mrs. Weaver began a ministry of knitting blankets to comfort those receiving inpatient care under our roof.

The Weavers gave generously to Philhaven's annual appeal and funded the pavilion on campus. They also made provisions to leave a legacy beyond their lifetimes, including a major gift to Philhaven from a trust fund. Likewise, the Foundation they created has provided for a major multi-year project to strengthen marriages and families. Victor and Edith Weaver's model of love and generosity continues to be an inspiration today.

How to Give

Not only do you have options for how your gift will be used, you also have options on what to give and how to give. There are gifts that cost you nothing now, gifts that pay you income, and gifts that allow you to decide what happens when.

The Most Popular Planned Gifts

Gifts From Your Will
General Bequest

Through a provision in your written and executed will, you can make a gift in the form of cash, securities, real estate or personal property. There are many types of bequests. Choose the one that best fits your needs and intentions.

Beneficiary Gifts
Retirement Accounts

Naming WellSpan Philhaven as the beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan asset such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, Keogh, profit-sharing pension plan or other donor-advised funds, will accomplish a charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings.

Gifts That Pay You
Charitable Gift Annuity

You can turn underperforming assets (stock, cash in a savings account, CDs, savings bonds, etc.) into a gift to WellSpan Philhaven that provides income to you. Your Charitable Gift Annuity will give you quarterly, fixed payments for life and tax benefits, too.

Giving Smarter Today

Gifts of Stock
Appreciated Stock

When you donate appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares instead of cash, you'll receive charitable deductions at full, fair market value while reducing capital gains impact.

Charitable IRA Rollover
Charitable IRA Rollover

If you're 70 ½ or older, you can make a gift directly from your IRA to WellSpan Philhaven . While there is no charitable deduction for a rollover gift, you do avoid the income tax on the donated portion of your required minimum distribution.

Gifts of Property
Real Estate and Other Valuables

Like stock, the fair market value of gifts of appreciated assets such as real estate, artwork, and other well curated collections, can be deducted from your income tax today and reduce your estate taxes in the future.
