Ways to Give

Join Our Legacy Circle

Legacy Circle

By making a planned or deferred gift to VPH, you may become a member of our Legacy Circle. Planned gifts are an investment in the future of VPH, while also providing financial benefits to you and your family, now and in the future.

Joining the Legacy Circle is simple: simply inform us, in writing, that you have designated VPH as a beneficiary in your estate plan. All details of your gift will be held in strict confidence, and your gift will be directed according to your wishes. We encourage planned-gift donors to notify us, so we have the opportunity to recognize and thank you.

All donors who make a planned gift are members of the Legacy Circle and will be recognized in a number of ways, including:

  • An invitation to at least one event each year to acknowledge your support
  • Separate listing in the Annual Report, and other publications

Supporters who have made a planned or deferred gift of $50,000 or more receive additional recognition in the following ways:

  • Permanent recognition on the Legacy Circle donor wall
  • A choice of a naming opportunity, commensurate with the size of the gift

Examples of planned gifts include:

  • Bequest
  • Charitable gift annuity
  • Charitable remainder trust
  • Real estate gift
  • Retirement plan designation
  • Stock gift
  • Life insurance policies

There are many additional possibilities to create a planned gift. The Foundation will refer you to a planning consultant, or contact your financial advisor for the most appropriate plans for your needs and circumstances.
