Gifts of Cash
Cash gifts are always appreciated. These gifts can be made by check or credit card.
Gifts of Your Hands (In-Kind Gifts)
Philhaven’s clients have been blessed with hand-made gifts of small blankets, prayer shawls and quilts. These and other in-kind gifts can be wonderful ways to support Philhaven’s mission. Please check with our Development Office to see how an idea you have for a gift can be most useful and appropriate.
Gifts of Securities
Your gift of stocks, bonds, or other publicly traded securities entitles you to a charitable deduction equal to the full fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift, provided you have owned the securities for more than one year. In addition, you do not incur capital gains tax on the transfer of such securities to Philhaven. Please contact the Development Office for details on such transfers.
Gifts of Real Estate
When an individual or couple sells a piece of real estate (other than their personal residence) that they have owned for many years, they are often faced with significant capital gains on which to pay taxes. It can sometimes be helpful to make a charitable gift of a fractional undivided interest in the property prior to its sale. For more information, contact the Development Office. We will be happy to help!
Some companies offer to match gifts you make to a charitable organization. By completing your company’s application and informing Philhaven of this match, you can significantly increase, and sometimes double or triple, your gift. Inform the Development Office about your company match!

Philhaven’s Legacy Circle
We invite you to join Philhaven’s Legacy Circle , a group of Philhaven supporters who demonstrate a special commitment to the future of our mission by leaving a legacy through a deferred gift plan such as a Last Will and Testament, a gift annuity, a charitable trust or a life insurance policy.
Our Endowment Partners
Deferred gift plans help to build financial sustainability through growing the Philhaven Endowment.
Philhaven works closely with several organizations to offer some of the charitable gift plans discussed here. These include the Mennonite Foundation , The Foundation for Enhancing Communities and the Lancaster County Community Foundation . They provide excellent resources to us in the area of gift planning and each manages an Endowment Fund for Philhaven. We are also happy to work together with your financial advisors to ensure that your wishes and interests are met.
