Introducing WVCA’s Champion Circle and Leapfrog Legacy Society

For over 97 years, WVCA has relied on the generous support of our local community to offer life-changing programs to local children in need. To better recognize the impact of our faithful contributors, WVCA is proud to announce our newest initiative the Champion Circle.

Champion Circle members will receive recognition and additional communications through this new program, allowing them to experience the impact their gifts have on our organization. Membership in the Champion Circle is based on cumulative fiscal year giving and more information is provided below. We look forward to celebrating our generous donors, who are an integral part of our WVCA family!

Leapfrog Legacy Society

Additionally, the Champion Circle also includes WVCA’s Planned Giving Program, also known as the Leapfrog Legacy Society. Leapfrog is defined as “To lead or progress, or to go ahead in turn” or even to “bypass”. WVCA helps children progress and move forward regardless of developmental challenges, many times “bypassing” expectations by eliminating or diminishing the effects of developmental delays. Planned gifts are made through various assets, to guarantee long-term impact. Whether through a gift of stock, bequest, life insurance policy, or a trust, your donation will allow us to sustain and strengthen our impact for the children most in need in our community. All donors who have made a planned gift, or who let us know that they will be making a planned gift, will be included as members of this program.  For information on how to include WVCA in your estate plans, please contact  Nina DeiTos Zanon, Executive Director at (570) 714-1246 or nzanon@wvcakids.org.
