Chester County Community Foundation to host Chair’s Choice

PAOLI — The Chester County Community Foundation is honoring outgoing board Chair Michael DeHaven, a certified public accountant, and welcoming incoming Chair Winifred Moran Sebastian, a lawyer, at Chair’s Choice on Sunday, June 5. Guests are invited to Waynesborough Country Club to enjoy food, wine and beer, while also celebrating Community Foundation board leadership. Additional outgoing board members and incoming board members will be recognized and celebrated at the event.

Michael DeHaven is a shareholder with Rainer & Co., an accounting firm that has a longstanding reputation for outstanding professional and community service. Throughout his term as board chair, he used his personal and professional connections to strengthen and grow legacy philanthropy in Chester County, earning him a Door Opener Award in 2017, years before he became Chair.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, DeHaven guided the foundation’s actions and responses, ensuring charitable giving grew in Chester County during a challenging time. DeHaven is chair emeritus of the Chester County Chamber of Business & Industry and he serves on the boards of the Chester County Economic Development Council, Mental Health Partnerships and the Central and Western Chester County Industrial Development Authority.

Philanthropy is a family effort for the DeHavens. His wife, Kim, is a board member for Home of the Sparrow and their three sons are all actively involved with community service. The DeHavens make generous grants to local charitable causes through their fund, the DeHaven Family Charitable Fund, and Mike and Kim are members of the Ben Franklin Legacy Society, cementing their desire to make a lasting impact in Chester County.

The Chester County Community Foundation is excited to welcome Sebastian as the incoming board chair. The Community Foundation say it is confident that her expansive experience, strong leadership and generous heart will lend greatly to her success as Board Chair.

Sebastian practices business, municipal and zoning, real estate, trusts and estates, wills, and probates law at Lamb McErlane PC in Oxford. She is very active in the community.

Sebastian is a fund advisor for the Randy L. & Winifred Moran Sebastian Scholarship Fund. She supports the Lighthouse Youth Ministries and the Oxford Area Neighborhood Services Center and has served as a board member for the Chester County Red Cross and the YMCA of Greater Brandywine. Winnie is also involved with the Fund for Women at the Delaware Community Foundation, SOAR and the YMCA Delaware.
