Ways to Give

Your financial gift matters and can make a difference in the lives of others.

Your tax-deductible gifts help to provide community education, financial, and emotional relief for those facing life-limiting illness.

Contributions will help families who, by your lending hand, can receive the hospice care they need, as well as financial support that contributes to their well-being, whether they are under-insured or do not have insurance.

Memorial & Tribute Gifts

A truly meaningful way to honor a loved one who has passed is to make a donation to the Residential Hospice Foundation in their memory. When you make your donation, simply tell us who to notify and their mailing address. We’ll notify them of the gift made in honor of their loved while keeping the amount confidential.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts can double or triple your contribution and help even more!
Ask your employer whether the organization you work for participates in a matching gift program. Contact your human resources office or donate online through your company’s website.

Residential Hospice Foundation


What is Hospice?

Hospice is a philosophy of care that accepts death as a natural part of life. When death is inevitable, hospice seeks neither to hasten nor postpone it. Hospice provides a community-centered, patient and family focused, cost-effective way of humanely caring for terminally ill persons. Hospice provides care that establishes pain control and symptom control as appropriate clinical goals and understands that psychological and spiritual pain is as significant as physical pain.

Why Do Some People Need Financial Help?

Many people have little or no insurance coverage for hospice care and other resources. The Residential Hospice Foundation can provide much-needed assistance to help ensure comfort and peace of mind at the end of life.

What’s the Best Way to Donate?

There are many ways to donate and make a great difference for those with life-limiting illnesses and their families, whether you’re an individual, business, or community organization. A gift in any amount will help.

Are Donations Tax Deductible?
