Donate to Hospice
Gifts to Hospice & Community Care are used within our six-county service area supporting the needs of local families. As a local, nonprofit, community-based organization, we are committed to honoring the wishes of donors who want to make a difference in their community.
A memorial gift is a meaningful way to honor the legacy of a loved one, and to help others who can benefit from the services of Hospice & Community Care. Memorial contributions may be made in any amount and directed according to your or a family’s wishes. A letter will be sent to the family, notifying them of your gift.

Our Sustainer Circle is a special group of monthly donors – dedicated supporters who make regular monthly gifts and help make a lasting impact on the lives of patients and families in our communities. If you are interested in making a monthly donation, your donation can be automatically drafted on the 1st or 15th of each month.
Gifts in Honor
A gift made to honor of a loved one is a great way to surprise them on their birthday, wedding day, or other occasion. Perfect for the person who has everything, honorariums serve a dual purpose: supporting a worthy cause while demonstrating the depth of your feelings. Gifts are acknowledged with personal correspondence to both the donor and the individual honored.
Comfort & Care Campaign
This year, Hospice & Community Care celebrates ten years of service at the Wayne T. Patrick House and thirty-three years as an organization. We have served thousands of patients and their families, continuing to offer the highest quality of care and comfort.
We continue to work tirelessly to care for our buildings, maintaining the same beauty and comfort as when we first opened the doors to this campus ten years ago. But, as with all things, time begins to take its toll. Hospice & Community Care is facing significant capital needs on our campus in the upcoming year including HVAC repairs, building maintenance, and technology needs.
Will you join us in continuing to provide a place of comfort and care to our community by making a gift that will ensure everyone that needs hospice care in our community has access to the very best at the end of life?

Tour of Duty Campaign
Through the Tour of Duty Brick Campaign, each Veteran patient served by Hospice & Community Care will be gifted a brick to be placed in the Veteran Garden (beginning July 2018). Sponsorships and donations will also fund veteran programs in our organization, including recognizing our Veteran patients with service flags, certificates, and, if desired, a pinning ceremony performed by a Veteran volunteer recognizing their military service.

“Words cannot express my gratitude to your organization for the care we received during my mother’s (Gladys Nunn) recent illness and death. Frankie, Kristie, Danette have been absolutely wonderful. Their warmth, compassion, knowledge, and professionalism far exceeded what was necessary or expected, yet they worked tirelessly to make sure that we had everything we needed. They were not only concerned about Mother, but also about me. These ladies kept me informed about what was happening and what to expect. They answered my questions and addressed my concerns. Lee’s visits meant much to me as well. His soft-spoken prayers and our conversations brought me a sense of inner peace and even a few smiles.”
– Patricia Lowe
