You Make a Difference
Donations provide significant support for Hospice services and enable us to enhance the quality of life for each patient and to support the families during bereavement. Everyone will or has been affected by death or grief in his or her lifetime. Your gift, regardless of size, will make a difference in someone's life and in the quality of care available to those that Hospice of the Plains serves. All gifts will be acknowledged with a Thank you and tax deductible receipt.
Those who have passed away remain forever in our hearts. As a way to remember those so dear, we invite you to honor them with a Hospice of the Plains memorial donation. The honoree's family will also receive a letter notifying them of your donation in memory of their loved one.
Many Hospice friends who are unable to make donations during their lifetime may make major contributions through a thoughtful, well-planned bequest.
There are many ways to make a donation, which is 100% tax deductible. Cash, check, stock, securities, real estate, life insurance policy or personal property may all be given as a gift that could offer many advantages to the one donating. Visit with your accountant, financial planner or attorney to determine the planned giving opportunity which will benefit you the most.
