Ways to Give
Below are some of the most common ways you can support the VNA, often while realizing tax benefits. No matter how – or how much – you give, your generosity will benefit all our patients in need, regardless of their financial resources.
Annual gifts strengthen the VNA and we rely on donor generosity so that we can provide healthcare to the most vulnerable and less fortunate in our community. We continue to count on support from our community to provide this care and your generosity helps ensure that the VNA can continue to serve all who turn to us. We hope you will consider making the gift that touches close to home. Learn more.
A planned gift is simply a gift that is planned ahead of time and can range from a simple bequest to a complex charitable trust. Charitable gift planning can provide many personal and financial benefits. Including the VNA in your plans is a wonderful way to help ensure that our communities continue to receive necessary home health, hospice care, and wellness programs regardless of their ability to pay.

One of the most meaningful ways to acknowledge the passing of a loved one is by offering a gift as a tribute to a life lived. Memorial gifts become part of our Memorial Fund, which supports charity care. Many times, families include a request for memorial gifts as part of the newspaper obituary. Often, individuals choose to make gifts in memory of their loved ones on birthdays or to mark the anniversary of their passing. A listing of the donors’ names and addresses (but not the gift amount) is provided to the family of the deceased. Learn more.
Gifts made in honor of a special occasion (such as a birthday, wedding or anniversary) are a thoughtful way to recognize the achievement while bringing comfort and care to the needy of our community. We are pleased to assist you in making the happy event more meaningful by notifying the honoree of your thoughtful act.
Many employers will match your charitable donation, thereby doubling (or more) your thoughtful gift. Matching gift forms, available through your company’s human resources office, provide the necessary details and instructions.
A gift of stock which has appreciated in value over time, can be a wonderful way to give to the VNA & Hospice Foundation, while also allowing you to minimize your taxes. Making a thoughtful gift of an asset such as real estate, stocks or bonds, life insurance, or IRA’s could prove extremely beneficial to you as well as provide generous support to the recipient charity.
The most popular and well understood type of planned gift, a bequest, is your wish, as stipulated in your will, to designate a gift to the VNA & Hospice Foundation, Inc. Your bequest may be made for a specific amount of money, for a percentage of your assets, or a percentage of your residual estate (the amount left after all your specific bequest assignments have been fulfilled). A bequest can also be a gift of other types of assets such as real estate or stock. By making a bequest, you help ensure the future of the VNA, by choosing to leave a lasting legacy of care and hope.
