Evergreen Circle of Friends

The Evergreen Circle of Friends is a special tribute to those who indicate in writing that their estate plan includes provisions to help support Hospice & Community Care. It gives Hospice & Community Care an opportunity to say thank you and give special recognition to people who provide compassionate and wonderful gifts.

Planned giving — a gift from the heart

When you provide for Hospice & Community Care in your estate plan, you will be leaving a legacy that is more than monetary — it’s a legacy of providing quality hospice care for people in your community. Your estate may also benefit from tax savings, whether your gift is in the form of a bequest, charitable remainder trust, life insurance policy or charitable gift annuity.

How your gift helps others…

Hospice & Community Care provides a special combination of care and compassion for patients (and their families, friends and caregivers) who are coping with any serious illness. Hospice professionals offer medical, emotional and spiritual support ensuring optimal comfort, dignity and quality of life. Bereavement support is available for adults, teens and children for 16 months following the loss of a loved one. Many of our services are able to be provided only through the generous community support received from compassionate friends like you.

Talk with your trusted advisor.

We encourage you to speak with your attorney, accountant or estate planning advisor about ways to meet your individual goals while helping to preserve and enhance hospice and end-of-life care for all people in need of our care..
