A Gift from the Heart

Rear view of man and woman holding hands of each other while walking outdoors.Daniel was a young man in the Navy when he met a bright first-grade teacher who would change his life—his future wife Janice. The couple shared many happy memories and years of marriage before Daniel became ill. He required a great deal of medical care and support from their community. Janice and Daniel eventually made the decision to start Daniel on hospice services.

They knew that deciding what happened with their hard-earned assets had to be a team effort. With no children, Daniel’s number one priority was that Janice be taken care of for the remainder of her life. When the couple met with their estate attorney, they learned that they could also continue to support the people and organizations that they cared deeply about by naming them to receive a gift from their estate upon Janice's passing. One of those beneficiaries was HopeHealth. Janice left specific instructions that the funds were to be used for the benefit of hospice patients who need financial assistance to access care.

Thanks to Daniel and Janice, two caring people who thought about the lasting impact they could have on others, many patients and families will benefit.

Other Ways to Leave a Legacy for HopeHealth Patients

Support HopeHealth through an IRA:

  • Naming HopeHealth as a beneficiary of your IRA is a simple and easy way to make a charitable gift with your retirement funds when you can no longer utilize them; this avoids the high tax rate that family members could incur.

Support HopeHealth through a life insurance policy:

  • Naming HopeHealth as a beneficiary or owner of a paid-up life insurance policy is another visionary way to show your appreciation through a gift to your favorite charity.

Both options allow you to transfer wealth outside of your estate and avoid probate, while freeing up other assets for your family.
