Your Year-End Donations Matter

December 13, 2019, Gilchrist, Giving

Year-end donations matter because insurance does not cover the full cost of patient care. And because Gilchrist accepts every patient, regardless of ability to pay – charitable contributions are invaluable to our ongoing efforts. In fiscal year 2019, we are proud to have provided over $8,000,000 in uncompensated care to members of our community suffering from serious and life-limiting illnesses.

In addition to the costs of hospice care that are not reimbursed by insurance, many of our complementary programs that bring benefit to our patients and their loved ones are partially or exclusively funded by philanthropic donations. Our counseling and bereavement services, Gilchrist Kids pediatric hospice, Music Therapy, and We Honor Veterans programs are all funded by donors who recognize their positive impact and vital role in the work we do.

Your year-end donations matter. If you are interested in making a tax-deductible gift or fulfilling a pledge before the end of the 2019 tax year, there are several easy and convenient methods.
