Other ways to give.

There are as many ways to help as there are reasons to give. While many give a gift in memory of a loved one, there are many other ways to support Hosparus. Make a gift to recognize the compassionate work of a Hosparus team member. Remember Hosparus in your will or estate plan. Make an annual pledge. Give your time by becoming a Hosparus volunteer. Or view the other ways to give below to find what could be right for you.

Shining Star

It’s important to recognize the people who make moments special. Honor a caregiver or a team of caregivers who’ve touched your life.
Our Shining Star program was created so staff could receive the recognition they deserve. If you’d like to recognize a staff member, our Shining Star program also allows you to make a financial contribution to help other families deal with end-of-life care. The recipient will receive a special Shining Star lapel pin. To recognize a staff member, fill out a Shining Star form or contact us at 502-719-4117.

Imagine the difference you can make by simply checking to see if your employer participates in matching gifts!

Fundraiser Planning

Hosparus Health has a set of guidelines below that we ask all individuals and organizations to follow when fundraising on our behalf.
Please review the guidelines by clicking the link below. For questions, or to start planning, contact Kelsi Dempster, 502-719-4211.

Qualified Charitable Distribution

Donors can make charitable gifts from their IRA. The IRA Charitable Rollover allows individuals age 70½ and older to donate up to $100,000 from their IRAs to Hosparus Health tax-free each year. Donors do not receive an income tax charitable deduction. However, this gift allows donors to transfer money directly from their IRAs to Hosparus without having to recognize the transferred funds as taxable income. Many loyal donors find this way of giving the most tax advantaged method of making charitable gifts due to recent income tax law changes that increased the standard deduction threshold.  Donors interested in utilizing the tax-wise way of giving should contact Lisa Sanford, 270-304-2329, for specific information on how to make this type of gift work for them.
