You are cordially invited to join the Haven Hospice Leadership Society. The purpose of this select society is to recognize those who have made a personal gift or pledge to promote the excellent care Haven Hospice has provided to our community since 1979.

Thanks to donors like you, Haven is able to provide transformational support for all who seek comfort, dignity and peace of mind.

In addition to the tax deducible benefits allowed by your gift, Leadership Society members will be recognized at donor appreciation events and at other gatherings.

Donations of $10,000 or more will be recognized on the lobby recognition displays in care centers.

Leadership Society membership is extended to those who accept the opportunity to support the Haven Hospice Foundation through a gift or pledge of $120 a year or more over a period of five years.

  • Haven Hospice care (in the home, in our five inpatient care centers, or in facilities)
  • Community education and professional training (including the outreach hospice and palliative fellowship program that trains physicians to meet the growing and underserved need for palliative care)

Established endowments to benefit specific Haven programs include:

  • Palliative care (First Federal Foundation in Columbia County, Dan & Katie Martinez in Putnam County)
  • Grief support services for adults and children, including Camp Safe Haven (Leon Buckles in memory of his wife Reda in Putnam County)
  • We Honor Heroes (The Thomas A. Plein Foundation)
  • To make a profound difference in the lives of Haven Hospice patients and families — perhaps your own family, friends and neighbors — by supporting
    unfunded programs including bereavement, veteran services, and unreimbused patient care.
  •  To join with other community neighbors in demonstrating your commitment to the humanitarian mission of Haven Hospice Foundation.
  •  To sustain a “living endowment” fulfilling Haven’s commitment to the community’s most vulnerable and to honor our founders’ vision that no one be turned away from hospice care due to an inability to pay.

Charitable support has been and always will be vital to assuring that our community continues to have access to the very best care available: Haven Hospice care.

Haven has numerous lasting ways in which you can remember someone special. In your giving, please consider honoring a loved one with a leaf on the Tree of Life, a Forget Me Not in the care center or a Memorial Walkway brick, marker or bench.

We also offer ways for you to increase your income and reduce your taxes by signing up for a Haven Charitable Gift Annuity. Learn more here.
