The Giving Heart of Hospice

Wills and Estate Gifts

Join our Circle of Care by including Hospice of the Chesapeake in your will or trust or by designating us as the beneficiary of your IRA or life insurance policy. A gift through your will or living trust, known as a bequest, enables you to support Hospice of the Chesapeake at a more significant level than ever imagined. Arranged today, a bequest is not paid until after your passing. You may give a specific sum, property, or a percentage of your estate.

Visit our planned giving website for more information about how these and other types of planned gifts may avoid probate and reduce inheritance taxes.

If you have already included Hospice of the Chesapeake in your will or estate plan, please contact us as we would like to personally thank you for your generosity and acknowledge your donation.

Donor-Advised Funds

You may also recommend a gift through a donor-advised fund at a community foundation, commercial fund, or other organization. We offer DAF Direct for donors with funds housed at Fidelity or Schwab.

Donor-advised funds (DAFs) are an easy, effective way to support organizations such as Hospice of the Chesapeake and other causes you care about. Here are five guidelines to recommend a grant from your DAF.

Gifts of Stock and Property

Donations of appreciated stocks and securities enable donors to realize tax benefits while receiving the satisfaction of helping our organization.
