A little compassion goes a long way.

When you make a donation to Hosparus Health, you’re helping people in your local community who need us the most. This includes care for children, veterans, and others, as well as grief counseling. Thanks to our generous donors, this year Hosparus Health will again provide quality end-of-life care and associated services to thousands of families across Kentucky and Indiana. On behalf of those patients and their families, we express our deepest gratitude.

Giving Opportunities

In addition to a one-time or recurring donation, there are plenty of other ways to support Hosparus Health and our mission. Find one that’s right for your situation.

Matching Gifts

Looking to double your efforts on behalf of Hosparus Health? The organization you work for may participate in a matching gift program. The idea is simple: Participating companies match, and in some cases double or even triple, the charitable contributions made by their employees (sometimes including those made by spouses and retirees) to eligible nonprofit organizations. Imagine the difference you can make by simply checking to see if your employer participates in matching gifts!

If you would like to see if your company is eligible, reach out to our office at 800-264-0521.

A big thank you to the following organizations who currently match gifts to Hosparus Health.

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.
