community support allows Hospice of Southwest Florida to continue
its tradition of never billing patients for its services. It also
allows us to make decisions based on what is best for patients,
knowing that a caring community supports the work we do. Last year
approximately 10 percent of the care we provided was unreimbursed.
We rely on gifts from the community to fill this gap while we focus
on quality of life issues rather than financial considerations.
All monies contributed to Hospice
of Southwest Florida are used within our four-county service area
supporting the needs of local families. As a local, not-for-profit,
community-based organization, we are committed to respect the wishes
of donors who consistently tell us they want to help make a difference
for the dying of our communities. To this end, we diligently control
the costs of fund-raising.
Hospice of Southwest Florida is tax exempt under the U.S. Internal
Revenue code and all contributions are fully tax deductible. Checks
may be made payable to Hospice of Southwest Florida and forwarded
