  Donations and Gifts

Generous 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 to:
