Find out about how you can help!

 Hospice Huntsville is responsible to raise 60% of our annual operating budget in order to offer our much needed programs free of charge to our residents and families. 
Government funding provided annually and partially covers the cost of wages for the nursing and personal support work at the residential hospice. Although this funding is secure, it obviously does not allow the operations of the residential hospice building including heat, hydro, food, laundry and basic office products for charting to continue without the efforts of our fundraising team.

There are several options available for donations.

TYPES
The follow eligible securities can be donated:
* Stocks & Bonds * Mutual Funds
* Futures * Warrants

Life Insurance
Benefits: Life insurance can provide a sizable source of income to Hospice Huntsville at a relatively moderate cost to you.  Life insurance can also bring significant tax breaks on the dispersal of your estate and does not have to reduce the size of your estate.

Bequests
BENEFIT
For any gift designated in your will, your estate receives a donation receipt that can offset tax otherwise payable by your estate.
TYPES
• Specific Bequests are the most common gifts. You choose a specific sum of money, a particular property, or a percentage of your estate to go to HOSPICE HUNTSVILLE
• Residual Bequests allow you to direct the balance of your estate, or a portion of the balance to be given to HOSPICE HUNTSVILLE after providing for other beneficiaries.
• Contingent Bequests allows you to direct HOSPICE HUNTSVILLE to receive all or a portion of your estate in the event of the prior death of other specific beneficiaries.
• Residual Bequests Subject to Life Interest allow you to direct that HOSPICE HUNTSVILLE is the ultimate recipient of the estate after specific beneficiaries have had the use of the income from the estate during their lifetimes

Annuities and Charitable Remainder Trust
BENEFITS
Annuities provide donors who are at least 60 years old with a guaranteed income for life, in exchange for an initial gift to HOSPICE HUNTSVILLE. The income earned by the annuity in your lifetime and the balance of the funds in the annuity upon the dispersal of your estate are received by HOSPICE HUNTSVILLE.
TYPES
• A Charitable Gift Plus Annuity requires a minimum gift of $10,000. Approximately 30% goes to HOSPICE HUNTSVILLE, with the remainder being used to purchase an annuity for you from an insurance provider. A significant part of the annuity cash flow is a tax-free return of capital. The donor also gets an immediate tax credit for the approximately 30% portion of the original deposit that goes to HOSPICE HUNTSVILLE.
• With a Charitable Remainder Trust, you give a lump sum of principle from which you receive a net income. You receive a donation receipt for the residual interest in the property transferred to the trust.
