Ways to Give

More ways to give
Annual givingRead More : Annual giving
Annual Giving supports the care we provide patients and families. It can be done in many easy ways. Some people choose to donate to us as one of their charities of choice once each year, but contributions can come at any time, and gifts may be made monthly, quarterly, or biannually. These contributions may be of any size, large or small, and can be directed to support specific programs or where the need is greatest.
Many employers have matching gift programs that can double or even triple your contribution. Make the most of your donation by requesting a matching gift form from your employer. Send the completed and signed form with your gift, and we’ll take care of the rest!

- Wills and Bequests
- Life Income Plans
- Life Insurance/Retirement Accounts
- Stocks or Securities
- Property and Life Estates

Gifts-in-kindRead More : Gifts-in-kind
A Gift-in-Kind is a wonderful way to support the care we provide to patients and their families.
New/handmade quilts, afghans, and blankets for patients help to bring the warmth and comforts of home. A donation of flower bouquets brightens the spirits of our patients and families. Other accepted donations include new and unused care items for High Pointe House patient families such as travel-size toothbrushes, toothpaste, and soaps. In addition, contributing a gift certificate, sports tickets, group or travel experiences or other items of value to our fundraising events/silent auction helps us raise critical funds to support the work we do.
If you would like to donate a Gift-in-Kind and arrange delivery or have questions about the program, please contact us at 978.552.4188 or email@example.com.
Due to liability reasons, we are unable to accept used equipment, supplies or other items whether through a donation or sale. Below is a list of community partners that may be a resource for these types of donations. Additionally, your local senior center may also be a resource and can provide more information on where donations are accepted in your area.

Tribute walkwayRead More : Tribute walkway
You can support the care, compassion and comfort at High Pointe House with a donation recognized by a personalized inscribed brick in the tribute walkway. Your brick may be engraved with a message you create – in honor of a person, in celebration of a milestone, in memory of a loved one, or with words of compassion to help others.
Your gift of support through the Tribute Walkway helps support essential services Tufts Medicine Care at Home provides, such as grief support, volunteer training, and Subsidized Care —a program that provides free or discounted care for patients who have no other way to pay for the services they need from Merrimack Valley Hospice.
Information on inscribing tribute bricks can be found by downloading our Tribute Walkway brochure.

Frequently asked questions
What is an estate? What is a will?
An estate is the total of a person’s assets. Cash, investments, real estate, and other property are among the assets that make up your estate. A will declares your instructions about how these assets should be distributed after your passing. It’s an opportunity to take care of loved ones, meet personal obligations, and leave a legacy through a charitable gift.
If I die without a will, can my survivors decide how to distribute my assets based on wishes I expressed during my lifetime?
If you die without a will, your estate will be distributed according to state law, which may not be in accordance with your wishes.
Can I change my will after it’s been written?
A will is meant to protect your wishes, and changes may be made at any time either with a new will or a codicil (a document that amends, rather than replaces, a previously executed will). You should always review your will after major life changes, like the birth of a child, marriage, divorce, or change in residency to another state.
Can I leave a donation to Tufts Medicine Care at Home in my will even if it isn’t a huge sum of money?
Absolutely, every gift matters, no matter the amount! Your monetary support helps individuals get the care and services that they need. A bequest allows you to give a specific dollar amount, a percentage, an asset such as real estate, or residual of your estate.
We recommend consulting a lawyer or financial advisor when preparing a will or making updates to ensure the document is valid under state law.
