Why Giving Matters


Saluting our Donors
Every donor who makes a gift makes a difference, and we are grateful for those who share our commitment to helping patients attain the best health and quality of life possible. Whether your gift came in the form of an annual donation, a memorial contribution, or other types of support, your investment in our mission makes a truly profound impact in the lives of people throughout the community.

Our Donor Recognition Program extends appreciation in a variety of ways. Our donors always receive a personal acknowledgment letter and we proudly publish recognition in our annual report for all donors who have given $100 or more in the prior calendar year. (Donors may also choose to remain anonymous.) Additionally, we publish all of the names of those Named in Memoriam or tribute.

A variety of naming opportunities exist in recognition of varying levels of support including:

Arbor Society

Arbor Society members enable us to provide critical care to patients, comfort, and support to families and offer guidance and strength to those facing the challenges of advanced illness or end of life.

Donors who make cumulative contributions totaling $2,500 or more in one year, or have consecutively given financial support of $1,000 annually over three years or more, are recognized as members of the Arbor Society with an inscribed leaf on the Giving Tree displayed at High Pointe House.

While the reasons for supporting the work of our agencies may not include recognition, identifying those who give at the Arbor Society level is important. It provides an opportunity to share the significance of philanthropy to the wellbeing of our community and to inspire others to help each other during times of difficulty.

Legacy Society

The decision to make a charitable gift comes from the heart. There are many ways to give that will secure future care for patients by planning charitable contributions as part of your financial and estate planning. Many such plans offer tax advantages and benefits to the donor.

The most common types of charitable gift planning include:

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