Why give to the VNA?

You can help us provide home healthcare to those recovering from injury or surgery, and those living with chronic illnesses. You can help us provide hospice care for patients and families facing life’s end. And you can help us comfort spouses, children, and families who have lost loved ones.

When you donate to the VNA, you don’t have to wonder if your gift will make a difference. Your support matters every day to the thousands of people who rely on the VNA for exceptional home health, hospice, and community wellness services. And the people who benefit from your donation aren’t strangers—they are your friends, your neighbors, your coworkers, perhaps even your own family.Below are some of the most common ways you can support the VNA, often while realizing tax benefits. No matter how – or how much – you give, your generosity will benefit all our patients in need, regardless of their financial resources.

ANNUAL FUND

Indian River County annual gifts strengthen the VNA and we rely on donor generosity so that we can provide healthcare to the most vulnerable and less fortunate in our community.

GARDEN TRIBUTE PLAQUE

Honor the memory of your loved one by memorializing them with an engraved granite plaque to be displayed in the VNA Hospice House tribute area, A Place for Remembering.

GRATEFUL PATIENT AND FAMILY PROGRAM

This is a special way to say thank you and celebrate a caregiver who cared for you or your family member when you needed it most.

CHARITABLE IRA DISTRIBUTIONS

For those 70 ½ years of age or older, the government requires that you take an annual Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA. Consider a Qualified Charitable Distribution to the VNA.

MEMORIALS AND HONORARIUMS

One of the most meaningful ways to acknowledge the passing of a loved one is by offering a gift as a tribute to a life lived. Often, individuals choose to make gifts in memory of their loved ones on birthdays or special occasions.

VEHICLE DONATION PROGRAM

Have an old car taking up space in your driveway? Donate it to VNA! Donating a car is easy! And so is donating other vehicles. We accept all types of vehicles nationwide — cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, ATVs, and even boats.

 

PLANNED GIVING

Planned gifts play an important role with the VNA. There are a number of tax-advantaged planned giving techniques you may consider.
