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.
