Let us help you realize your dreams for a secure future while you help TWH&CH continue our care of the community in the tradition of our founders.
You can do this by using one of the following estate plans which are designed specifically to benefit you through tax benefits and at the same time to support The Washington Home & Community Hospices through your generous contribution.
Consult your financial advisor for the plan best suited to your circumstances. Some Planned Giving options include:
Bequests: you may name The Washington Home & Community Hospices as a beneficiary in your will, retirement plan or life insurance policy. You may also make gifts of specific items, assets, dollar amounts or percentages of your estate.
Charitable Gift Annuities: this provides you with an annuity for life in addition to several tax advantages.
Gifts of Real Estate: you can deduct the market value of real estate that has been paid off while avoiding capital gains taxes as well as removing the property as an asset from a taxable estate.
