As a not-for-profit agency, Visiting Nurse relies on donations and fundraising to support programs not reimbursed by insurance, Medicare or Medicaid. These programs include: music and massage therapy, community grief and education programs and services and charity care. The agency is committed to providing the above services to our patients, families and our community who value the benefits of these programs.
Memorial donations and fundraisers are an essential element in the agency’s budget. This financial support not only provides operating funds but fosters and maintains the bond that develops when a loved one is in our care. The board and staff of Visiting Nurse are extremely grateful and humbled by the generosity of our patient families, friends and donors and are diligent stewards of these funds. Donations may be directed to a specific program if requested.
Consider making a tax deductible charitable bequest to Visiting Nurse. Bequests ensure long term security and growth for the agency while providing possible tax benefits for the donor. Talk to your financial planner or attorney about designating a gift through your estate, sale of stock or IRA. For more information, please call Kris Rajchel, Development Director at (260) 435-3212 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
