How to Donate

While Hospice is a Medicare-funded program, the Hospice Benefit covers only a portion of the true cost of hospice care. The remainder is supported through donations. Butte Home Health & Hospice is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charity, meaning donations are tax-deductible. If you choose, there are several methods available to make donations:

Memorial Gifts:

With an "in memoriam donation" the Hospice will send a card to the family to notify them of your gift and will send you a tax receipt. While you honor your own special memories of a friend or a loved one, your gift will go on to provide comfort for many other patients and families in their time of need. Gifts of $100 or more will be honored with an engraved plaque placed on our memory board, which is displayed in the lobby of our office.

Honor Gifts:

A gift in honor of a special person is a delightful way to express your love and esteem for a significant person in your life. This type of donation can be used to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, or a special event in the life of the person you are honoring. The person honored by your contribution will receive a special letter announcing your gift.

Planned Gifts:

A planned gift is any contribution that is arranged or provided for during the giver's lifetime, but it may not actually be received by the hospice until after the donor's death. These gifts are often made through a will, an insurance policy, or a trust. These can also be made in cash, stocks, or other sources.

Checks via mail:

Gifts may be mailed (or delivered in person) to: Butte Home Health & Hospice 10 Constitution Drive Chico, CA 95973

Credit card via phone:

Please call our office at (530) 895-0462 and tell the receptionist you'd like to donate with a credit card. We can take care of the rest.
