You can tailor your estate and planned gift to your personal situation and obtain maximum tax rewards, maintain financial security and, most importantly, make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.

Unless otherwise requested, those who have made planned gifts are recognized as members of our 1979 Society. Through this distinguished circle, we honor and pay tribute to our caring and visionary friends who contribute to the future of our organization. We welcome you to join this prestigious group.

See the table below to learn more about how you can make a difference for future generations of Northeast Florida residents.

  • Wills and trusts

    Wills and trusts

    Make a gift of future support for Community Hospice & Palliative Care by including a gift for our organization in your will or trust. This option gives you full control over your assets while you are living and may reduce your estate taxes.


  • Securities


    Leverage your assets to make a gift to Community Hospice & Palliative Care and avoid capital gains tax by using your long-term appreciated securities instead of cash to make your gift. When you do, you may reduce your income tax and decrease out-of-pocket costs to you.

  • Ret. plans & life insurance

    Retirement plans & life insurance

    Make a significant gift with relatively low cost by naming Community Hospice & Palliative Care as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or by gifting a new or paid-up insurance policy. Both options can help reduce your income taxes.

  • Charitable trusts

    Charitable trusts

    Charitable lead or remainder trusts give you several options for supporting our care while creating your own income stream or reducing taxes on assets left to your family.

  • Charitable gift annuities

    Charitable gift annuities

    If you want to make a significant gift while supplementing your income with fixed annual payments, a charitable gift annuity may help you reduce your income and estate taxes while potentially realizing a higher rate of return than from existing assets.

  • Real estate

    Real estate

    By donating your home or property to Community Hospice & Palliative Care, or selling it to the organization at a discount, you can reduce your income and capital gains tax. You can even opt to continue using your home or property during your lifetime.

It takes a noble man to plant a seed for a tree that will someday give shade to people he may never meet. – David E. Trueblood
