Legacy Circle

What is your Legacy?

Create a lasting legacy in our community now and for years to come

Endowment Fund

Community Hospice has had the opportunity to both effect and be affected by so many individuals and families over the years. Our legal name is Hospice of Tuscarawas County, Inc., but you know us as Community Hospice of Tuscarawas, Stark, Carroll and Columbiana Counties because we serve all of these communities. Community Hospice is a not-for-profit organization. As such, Community Hospice is not in existence to make a profit. The mission of our Community Hospice is to serve the communities that support us. Many have found ways to provide financial support for the ongoing work of the organization they care so deeply about. This support has taken the form of involvement in fundraisers, yearly contributions, investment in The Hospice House and other avenues of furthering the work that our hospice does. In 1993, a group of dedicated volunteers established the Hospice Endowment Fund that would help to ensure that the work of Community Hospice continues in the future. You can help to “ensure” that Community Hospice will be financially able to continue its work long into the future by setting up a gift to the Community Hospice Endowment Fund.  Planned or deferred giving enables you to arrange charitable contributions in ways that help you to meet your personal objectives. Your attorney and/or accountant can further assist you in determining which type of gift will most reflect your desires and also minimize any potential income and/or estate taxes.  Consider any of these vehicles as a way of establishing a gift that will keep on giving in the future:

  1. Outright gift of money, land, marketable securities, stocks or other assets.
  2. Bequest
  3. Retirement Plan Assets
  4. Life Insurance
  5. Trust Funds

The Community Hospice Legacy Circle recognizes individuals who have included Community Hospice in their estate plan through an outright lifetime gift, a bequest, life insurance policy, individual retirement account, or some type of trust. The Legacy Circle has been established to recognize those who have donated (or designated) at least $5,000.00 of cash or other assets to the Community Hospice Endowment Fund. If you have included Community Hospice Endowment Fund in your estate planning at the designated level, we encourage you to let us know so we may recognize you as a member of The Community Hospice Legacy Circle.  

A form for this purpose is enclosed with this brochure or can be made available by contacting the Community Hospice Development Office.

The Community Hospice Legacy Circle members receive a memento of their commitment along with an invitation to an annual Legacy Circle Luncheon.  We hope you will consider committing in such a significant way to the ongoing work of Community Hospice.
