Yolo Hospice counts on the generous support of our donors to help us continue to meet the end-of-life needs of our diverse community. Your generosity enables us to provide care for the body, mind, and spirit of individuals facing a life-limiting illness, and for their loved ones, regardless of ability to pay. Your support also directly affects Yolo Hospice’s ability to communicate, educate, and provide grief support to the community, free of charge.
The gifts of Yolo Hospice donors go directly and immediately to fulfill the mission of Yolo Hospice.

Special Ways to Give
Please explore the ideas below to learn about different options for personalizing your donation, or for providing long-term support.
In Their Name
Contributions in memory of, or in honor of, a special person are a very personal way to donate. Family members often suggest that memorial gifts be made to Yolo Hospice in lieu of flowers, to remember loved ones. If you know someone who is passionate about Yolo Hospice or hospice care, you can also donate in their name as a gift for birthdays, anniversaries, or other special days.
To pay tribute with your donation, please attach a note listing the honoree’s name, or include it in the notes section when you donate online. We acknowledge gifts received in the name of loved ones, as long as we receive contact information for the acknowledgement.
Monthly donations help give Yolo Hospice a solid base of dependable income, which enables us to plan our activities for the year. Convenient monthly giving also allows you to make your donation in easy-to-manage amounts. Yolo Hospice will send you one tax receipt for the total amount of your donation for the year. Call us at (800) 491-7711 or (530) 601-5777 to set up your monthly gift.
Legacy gifts are a unique giving opportunity for donors who include Yolo Hospice in their estate plans—whether by will, trust, insurance, or life income arrangement. Planned gifts can fulfill immediate needs or be given as endowments to ensure Yolo Hospice services continue to meet the needs of future generations. This is an opportunity for our donors to create their own legacies.
Examples of planned giving include:
- A bequest which specifies an amount of money, property, or percentage of the donor’s estate.
- A contingent bequest which allows Yolo Hospice to receive distribution from the estate if one or more of the named beneficiaries does not survive the donor.
- A lifetime charitable trust which can save both income and estate taxes for the donor.
- A charitable gift annuity which allows the donor to receive life income in exchange for a gift of cash, stock or other property of value.
Most planned gift options require consultation with the donor’s personal legal and financial advisors.
Yolo Hospice is a proud Certified Partner Agency of the United Way. If your employer or community participates with United Way or another payroll giving campaign, you can direct your contribution by designating it to Yolo Hospice.
