Annual and Planned Giving

"I give to Hospice of Yuma because I know my gift will be used as I intended, and I know it will stay in the community."

Annual & Planned Giving

Many of our loyal supporters include Hospice of Yuma in their estate plans because they have experienced the comfort of hospice care. An estate honors your connection with our work and ensures that we will always be here for the families in our community. Ensure your legacy by creating an estate plan that provides for you and your loved ones, meets your financial goals, and supports Hospice of Yuma.

There are various ways that you can leave your legacy and help a non-profit organization. They include:


Giving through a will is a convenient way to leave a lasting legacy for the organization(s) you believe in. Bequests to our organization can be made to the Hospice of Yuma General Fund, Endowment Fund, or Merrifield Fund.

Life Insurance

These can include gifts of assets, policies that have “outlived” their original purpose or a new policy naming your charity of choice as the beneficiary. Charities benefit from long-term funding and donors receive tax benefits.

Stocks, Gift Annuities, Trusts & Estates

These types of funds assure the funding for the future of a charity while simultaneously benefiting the donor with income and/or tax benefits.

Memorial & Honorarium Gifts

Memorial donations are made in memory of a friend or loved one that has passed. Honorariums are made in honor of a birthday, anniversary, or other special occasions of family, friends, and neighbors.

Endowment Fund

Gifts to the Hospice of Yuma Endowment Fund are held in perpetuity and the interest income is used for patient care and operational expenses.

Merrifield Fund

This is a fund that was established for Hospice of Yuma by Albert & Doris Merrifield through the Yuma Community Foundation for the construction of a future Hospice House.
