Many times, a family will look for ways to say "Thank you" to the clinicians and staff that have compassionately cared for their loved one. There are several ways to do this.
Gifts in Memory of a Loved One
A family may tell their friends that “In Lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to Providence TrinityCare Hospice Foundation. “When such donations are made, the family is mailed a card with the name and address of the person who made the gift. The dollar amount of the gift is not disclosed. The person who made the donation also receives a written acknowledgement that serves as their receipt. Should the family wish, the Foundation office will provide pre-addressed envelopes for the family to distribute. Such gifts may also be made online. All contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law, and truly appreciated.
Guardian Angels – Donations to Recognize the Team
Nurses, physicians, aides, social workers, chaplains and volunteers of all kinds – for these dedicated caregivers, their healing work is more than a job, it is a calling to serve and fulfill the Providence mission. When you donate in honor of an outstanding caregiver, he or she is recognized as a Guardian Angel and receives a special pin as a symbol of your appreciation. When you give in honor of the Guardian Angel(s) who helped your family, it is not only a meaningful expression of gratitude, it is also a vital investment that strengthens the care and comfort we provide. Guardian Angel contributions may be made online or by contacting the Foundation Office.
