Be Part of Something Really Special
Help us raise $100,000 to create 4 private hospice suites so families and loved ones have comfort and privacy at the end of life. These custom suites will be specially designed to alleviate stress by creating a home like atmosphere while providing access to the full range of comfort care. Our goal is to open these suites in early 2017.

Memorial and Honorarium Gifts
A gift given in honor or memory of a loved one lives on to benefit others. Pay tribute and honor someone special or commemorate an important milestone. Upon receipt of your gift, we will send a personalized tribute card to the Honoree or family so they know about your gift. A donation amount will not be listed but you will receive a receipt for the amount of your gift.
Continue the tradition. The Legacy Fund offers the opportunity to provide a living legacy to Columbia by planning for a future gift in your will or estate plan. Gifts to this plan will provide financial stability to Columbia for years to come.
Oversight of the Legacy Fund is the responsibility of the Board of Directors. When the Fund reaches $250,000 the Board may direct the earnings to programs or services that enhance the lives of those we serve. The suggested minimum donation is $5,000. The assets in the Fund are professionally managed and maintained separately from other assets held by Columbia.
The Development Director will be happy to meet with you and/or your professional advisor regarding your interest in a gift to this fund. Please contact Beth Hartman (206) 633-6177 or complete our contact form on-line.
