Hospice Maui cares for Maui’s seriously ill residents in their homes and provides, without charge to those without insurance or who cannot afford it, whatever is needed for that care. In addition, we do our job in a way that exceeds the highest standards of hospice care. Because of these two factors, our care costs more than the insurance coverage we receive. Thus it is through the generosity of our contributors that we are able to maintain our exceptional hospice care program, year in and year out. Throughout our history we have enjoyed tremendous community support and that is what helps us continue to meet the need for our services. We are a 501c(3) charitable organization, and your gifts are fully tax deductible as permitted by law.

“It is through the generosity of our community that we are able to maintain our exceptional hospice care program, year in and year out. Mahalo.”

A memorial gift is a touching tribute to friends and relatives who have died. These gifts are an important part of our ongoing support. As with regular contributions, we thank the donor, and we also send an acknowledgment of the gift to the family or friends of the person in whose name the gift is made. Some people also honor living persons with gifts to Hospice Maui in the person’s name. Hospice Maui is also a Maui United Way Agency, and a recipient of funds from the Pacific Area Combined Federal Campaign. Donations can be made and designated to Hospice Maui through both of these entities.

Hospice Maui Establishes a Legacy Circle

Hospice Maui has recently established a Legacy Circle to honor those who have included our organization in their estate plan. Our Legacy Circle members consider a plan to leave a gift or bequest to Hospice Maui. Naming Hospice Maui in your will can be a wonderful way to leave a legacy and will help to ensure access to compassionate hospice care for all residents in need. Including Hospice Maui in your will or estate plan can make a difference and does not require great wealth.
Legacy gifts include:
• Designation of a fixed amount through your Will or Trust
• Gift of Real Estate or a percentage of a property
• Beneficiary of a Savings Bond
• Beneficiary in an IRA, retirement plan

When you name Hospice Maui as a beneficiary of a gift in your trust or will, you can simply include the following language:

“A gift of (specified gift) will be made to Hospice Maui, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, tax ID 99-0215149.”

If you would like to ensure that your gift to Hospice Maui is used for a specific purpose, we are available to work with you on a Memorandum of Charitable Giving that will outline in writing your intent, and offers instructions as to how to apply your gift when it arrives. To learn more about leaving a legacy gift to Hospice Maui, please contact our Executive Director, Greg LaGoy or Advancement Director, Astrid Grupenhoff.

*If you have already included Hospice Maui in your will or estate plan, please contact us and let us know if we may include you in our Legacy Circle listings and recognition events.

Hospice Maui will accept vehicles that are clean, running and legal with a current Safety Inspection Sticker and Registration. Due to an Internal Revenue Service change in the laws governing vehicles, the donor can no longer take the Blue Book value as a donation. Once the vehicle is sold, Hospice Maui will send the donor a letter stating the amount for which it was sold. This is the amount that can be claimed as a donation. We will accept miscellaneous equipment and supplies such as wheelchairs, egg crates, shower chairs and benches, commodes, canes and walkers, etc. We also accept unused items such as bed-liners, adult diapers and briefs, lotions and ointments, gauze, no-rinse shampoo, and other medical supplies for patient use. Donated equipment and supplies will help those in our community who are in need. Please call Hospice Maui at 244-5555 if you have questions about donating items or you are in need of donated items.

Hospice Maui’s vision is to fill an unmet need in our community, thereby increasing access to hospice care with a facilities expansion that includes the design and construction of both a 5-bed hospice residence and a hospice care coordination center to replace the one we have operated from for nearly 20 years, and which we have outgrown. The 5-bed hospice residence, which will be available to all residents of Maui County, will be known as “Hale Ho`olu`olu” (“a place for comfort, compassion, and care”). The State of Hawaii has already awarded this project a Certificate of Need. It will be a place where patients in their last days or weeks of life will receive our specialized care to meet their medical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs.

Here you will find program support and items that we would love to have but just don’t have the means to purchase.

Please take a look and see if there is something you would like to contribute. If you would like more information about any of the items, please contact the office.

All donations are fully tax deductible.

Hospice Maui needs some small lockers for our staff to keep personal belonging in while they are working in our Hospice Maui Hale. Ideally, this would be two banks of three or four lockers. Please call us at 244-5555 if you can help us acquire these without us having them shipped from the mainland.

Timeshare Donation Program #donate #couch

#timeshare donation


Home Timeshare Donation Program

Donating Your Timeshare

Trying to sell the timeshare unit you are not using and you don’t want the hassle? If you don’t want to walk away from the timeshare and lose its entire value, you have several options. Reselling the timeshare unit may expose you to resale scams who compete with legitimate firms for your attention and business, and an internet “for sale by owner” sale entails some costs and a commitment of your time to offer the property. The above methods are likely to yield – with only rare exceptions – only a small fraction of your original purchase price. Another possibility is donating your timeshare to charity. You receive a tax deduction and benefit from the good feeling of your timeshare going to a good cause. This works only if you can find a charity willing to take the timeshare off your hands. The process is also complicated.

To simplify your donation, Timeshare Travel & Associates, Inc (TTA) a pioneer in the industry, has provided a way help timeshare owners make their donations. TTA, a resale marketing firm based in Salt Lake City, Utah, since 1984. Has accepted timeshares for donation to charity for more than a decade. Many timeshare units don’t sell for a lot of money, and transferring ownership of a deeded timeshare takes almost as much work as transferring ownership of a house. In addition, the annual maintenance fee has to be paid, and usage is time-sensitive, a problem that doesn’t exist with regular real estate.

Unless the charity wants to use the timeshare for recreational purposes, it must sell the donated property to raise funds. TTA accepts a timeshare donation in the owner’s name, donates the unit to a charity, then buys it back from the charity and sells it. TTA imposes no service charge to handle a donation and must stay in compliance with Federal tax laws.

“Timeshare donations are a win-win situation for the owners, many of whom can get a tax write-off worth up to 30 percent of the fair market value of their donated timeshare. The charity wins because we buy back the unit, and we try to resell it. The risk is with us, because we may have to sit on the property and pay the annual maintenance fee for a few years.”

“We ask sellers to pay the closing cost for the donation,” says TTA. “Each donation is handled like all regular timeshare resales with a recorded paper trail. We donate the unit to charity, and then buy it back. We have also helped several charities raffle off timeshare units.”

Charities to which TTA donates include:

  • Children’s Miracle Network, Provo, Utah office
  • Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, Portland Oregon office
  • YMCA, Hawaii Office
  • United Way, Toronto Canada office for Canadian timeshare owners.
  • Also includes about a dozen smaller religious charities and homeless shelters around the U.S.

The IRS rule on non-cash items is fair market value on items worth up to $5,000, without the need for an appraisal. Over $5,000 requires a certifiedappraisal dated within 60 days of the donation. In some instances, comparable listings found on a legitimate website will be acceptable in lieu of a appraisal. The taxpayer making the donation receives a Form 8283 in the year of the donation. Rather than taking the time for a appraisal, most everyone we work with stays under the $5,000 threshold.

Tax rules limit the total donations that a taxpayer can make in a single year, so if a family has several units to donate, TTA advises them to donate on unit a year for several years.

Who should consider timeshare philanthropy? “Anyone in a higher tax bracket where the tax incentives are good. Not someone on Social Security or unemployed,” says TTA. TTA also will combine the donation of a timeshare with a trade-in-for a larger unit in the same destination area or in a different area.

Support Hospice Any Way You Can

The Community Hospice is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization providing high quality end-of-life care to residents of seven counties covering over 4,000 square miles in the Capital Region of New York State.

Some of the most vulnerable people in our community are those who are struggling with advanced illness, facing the end of life, and recovering from the loss of a loved one. The Community Hospice is committed to serving these people.

While insurance reimbursements cover some costs, they do not fund the programs and services that reach out to care in a comprehensive way. No one is turned away due to financial need.

That is where your active support comes in. You can join the caregiving team by considering a donation to The Community Hospice. Contributions provide funds for community awareness, educational programs, and special services so that Hospice care is readily available, fully understood, and appropriately utilized by those in need.

Your contributions make many services possible, including:

You can express your generosity through several different ways:

Charity Dispatch Car Donation – Automobile Donation #organ #donation #australia

#automobile donation


Automobile Donation

The tax law changes which came about in 2004 caused many non-profit and charity programs to shut down, and their valuable community services were stopped and the reason for this was because they were not able to keep the non-profit organization going because they could not gain the necessary funding. In an attempt to rescue charity organizations across the country, the automobile donation program began and over the years, is has proven to be very successful and is has been able to fund several charities and allow them to continue offering their services in communities that are in dire need of aid. The fundamental objective of the automobile donation project or program is simple, and it is to provide funding to non-profit organizations which, without such programs in place, would have to shut down. These non-profit organizations include the likes of the Goodwill™ Industries, both of which are well known charities and both offer invaluable assistance and aid to those who have been affected by disasters or families who have been hit by the current recession. These organizations work all over the country and offer important services to families that are needy of assistance. The automobile donation will create funds which are needed to allow them to continue with their work or alternatively, the automobile may be sold, and the proceeds of the sale will go towards funding for the charity, or directly to meet the needs of the family or group.

Automobile owners who believe that their vehicle is not suitable for an automobile donation. are advised that we will accept automobiles in all in conditions, and the car which is not in running condition will bring in funds by stripping the car for spares. The sale of the spares will be used for the funding of the charity organization, and as such, any type of automobile donation. no matter the condition or the age of the vehicle, is a selfless act and will go a long way in assisting an organization that is battling to stay afloat because of a lack of funding. The automobile donation is very common and in fact, donating a car is as common as donating used household goods or money and since the automobile donation process is expertly handled by Charity Dispatch, which will handle the collection of the automobile at no cost to the donor, those who would like to make an automobile donation will find our services to be very helpful.

Charity Dispatch is a specialist in automobile donation s and more than offering assistance with an automobile donation. donors are free to make donations of SUVs, boats, motorcycles, airplanes and timeshares. Those making an automobile donation will not only be offering a helping hand to organizations that are in dire need of funds, but since the charities represented on our website are all IRS Approved non-profit organizations, the donor will benefit from a tax deduction with the automobile donation. Our toll free number, 800.506.0172, is continually manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by live operators, which means that any individuals or companies wanting to become part of the automobile donation program will be met with the assistance of Charity Dispatch to take care of the donation process. Feel free to browse the website,, for more information.
