HOW YOU CAN HELP
The generosity of individuals in our community enables Hospice Care of the Lowcountry to deliver the very best care and support to families facing end-of-life issues, it validates the importance of our programs and services and assists us in our growing role within the community.
Your annual donations are unrestricted which allows HCL to distribute the funds where they are most needed. We will allocate your contributions to the programs and services that have the most significant impact on HCL’s goals.
Gifts to support specific needs. Please see our Services tab for more information about the function of your donation.
Planned giving ensures that you can realize your charitable giving goals, whether during your lifetime, or post–mortem. Please contact us at 843.706.2296 to discuss planned giving to HCL.
If your children are grown, you may no longer need valuable insurance policies. Transferring ownership and beneficiary rights to HCL may result in a tax deduction on the gift and on any future premium payments you make, and allow you to make a larger than anticipated gift now. New life insurance policies can also make good charitable gifts.
Retirement funds can be heavily taxed when transferred to heirs at your death. Using these funds to make a gift to HCL instead of other assets could result in more money for your children in your estate.
If you are living on a fixed income and have appreciated assets that are producing little dividends, you may be able to fund a charitable gift annuity that will provide regular income for the remainder of your life – no matter how long you live.
Trusts are a flexible tool that can provide income for a loved one or charity for a period of years, with the trust assets providing an additional benefit to charity or your heirs.
By including HCL and those charities that are important to you and your family during your lifetime in your Will or estate plan, you have an opportunity to give assets that you no longer need. Click here for more information.
