Planned Giving

We invite you to join the Circle of Hope.  This society of special people was formed to recognize the many loyal friends who have established a personal legacy in support of Hospice of Humboldt's patients and families by making a provision in their will or estate plan.

When you commit to making a planned gift to Hospice of Humboldt in 2020, your gift will be matched by a community donor with a $1,000 gift to Hospice, up to $25,000.

" We should all be able to shape our own meaningful end of life journey.  I planned a gift to Hospice of Humboldt because I want everyone in our community to be fully supported and loved at life's end."  -Kimberley Pittman-Schultz
