How You Can Help

Joe Rogers, Hospice Chief Executive Officer, accepting a donation from the McLean Foundation’s Executive Director Denise Marshall

Hospice of Humboldt provides all of our patient care services to anyone who needs them, regardless of the ability to pay. Our grief support services are offered free of charge to all. Our services are partially supported by reimbursements, but these payments do not cover all of our costs. We depend on donations, fundraising, and the Hospice Shop to help support our services. Please consider helping us through financial support or by becoming a volunteer.

Hospice of Humboldt is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization and all donations are tax-deductible.


Individual donations in any amount are appreciated and help us provide care. Memorial donations can be given in memory of a person whose life you wish to celebrate. Acknowledgement of memorial donations can be sent to the family of the person being honored. To make a donation, simply click on the Donate Now button on the top left.

If United Way or  is available through your place of employment, you can easily designate Hospice as the recipient of your donation. Please keep in mind that many corporations have a matching donation program which will double your donation to Hospice. Please inquire with your Human Resources department.

Planned Giving
You can give a wonderful gift to Hospice through a bequest from your estate. Please contact us if you would like to explore the possibility of remembering Hospice in your will.

Hospice Shop
An easy way to support Hospice of Humboldt is by shopping at the Hospice Shop in Arcata, and donating your gently used items to the Shop. We can pick up or deliver large items such as furniture. The Shop is open Monday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m and on Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.. Donations are Monday through Saturday between 12:00 noon and 4:00 p.m.  Sorry, we do not accept children’s clothing or toys, medical equipment, mattresses, or anything that plugs in (except lamps).

Volunteers provide important support in many capacities – from office work, to patient care, to Hospice Shop support. Please contact Dennice Stone, Volunteer Coordinator, at 707-267-9813.

Special Donor Funds
Hospice of Humboldt has many special funds that fill the gaps between the reimbursement we receive from medical insurance and the actual cost of services we provide to our patients and the community.
