Charitable Giving

At Care Partners, we assist family members and other care givers to meet the needs of seriously ill patients with confidence and assurance to achieve patient goals such as improved comfort, communication, mobility, safety, and ease of care giving. When you donate to Care Partners, you help us to cover patients, family and caregivers with a blanket of support that relieves stress, anxiety and fear.

helping-handsYour tax deductible gift will help meet the immediate needs of patients and families experiencing a life-limiting illness, regardless of their ability to pay.  Your gift matters and makes a difference!

Your gift will help meet the immediate needs of patients and families experiencing a life-limiting illness. Because of our donors, we are able to continue caring for everyone facing the end of life, including the underserved and uninsured in our community.

Care Partners (formerly Hospice of Washington County) has served as the region’s leading hospice since 1982, and donations ensure our compassionate care will continue as we head into a future filled with challenges and responsibilities as our population ages.

All the good your gift can do:

  • Provide pre-hospice care for patients and families who need more care but are still seeking curative treatment.
  • Treat a patient’s pain and suffering with medication and ensure they don’t have to go without because they have reached a gap in coverage or lack insurance.
  • Help patients who struggle with feelings of fear or loneliness benefit from social worker or chaplain visits.
  • Provide grieving families with support and counseling, and ensure that grief and loss support groups are there when needed.
  • Help train volunteers to make the last days of a patient’s life meaningful – by reading to patients or writing letters for them, providing companionship, or helping to fulfill their last wishes.

When you include Care Partners in your estate plans, you ensure care for future generations. Through planned giving, there are many ways that your philanthropy can benefit your financial needs and tax planning and at the same time help to continue the work of Hospice & Palliative Care Partners in our community.

Making a Bequest

A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of your estate planning advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to family, friends or a charity as part of your estate plan.  A bequest to Care Partners will qualify your estate for a charitable deduction equal to the entire amount you bequeath.

A bequest may be designated as:

  • a percentage of your estate
  • a specific dollar amount or asset
  • a gift from the balance or residue of your estate

Sample Bequest Language for a General Bequest:

“I give to Care Partners, whose current legal address is 1600 NW Compton Drive, Suite 210 Hillsboro, Oregon 97006 the sum of $___________ (or specifically describe property or percentage of estate or residual), to be used for its general charitable purposes as the Board of Directors of Care Partners shall determine.”

NOTE: Hospice & Palliative Care Partners is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-deductible, 501(c) 3 non-profit organization and tax identification number is 93-0836166.

Retirement IRAs

A retirement asset, such as an IRA account, makes an excellent bequest option. If the IRA were given to your family, much of the value may be lost through estate and income taxes. By designating a charity as the beneficiary of all or part of your IRA, the full value of the gift is transferred tax-free at your death and your estate receives an estate tax charitable deduction.

I couldn’t have done it without their guidance and support…

"I was always somewhat afraid of hospice because that was a sure sign of the end. But, -- I couldn’t have done it without their guidance and support. Support both before the end and after the end. After that final day, I’m still receiving needed support. Thank you for your help and all your wonderful angels."
