Donate – How to Help

 

When you donate to the Oceanside Hospice Society you are helping people, many of whom may be your friends, neighbors and loved ones, when they need it the most. This can be a confusing and isolating time for many and our belief is that no one needs to experience it alone.

Oceanside Hospice Society relies on financial support from a variety of sources. We work hard to raise funds to meet the ever-increasing need to care for people in our community, and it is because of our community’s great generosity that we can continue to provide services free of charge.

100% of all funds raised are used to help our local community. Oceanside Hospice Society greatly appreciates your support of our programs and services.

 

A gift to Oceanside Hospice Society affords you the opportunity to ensure that we can continue to provide our present services and expand as the need arises. There are many ways you can contribute to our work.

 

 

Oceanside Hospice Society is a registered non-profit charitable organization and receipts will be issued for all donations.  

 

 

 

Types of Gifts:

  • An outright donation goes to work immediately.
