The Power of Giving as ONE OF MANY
As champion philanthropists, Compassionate Givers enjoy a shared sense of purpose and fulfillment. You’ll learn about specific Harbor Hospice programs and projects and have the opportunity to engage with staff and with each other to get an in-depth understanding of the organization and the community.
Compassionate Givers is open to anyone wishing to provide focused financial support annually to Harbor Hospice programs. By offering two stages of membership, Compassionate Givers welcomes and encourages both seasoned philanthropists and beginning donors who are ready to explore their interest in charitable giving.
- Leadership Donors are 40 years old and up who contribute $1,000 annually through Compassionate Givers.
- Rising Leaders are under 40 years old who contribute $500 annually through Compassionate Givers.
Membership is renewed at the end of each calendar year.
Members meet quarterly to learn about the capital and program needs of Harbor Hospice and Palliative Care. Once a year, members vote on how they wish their combined funds will be used. Absentee votes are welcome from those who cannot attend the meetings. The project receiving the majority of votes is awarded the total amount of the combined gifts.
Qualifying gifts for individual membership in Compassionate Givers include cash, check, credit card payment and appreciated stock. Each member’s annual gift will be applied toward the capital need or program chosen by Compassionate Givers. After a member’s annual financial commitment has been met, the member is welcome to contribute to other Harbor Hospice programs of their choice.
