Give Where it is Needed Most

As a nonprofit organization, charitable contributions from individuals, corporations, foundations and organizations support the mission of HCS.

There are many ways to show your support for your local visiting nurse, hospice, and community-based services provider:

  • Gifts made by check or credit card

  • Gifts of stock

  • Gifts in honor of a caregiver

  • Gifts in memory of a loved one

  • A legacy gift in your will

Your Gift Matters

The mission of Home Healthcare, Hospice and Community Services (HCS) is to enable people to function throughout life at their optimal level of health, well-being and independence, according to their personal beliefs and choices.

Your gift supports a tradition of caring in southwestern New Hampshire that spans more  than 100 years.

Thank you for helping to make our service possible.

Gift Policy

HCS Annual Fund

Your gift to the HCS Annual Fund goes right to work to meet the greatest need.

Each year, we serve more than 4,000 people in southwestern New Hampshire, including those who are uninsured or under-insured. Skilled nursing following a hospital stay; delivery of a hot meal to a frail elder; comfort, care and support to a hospice patient, are just a few examples of how HCS serves the community.

Hospice at HCS Annual Fund

Hospice is about living life to the fullest while experiencing a terminal illness.

Hospice at HCS is changing the way our community faces serious illness and grief— one patient at a time.

Your gift will support the work we carry out every day and make it possible for others to receive the same high quality care.

Butterfly Park, next to HCS’ Keene office, was inspired by hospice families and volunteers who sought a living memorial to celebrate loved ones.

The park is for everyone to enjoy! Park features may be donated, including garden plots, statuary, or edging stones.

Call the Development Office at 352-2253 to schedule a walking  tour of Butterfly Park, or go to HCSservices.org to order a feature online.

Fostering Tomorrow’s Caregivers

The Barbara R. Duckett Scholarship Fund

Barbara Duckett served as President and CEO of HCS from 2000 to 2013.

During her tenure she was a strong advocate for professional development within the ranks of HCS staff, implementing programs that encourage and assist employees who pursue advanced degrees to enhance their knowledge and skills.

Comfort, care and support when home is where you want to be ...

In honor of Barbara’s service and commitment, HCS created the Barbara R. Duckett Scholarship. It will be awarded each year to an HCS employee who is pursuing  a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in Nursing, therapy, or social work.

Your gift to the Barbara R. Duckett Scholarship Fund is a tribute to Barbara’s legacy of service at HCS and a meaningful way to ensure that the most qualified caregivers are working in your community.

For more information about giving to HCS, please contact Sareen Sarna, Director of Development and Growth, at 603-352-2253 or 1-800-541-4145 or email ssarna@hcsservices.org.
