Hospice of Charles County is a nonprofit service provider. Hospice of Charles County, Inc. is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Being a community based, non-profit provider, the needs of hospice patients are the primary concern, not profits or financial rewards to stockholders. Our goal is to provide the highest quality of service without placing payment demands or financial burdens on the patient and their family.
As Charles County grows, so does the need for hospice care.

Planned Giving (estate planning, wills and bequests, living wills, and trusts)
A bequest to Hospice of Charles County is one of the most meaningful and thoughtful legacies you can provide to your favorite charity. Through your planned gift, you will ensure that medical care and services offered to terminally ill patients and their families will continue. Plus, it is a wonderful way to express your support.
To ensure that your exact intentions are carried out and not decided by the state, your bequest should be clearly stated in your original Will or Codicil. A bequest may include cash, stocks, bonds, securities, real estate, pension plans, retirement accounts, life insurance or other property. It may also be a percentage of your estate or designated as a specific amount of money. Using percentages will give you better flexibility and allow for changes in your finances. Your bequest may also provide valuable tax benefits. It is best to contact your attorney, personal accountant or estate planner to assist you in this important matter.
