By giving to Duke HomeCare & Hospice you are joining in our mission to provide innovative, thoughtful care, using an interdisciplinary team approach, to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients, families and the communities we serve. DHCH is a nonprofit organization that provides care to terminally ill patients in nine central North Carolina counties, regardless of their ability to pay. We pay for the care we provide to those who can not afford to pay through individual donations, corporate sponsorships and gifts, foundation grants and through fundraising events.
Gifts to Duke HomeCare & Hospice are tax-deductible, charitable contributions that help provide funds to offset the tremendous costs of uncompensated charity care, seed money for new programs and create and sustain advocacy programs to help patients and their families heal emotionally. Duke HomeCare & Hospice is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and our Federal Tax ID number is 56-2070036.
Patients and families are stronger when they are together, and their presence helps individuals cope with end of life care issues. While we cannot make medicine taste better or make a person live longer, we can help lessen the burden and ensure that families have the stability and resources to enjoy their family members’ last days on earth. Last year, Duke Hospice supported over 1,100 patients and families because of the love and generous donations of our donors and volunteers.
Your donations make a difference and touch the lives of families on a daily basis. Whether you are donating supplies, care shawls, cash, stock or sponsoring an event it all adds up and makes an impact on the patients and families that use hospice services or stay in one of our two inpatient facilities (The Meadowlands in Hillsborough or the Hock Family Pavilion in Durham).
