Hearts for Hospice
Give the gift of another day
We rely on funding and contributions from our donors, who, for the last 30 years, have supported us every step of the way. Our patients are never charged for hospice services not covered by insurance and no patient is ever turned away because of inability to pay or no insurance coverage.
The financial pressure of health care plans can weigh heavily on an individual and their family. At times in life, when attentive medical care and support is crucial, health bills should be the last thing on your mind.
If you’d like to donate to the Hospice of Lake Cumberland, know that your contribution will be used to make the last days of someone’s life more comfortable and pain-free or help bereaved members of our community process and work through their grief.
All donations to Hospice of Lake Cumberland are tax deductible.

Can you donate to our Children’s Bereavement Program?
Help us help children heal following the death of a parent.
Please support our Children’s Bereavement Program. Your donation goes directly to provide this important program – families are never charged for their children to participtate in the program.
Grief in children can be profoundly different than adults. The scars caused by loss must be acknowledged so the process of healing can begin.
Our bereavement program is free to any child needing help processing loss. It is free and open to all children regardless of whether they are from a “hospice family”.
Donate to fulfill a patient’s Bucket List request
The Hospice of Lake Cumberland Bucket List program seeks to help patients check off an important item from their own bucket list.
*Patients who enter care early and are able to be stabilized, are better suited for this activity.
Some examples of bucket list activities we have facilitated are: a father gets to see his sons “opening day” football game, even though it was over 3 hours away, (pictures attached), one man just wanted to take a ride in a convertible with the top rolled down and his dog by his side.
Another wanted to go fishing one more time.
A little girl, who loved balloons, had her home literally filled with balloons of every color, (pictures).
These are just a few examples of the Bucket List request we have been able to fulfill with the help of your donations.

Bequests or Estate Gifts
We all want to leave a legacy behind, something that reflects our personal values and honors others. A planned gift, sometimes called a “bequest” or willed gift, allows those making end-of-life decisions to create that legacy through giving.
