Supporting Visiting Nurse

As a not-for-profit agency, Visiting Nurse relies on the generosity of individuals like you to support programs not reimbursed by insurance, Medicare or Medicaid. These programs include: patient care for those without the ability to pay; music and massage therapy, community grief services and education programs. The agency is committed to providing the above services to our patients, families and our community who value the benefits of these programs.

The board and staff of Visiting Nurse are extremely grateful and humbled by the generosity of our patient families and supporters and are diligent stewards of these funds. Donations may be directed to a specific program if requested.

The Visiting Nurse Foundation works to raise funding and community awareness in support of Visiting Nurse’s services, programs and mission to provide compassionate care to alleviate suffering and ensure quality of life for those affected by serious illness. It is only with the support of our generous community, and individuals like you, that we can continue to help patients and their loved ones experience the best possible quality of life.

Visiting Nurse Foundation is a non-profit, supporting organization and is governed by a Board of Directors. The Foundation raises funds through annual appeals, memorial donations, planned giving commitment and special events held throughout the year.
