Hospice Maui cares for Maui’s seriously ill residents in their homes or in our Hospice Maui Hale and provides, without charge to those without insurance or who cannot afford it, whatever is needed for that care. In addition, we do our job in a way that exceeds the highest standards of hospice care. Because of these two factors, our care costs more than the insurance coverage we receive. Thus it is through the generosity of our contributors that we are able to maintain our exceptional hospice care program, year in and year out. Throughout our history we have enjoyed tremendous community support and that is what helps us continue to meet the need for our services. We are a 501c(3) charitable organization, and your gifts are fully tax deductible as permitted by law.

“It is through the generosity of our community that we are able to maintain our exceptional hospice care program, year in and year out. Mahalo.”

hospice-0124-3195532398-O (800x532)A memorial gift is a touching tribute to friends and relatives who have died. These gifts are an important part of our ongoing support. As with regular contributions, we thank the donor, and we also send an acknowledgment of the gift to the family or friends of the person in whose name the gift is made. Some people also honor living persons with gifts to Hospice Maui in the person’s name. Hospice Maui is also a Maui United Way Agency, and a recipient of funds from the Pacific Area Combined Federal Campaign. Donations can be made and designated to Hospice Maui through both of these entities.
Hospice Maui Kokua Fund – Financial Support for Patient Needs

The Hospice Maui Kokua Fund supports Hospice Maui patients and families who require extra assistance not paid by their insurance. The fund focuses on covering room and board for patients staying in our Hospice Maui Hale or in Hale Makua. It also includes financial help for extra care-giving and specific needs in the patients’ homes.

Room and Board Support
Our new Hospice Maui Hale will be providing a beautiful place for our patients to spend their last days or weeks of life when they can’t be at home. At Hospice Maui Hale, patients will receive our specialized compassionate care to meet their medical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs. Most health insurances cover the cost of hospice care based on the patient being at home. Because of this, it usually does not cover the room and board costs of staying at Hospice Maui Hale, at Hale Makua, or at an assisted living facility. The Hospice Maui Kokua Fund helps those who can’t afford to be in those settings but need the specialized care provided there.

Caregiving
Hospice Maui is committed to serve our patients and families in the setting of their choice. Most patients prefer to receive hospice services at home. The reimbursement that we receive from insurers, including Medicare, covers visits by professional staff that can include: nurses, nurse aides, social workers, spiritual care counselors, physicians, and trained volunteers. Sometimes caregiving assistance is needed beyond what family members, friends, and hospice services can provide, and such extra help is not covered by insurance. If hiring a paid caregiver is more than they can afford, our Hospice Maui Kokua Fund can make a big difference in their lives.

Other Specific Needs
The Hospice Maui Kokua Fund also provides financial support for patient specific needs, such as offsetting the cost of higher electric bills due to an oxygen concentrator, or travel assistance for a family member to see the patient for one last time.

Donate Now

Hospice Maui’s Social Workers conduct an assessment for every patient. They are trained to carefully evaluate their situation, exploring opportunities, suggesting links to community resources and assist with caregiving and placement needs.

For the fiscal year starting July 1, 2017, our financial goal is to raise $175,000 for this fund. Contributors will be encouraged to do recurring online donations or to pledge multiple-year contributions.

Hospice Maui Establishes a Legacy Circle

Hospice Maui has recently established a Legacy Circle to honor those who have included our organization in their estate plan. Our Legacy Circle members consider a plan to leave a gift or bequest to Hospice Maui.  Naming Hospice Maui in your will can be a wonderful way to leave a legacy and will help to ensure access to compassionate hospice care for all residents in need. Including Hospice Maui in your will or estate plan can make a difference and does not require great wealth.
Legacy gifts include:
• Designation of a fixed amount through your Will or Trust
• Gift of Real Estate or a percentage of a property
• Beneficiary of a Savings Bond
• Beneficiary in an IRA, retirement plan

When you name Hospice Maui as a beneficiary of a gift in your trust or will, you can simply include the following language:

“A gift of (specified gift) will be made to Hospice Maui, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, tax ID 99-0215149.”

If you would like to ensure that your gift to Hospice Maui is used for a specific purpose, we are available to work with you on a Memorandum of Charitable Giving that will outline in writing your intent, and offers instructions as to how to apply your gift when it arrives. To learn more about leaving a legacy gift to Hospice Maui, please contact our Executive Director, Greg LaGoy or Advancement Director, Astrid Grupenhoff.

*If you have already included Hospice Maui in your will or estate plan, please contact us and let us know if we may include you in our Legacy Circle listings and recognition events.

Hospice Maui will accept vehicles that are clean, running and legal with a current Safety Inspection Sticker and Registration. Once the vehicle is sold, Hospice Maui will send the donor a letter stating the amount for which it was sold.
We will accept miscellaneous equipment and supplies such as wheelchairs, egg crates, shower chairs and benches, commodes, canes and walkers, etc.
We also accept unused items such as bed-liners, adult diapers and briefs, lotions and ointments, gauze, no-rinse shampoo, and other medical supplies for patient use. Donated equipment and supplies will help those in our community who are in need.
Please call Hospice Maui at 244-5555 if you have questions about donating items or you are in need of donated items. 
Thank you to everybody who made Hospice Maui’s vision to build a ‘Hale’ possible!

Hospice Maui Hale opened its doors in the beginning of December 2016. It is a place where patients in their last days or weeks of life receive our specialized care to meet their medical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs.
We are grateful to the many contributors, who have made this building project possible, including:
