      Donate Here


      Here's an easy way to raise money for Hospice of the Rapidan. Just start using Yahoo! powered GoodSearch.com as your search engine and they'll donate about a penny to your favorite cause every time you do a search!

      In addition, do all of your shopping through their online shopping mall, GoodShop.com, where you can shop at more than 2,400 top online retailers and a percentage of your purchases will go to the charity or school of your choice. You pay the same price as you normally would, but a donation goes to your cause!

      You can also enroll in the GoodDining program. Eat at over 10,000 participating restaurants nationwide and you can earn up to 6% of every dollar spent on the meal as a donation for your charity or school.

      Here's the web site — http://www.goodsearch.com. You can also read about GoodSearch in the NY Times, Oprah Magazine, CNN, ABC News and the Wall Street Journal.

      Your contributions also enable us to:
      • Provide comprehensive grief support, none of the costs of which are covered by Medicare or insurance.  Compassionate care for surviving family members is central to our concept of comprehensive hospice care.

        Meet the individual needs of each patient and family
        at the time they need it most.  Medicare, which covers more than 85% of hospice patients, bases its payment rate on a minimum level of care.  Hospice of the Rapidan is committed to doing everything reasonable to meet the needs of our patients and their families, which often involves care beyond that contemplated by the Medicare and insurance formulas. 


      • Provide education about end-of-life issues and outreach programs through our Speakers Bureau, publications, workshops and training programs.


      Perhaps this is why so many families and loved ones of our patients ask what they can do to ensure this kind of care is always available when needed.

      Your kindness and consideration during our mother's final illness are very much appreciated.  There's no way I could have gotten through everything with my Mom at home without your help.  Thank you for helping our family give our mother the greatest gift of all - to end her days at home surrounded by her loving family.  Please accept the enclosed gift as a small token of our appreciation.


      Hospice of the Rapidan is pleased to notify a person or family of your gift if you wish.  Simply designate who you want to receive notification on the donation form and we'll take care of it for you.
