Legacy Society

Legacy Society

The UHR Legacy Society honors individuals who, by including Hospice in their estate plans, are helping to ensure the agency’s future. Planned giving options include: bequests, charitable trusts, gifts of appreciated stock and gifts of retirement funds or life insurance. Tax benefits for you or your estate can add further incentive for making a planned gift. Consult your attorney or financial planner (or contact Kathy Bookman, UHR Director of Development, at 845.634.4974) for more information.

How to Support Hospice Without Writing a Check

Did you know that planned giving can enable you to support your favorite charity without making a dent in your checking account? Do you think planned giving is just for the "rich guys?" Consider these simple planned giving techniques:

  • Make a gift of appreciated stock. Transfer stock to UHR and receive a tax deduction for the full market value of the stock.
  • Make UHR the owner or beneficiary (or contingent beneficiary) of a life insurance policy.
  • Designate UHR as the beneficiary of an IRA, 401(k) or other retirement plan.
  • Name Hospice in your will as a beneficiary of your estate. You can designate an amount, a percentage or a contingent amount for Hospice.

To Make a Bequest to UHR, the Following Language May Be Used:

I give and bequeath to United Hospice of Rockland, Inc., 11 Stokum Lane, New City, NY 10956 ____________ (state sum of dollars, indicate percentage of residual, or describe securities or property to be bequeathed) to be used for its general purposes (or indicate a specific purpose).

Our Federal Tax ID# is:  13-3425315.

Notify us of your plans, and we’ll honor you as a member of the UHR Legacy Society.
