COVID-19 Update

The generosity and willingness to give was very moving and we are truly grateful. Our needs do not come to a halt with the current pandemic and we will continue to accept any monetary donation you are able to give at this time. But, it would be our wish that you redirect any donation to organizations that are working to meet the immediate needs of families and individuals who have lost jobs, can not pay rent and mortgages or have empty pantries – such as any agencies through United Way of Washington Counties – East. There will be plenty of opportunity to give to Hope House in the future!

Financial Gifts

One of the best ways to support our work is by providing a financial gift. When you do, we are able to put your contribution towards the services and programs that our clients need the most. If you’re looking to make a monetary donation, whether you make a gift today or wish to make your gift over time, we are here to help and can do so by phone or email.

There are also options to fully maximize your generosity through employer-matching gifts and donor-advised funds, which combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes. If you’d like to leave a legacy, whether for yourself or a loved one, please consider making a contribution through gift planning or to our endowment fund.

Gift Planning

With thoughtful planning, you have the power to make a difference. There are many creative ways in which you can meet both your personal planning and charitable giving objectives. Every new planned gift strengthens Hope House’s ability to deliver health and wellness services for our residents who want and need access to the highest quality healthcare.

Donate Through Investment

Your gift will enable us to be the gateway to good health for so many who cannot afford it on their own. Through your investment, Hope House can be an innovative leader today and advance its mission to offer a welcoming healthcare home to those in need in our community. By working with you and your advisors, Hope House will ensure that your philanthropy not only maximizes the benefits of available tax incentives, but creates a lasting and impactful legacy.

Leave A Legacy

Your assets remain in your control during your lifetime and you can amend your gift to address any change in circumstances. Make gifts from a charitable reminder trust, retirement plan, or life insurance policy. Naming Hope House as the beneficiary of a trust, retirement plan or life insurance policy will reduce the size of your taxable estate and avoid income tax on those funds.

IRA Rollover Charitable Deduction

This is one of the most tax effective ways to make a long-term gift. Your donation can count against your minimum required distribution.

If you need to know more about donor-advised funds or planned giving options, we work closely with the professionals at The St Paul Foundation. For more information, we are happy to put a member of their Donor Services team in touch with you or feel free to visit

Donate To The Endowment Fund

Endowments exist in perpetuity and are a great way to honor the memory of a loved one or a living person. Your gift allows you to have a significant impact on Hope House’s future by helping to provide an ongoing income. An endowment fund has been established at the St Paul Foundation to benefit Hope House. Your gift to this endowment will be invested, and the income will provide Hope House with general operating support.

A planned gift to the fund will create a living legacy for you and your family. It will touch all of Hope House including critical life-sustaining services, quality of life programming and general operations.

Gifts of any amount make a difference and are welcome. We welcome the opportunity to work with you and your personal advisors to determine if one or more planned giving arrangements are appropriate for you.

Rest assured that all  inquiries and communications are held in strictest confidence. Contact Bill Tiedemann, Executive Director, at 651-351-0496 or
