Why Give?

Why Give?

Give because you want everyone to have access to YoloCares’ compassionate world-class care in the final months or years of life.

YoloCares hospice patients and families never see a bill for anything. Not ever. The same holds true for our adult and pediatric bereavement programs.

YoloCares is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) health care agency that serves the entire community. We rely on donations like yours to bring comfort and dignity to people facing serious and life-limiting illnesses. This includes people who don’t have health insurance, who are too young for Medicare and those who have spent their savings on expensive medical treatment—and have no money left for end-of-life care.

Memorial Gifts

Donate in honor or memory of a loved one, either online with a credit card or by sending a check.

Planned Gifts

Create a personal legacy of care by earmarking funds for YoloCares during your estate planning process.

Gwendolyn Kaltoft Fund

Help support final wishes or special needs of patients at the end of life. Many times these funds are used to help patients with limited financial resources to reconnect with distant family members, take short meaningful trips, or cover the cost of therapies not covered by Medicare or insurance.


YoloCares is pleased to received charitable donations of stocks and bonds. Please contact Louise Joyce, director of community development to learn more.
