Hospice Giving Opportunities
Support the mission of the SECU Hospice House—a place of comfort and compassion at the end of life. Donate to the Johnston Health Foundation, and you’ll help patients get the care they need to live their final season of life with peace and dignity.
Discover why the families of Annie Laurie Lewis and Ann Nolan believe the SECU Hospice House was the best place for them to be at the end of life.
Eighty percent of people nearing the end of life are on Medicare, which does not cover hospice room and board. By donating to the Johnston Health Foundation Hospice Fund, you’ll help cover expenses for them and other patients with financial need. You’ll also contribute to:
- Essential equipment purchases
- Training to help staff and volunteers provide the best possible care
- Other necessities for patients
Without the Hospice Fund, the SECU Hospice House would not exist to serve your community in Johnston County.
Make a secure online donation and select the Hospice Fund as your recipient. You may choose to make your gift in honor or memory of a loved one.
Mail a Check
Write a check to the Johnston Health Foundation and write “Hospice Fund” in the memo line. Mail it to:
Johnston Health Foundation
PO Box 1376

Attn: Hospice Fund
To make your donation a tribute to someone, enclose a note stating “In Memory of (Name).” If you’d like an acknowledgment sent to the person’s loved ones, include their names, addresses, and phone numbers.
Leave a lasting legacy by purchasing a personally engraved brick to honor, thank, or remember someone special. We’ll place your brick at the location of your choice—the Memorial Garden or the Veterans Memorial at the SECU Hospice House.
You may order a brick online, or download, complete, and mail a brick order form [PDF]. Proceeds benefit the Hospice Capital Improvement Fund (building upgrades).
Hospice Volunteers Fund
Volunteers spend time with patients and families to make the SECU Hospice House feel welcoming. Your gift to the Hospice Volunteers Fund covers amenities that help create a homelike environment, such as:
- Meals in the family kitchen
- Music and books
- Toys for the children’s play area
To support this cause, write “Hospice Volunteers” on the memo line of your check to the Johnston Health Foundation.
Grateful Patient Program
Hospice staff cannot accept gifts from patients or families, but you can thank a special caregiver with a donation to the Grateful Patient Program. Write “GPP” and the caregiver’s or department’s name on your check to the Johnston Health Foundation.
Your honoree will receive a letter notifying them of your generosity. It will not state the amount of your gift.
