2024 A Stellar Evening Under The Stars


Your Generosity is Our Lifeblood

At the Richard Murphy Hospice House, donations keep our mission alive. You can help us in our cause to bring care and comfort to the terminally ill by making a donation to our organization. We truly care about the well-being of the members of our community, and we ask for you assistance in providing them with the hospice care and services they deserve.

You can find ways to donate and support us on this page. We can also be supported by purchases on AmazonSmile, or direct donation via Venmo @Richard-Murphyhouse.

Corporate Giving

Corporations or businesses often establish a donated amount in the annual budget. This is a planned giving program, and is very beneficial to the foundation in that this money can be budgeted. Some corporations require that an annual application or letter of request be made. Others send the annual check, and acknowledgement is made by the foundation.

Individuals who work for companies should always inquire whether the company will match personal donations. Recently, we have seen more companies willing to match personal donations as an incentive for the employees to give.

Documentation required by companies is available upon request.
