Donations can be made in memory or in honor of a loved one.
Gifts of Stock or Personal Property
By gifting appreciated securities or real estate, you may find that you will receive substantial tax savings. Please check with your advisors. Please contact Jim Jarocki, Director of Foundation Operations, at 847-556-1948, for donation information.
Gifts Through Your Will or Estate
People who make planned gifts through their wills or estates come from all walks of life, all age groups and all income levels. Some people making a planned gift choose to make the gift during their lifetime, while others choose to make the gift once they have passed away. Either way, gift planning plays an important role in ensuring that JourneyCare can always say yes to our patients and fulfill our commitment of never turning anyone away, regardless of their ability to pay for hospice, palliative or supportive services.
Just as no two people who create gifts are the same, there are many different types of planned gifts.
Company Matching Gifts
Many employers match contributions made by their employees. Check with your Human Resources office to obtain a form to accompany your gift.
Attend or Sponsor One of Our Events
Four main fundraising events, including our winter dance, summer gala, duck race and memorial golf tournament, are held annually in support of JourneyCare’s programs.
Host an Event
Independent fundraising or third-party events are developed and run by non-JourneyCare staff in support of JourneyCare programs. We welcome individuals, families, schools, businesses and civic organizations to host events, which can range from bake sales and school-sponsored drives to golf outings and 5K races. Contact Julie Linnekin at 224-770-2416.
We accept donations of goods and/or services to use in silent auctions, as raffle prizes at our events or as something that might be useful to our general operations such as “positivity packages” — toys and activities for our patients and families with younger children.
If you are personally involved with a family foundation and would like to make a gift, or if you know of another foundation or grant application that might be a good fit with one of our programs, call Julie Blanford, Director of Grants, at 224-770-2420.
