HCI Foundation offers many opportunities to give in a manner that is meaningful for you:
Memorials: Honoring Memories

In Honor Of: Celebrating Someone Special

Special Gifts: Creating a Visual Memory
Donor Wall – Supporters giving $5,000 or more are recognized on the donor wall at our Bright Kavanagh House, 3000 Easton Boulevard in east Des Moines.
Memorial Brick – Gift values or combined memorials of $250 or more can personalize a special brick paver to line the landscaped walkways of the Kavanagh Houses.
Tree of Life – Gift values or combined memorials of $1,000 or more can provide a personalized leaf on the Tree of Life, a special indoor memorial tree found at each of the Kavanagh Houses. The leaf serves as a permanent honor or memorial for those that have been special in your life.
Direct mail letter campaigns are sent to our supporters four times a year. We refine our direct mail campaigns by selecting recipients from our database most likely to respond positively. The largest direct mail campaign is sent in November and December for year-end giving.
Matching Gifts: Maximizing Your Gift
Many companies offer a matching gift program, which can double the size of your donation to HCI Foundation. Check with your employer for details.
A legacy gift is a method of supporting non-profits and charities enabling philanthropic donors to make larger gifts than they could make from their income. A donor can use cash, appreciated securities/stock, real estate, partnership interests, personal property, life insurance, a retirement plan, etc. to make a planned gift. The benefits of funding a planned gift can make this type of charitable giving attractive to both the donor and HCI Care Services. Click here for more detailed information on legacy giving.
Individuals who leave a legacy gift to the HCI Foundation become part of the Caring Legacy. The Caring Legacy recognizes those who have support HCI Care Services in their wills or other estate gifts. Click here to learn more about Caring Legacy.
