What is VNA Health Care's greatest need?
VNA Health Care's greatest need is to ensure that unrestricted funding is available to address the needs of VNA Health Centers and VNA Home Based Services, and to ensure that affordable, accessible health care is available to all residents in the communities we serve. Your gift goes a long way to ensure that regardless of an individual's ability to pay, medical care is available to working families and that no individual who needs access to affordable health care is turned away.
Can I make a donation in honor or memory of someone?
Yes. If you are making a donation online, you can designate the gift in memory or to honor someone. You can also mail in your gift with a letter advising us that the gift is in memory or honor of someone. VNA Health Care will mail an acknowledgment letter to your designated honoree or family informing them of your donation (the amount of the gift is not included). You will also be sent an acknowledgement letter for your gift for income tax purposes.
