The Hospice Support Fund, located in Merrifield, Virginia, is currently soliciting in our area. The solicitation is titled, “Annual Fund Drive Voluntary Reply Form.” and has recently been received in Hope, Edinburgh and Columbus.
Our Hospice of South Central Indiana is not affiliated and does not receive funds from The Hospice Support Fund (HSF). Communities in the area should be aware of this potentially confusing mailing that is currently reaching area households.
Solicitations sent by Our Hospice of South Central Indiana clearly indicate they are from Our Hospice and display the logo and local contact information. As a not-for-profit hospice, Our Hospice relies on generous donors for support to benefit patients and families in the 16 county service area.
Laura Leonard, President, commented, “As a not-for-profit hospice, fundraising is critical to meeting the needs of our patients and families and our fundraising appeals will be clearly branded with the Our Hospice logo and will include a local contact number.” We want to avoid confusion with our community members as we are grateful for all the gifts we receive.”
