About VITAS Community Connection
We were organized in 2010 to provide financial assistance to VITAS patients and families in need, and to support our community partners. Donations received from grateful families and friends in memory of their loved ones, and from donors who believe in hospice organizations, are used to provide support through VITAS Community Connection. VITAS is proud of the fact that every donated dollar does important work locally, and that their patients' memories maintain a "community connection."
VITAS Community Connection is a 501(c)3 charitable organization (Tax ID 27-4027765). All contributions are fully tax deductible as allowed by law. 100% of every donation goes to local patient needs or as grants donated to our local community partners, who also provide aid to many VITAS patients. Donations may assist with expenses like utilities and rent or provide airfare and other patient/family needs.
VITAS is the nation’s leading provider of hospice care with programs in 15 states – Alabama, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin – and the District of Columbia.
