Ways to Give
Donations to MaineHealth Care at Home help us provide care to those who do not have insurance or other resources to pay for care. By supporting our organization, donors also help us strengthen our mission and expand our services throughout Southern and mid coast Maine. Donors may designate their contributions to our home health program, hospice program, or one of our education funds in support of our staff. All gifts are tax exempt to the full extent allowed by law and will be acknowledged by a letter from our development office. Unless the donor wishes to remain anonymous, all contributions will be listed in our annual report.
