Through regular and predictable donations, our GEM (Gives Every Month) sustaining donors are the pillars of Hospice SLO County’s impact, allowing our team to spend less time fundraising and more time helping people who are facing a life-limiting illness, end of life, or grief.

Giving monthly enables you to make an impact all year long! 

Benefits of Becoming a GEM:

  • No fuss donation!  Sign up once and you do not have to think about it again.
  • Monthly e-mail acknowledgments are sent which include stories about the work your donation is supporting. 
  • You will be emailed an end of the year donation summary for tax purposes.
  • As a thank you, all GEMS will receive a special quarterly email with a coupon from a supporting business in our community.
  • All GEMS will be invited to an annual recognition party.
  • You may cancel or change your donation amount at any time.
  • Your membership will support Hospice SLO County’s ability to recruit, train, supervise, and support volunteers.

Recently, one of our long-time GEMs switched from using her credit card for monthly gifts, to using her Required Minimum Distribution from her IRA. Once you are 72 years of age you must withdraw a required minimum distribution (RMD) from your employer-sponsored retirement plan or traditional IRA. Have you considered setting up monthly withdrawals using your RMD? Since Hospice SLO County is a non-profit 501(c)(3), any RMD donations received are tax free. 

There are many ways to give monthly:
