Annual Giving

The "Doc" Annual Giving Circle

The "Doc" Annual Giving Circle is named after Doctor Carlton Cook.  Dr. Cook was not only a staple in our Lenawee County community for decades, but also an Emeritus Board Member for Hospice of Lenawee.  He was here at the beginning, understanding the importance of a form of care for dying patients that focuses on palliative measures rather than curative and is based on compassion for those at the end-of-life.  In February of 2019, Doc passed away suddenly at the age of 92.  Throughout his life, he served Our Mission faithfully, both through time & financial resources.  It is only appropriate that our Annual Giving Circle should be named after one who walked the walk and understood the concept that consistent giving secures an organization's future.

The "Doc" Circle is comprised of donors who make a giving commitment of three years or more at a specific financial level.  Along with this pledge, "Doc" Circle members will receive consistent communication, be recognized at an annual event and acknowledged in our annual report (if so desired).

The Frank & Shirley Dick Legacy Circle

Frank & Shirley Dick's love story is somewhat famous in Southeast Michigan and Northwest Ohio.  And, because of their commitment to doing good, we all seem to share in a piece of it!  The impact on our community by the Dicks is not just one of yesterday and today, but also for Hospice of Lenawee it is one of tomorrow.  In 2018, we created the Frank & Shirley Dick Legacy Circle.  It represents our future and is comprised of individuals who have either made a legacy gift commitment or from whom we have already received a legacy gift.

Leaving a Legacy does not need to be complicated.  If you are interested in having a conversation about being a member of our Legacy Circle, just give us a call at 517-263-2323 or send an email to our Director of Development at [email protected].   We are here to answer your questions.

In Memory of Committee Member, Keith Ludwig & Wife, Roberta Please listen...

The goal of our Planned Gifts Committee includes providing education to our community and financial professionals on planned giving through written materials and informative seminars.  The committee is comprised of local financial experts with a passion for the Hospice of Lenawee Mission.

Imagine a Mission that not only plans for its own future, but also for those it serves.  That is...
Hospice of Lenawee.  

During 2021, we met our goal to secure 21 Planned Gifts. We are grateful to Creek Enterprise for their help by providing a $21,000 match as an incentive. 

In 2022, we have a goal to secure 12 new Planned Gifts.

Please consider joining the Frank and Shirley Dick Legacy Circle through a commitment of a Planned Gift as we seek to secure our future.  Contact us at 517-263-2323 and ask for Heather Perez, the Director of Development for more information.
