Be aware of making private donations to a "non profit" agency such as this. On the fiancials it is listed that the board of directors work from 2-4 hours pre week. Please ask yourself how much they are paid to be a board member. And the salary listed for the executive director. Also remember that only those who make over $100.000 a year is required to be listed. Sometimes non profit is absolutely profit depending on who is making the profit form a organization such as this. Also it was my experience with this Hospice that there is no patient fund to help purchase items needed for patienst. I do succeed that a organization such as this is a neccesssity for many however be very casusious when donating money that you specifically earmark what you wish your donatiopn to be used for. it may go to increase a already over paid director's salary.
