Review for Our Community House Of Hope, Thousand Oaks, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Imagine facing your end-of-life alone or being buried in debt? Our Community House of Hope is a FREE community hospice resource that solves a significant problem in the local community.

The home is comfortable and care is provided by dedicated and compassionate caregivers. There is a beautify serenity garden and residents can enjoy their favorite meals, therapy dogs, and other things that help one cope with the inevitable outcome.

Key among the benefits is relieving your family of the financial burden that may come with end-of-life care. OCHH is 100% supported by donations and the activities of volunteers. Well worth considering for a donation or a legacy gift that will make a significant difference in someone's life.

I cannot think of any better gift than to provide someone facing difficult end-of-life circumstances with a little peace of mind.

Review for GuideStar, Williamsburg, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is always challenging to select charities worthy of your hard-earned money. Especially considering that many charities advertise heavily and appear to spend more money fundraising than they do on pursuing their stated mission.

I use GuideStar as a one-stop source to help weed out those charities whose expense to "doing good" ratio is out-of-whack with what I feel comfortable with. For larger donations, having easy access to a charity's IRS 990 forms gives me a way to see exactly where the money is going. It allows me to avoid giving to charities that simply collect money and provide a portion of the funds to other charities -- thus doubling up on administrative and fundraising expenses rather than being of benefit to the program's intended beneficiaries.

All-in-all, GuideStar is well worth having at hand when you are considering donating to ANY cause.
