Woman caring for father at end of lifeYour support for the work of Caring House puts you at the forefront of helping to improve the end of life experience for our residents and families in the South Bay and beyond, allowing them to just be families.

We welcome support from individuals, couples, families, businesses, foundations and others – you are providing peace of mind to more families – and your generosity is recognized at specific donation levels. We call it Friends of Caring House. It’s our way of thanking you for providing peace, comfort, support and dignity to our residents and their families.

Caring House is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (EIN 20-2201206), and donations are deductible as charitable contributions.

New Tax Rules Foster Donations

The 2020 CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act and following laws encourage donations to charities, whether you itemize deductions or use the standard deduction. These rules remain in effect in 2021. If you have questions, please consult an experienced and capable tax advisor.

Caring House is eligible for donations under these rules. Please give now, if you are able. You’ll help improve the end-of-life experience for our residents and families in our community.
