Every gift to Lightways matters. Whether large or small, your donation makes an impact on the patients, clients and families in our care.
As a nonprofit, community-based independent hospice, we seek donations for direct patient care that is not covered by any insurance. Your donation to the general fund supports:
- Uninsured or underinsured patients in need of hospice care. No one is turned away based on their inability to pay.
- Our complementary therapy program. This includes massage and music therapists.
- Child life specialists. These specially-trained therapists work with children experiencing a loss.
- Community grief support services. Counseling, programs and workshops are offered at no charge to anyone needing help.
Donations may be made by credit or debit card by clicking the button below.
Donations are also accepted by check. Please mail your gift to 250 Water Stone Circle, Joliet, IL 60431.
If your employer matches your charitable donations, please let us know here.
Doubling—or even tripling–your gift is a huge benefit to Lightways
Lightways is a tax-exempt, non-denominational charitable organization with a 501(c)(3) classification. (Tax ID number 36-3191281) Therefore, your gifts are tax-exempt to the fullest extent allowed by law.
