Iowa Care Community manages fundraising and development for Iowa City Hospice and VNA of Johnson County. Each year we raise money to support vital clinical programs and services. Thanks to the exceptional generosity of our donors, we are able to provide hospice care without regard for a patient’s ability to pay. We can offer bereavement counseling, music therapy, utility bill assistance, and other services not covered by insurance. And we can work to develop new programs to better serve our community.
Iowa Care Community, Iowa City Hospice, and VNA of Johnson County are all 501(c)(3) non-profit entities, so donations to any or all are tax deductible as allowed by law.
It’s easy to support our efforts!
