Take a few minutes to review the list of donor options and find the one that is just right for you. You might be able to help in ways you didn't think were possible.
Whenever you want to say "thank you", "congratulations", or "I'll never forget your kindness", your commemorative gift to Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation brings a double reward. Not only does it honor someone special, it also supports vital services provided by the Hospice.
Your commemorative gift is acknowledged with a letter sent to the person or family you designate at the time of the gift. You may choose to have your name included in the letter or you may remain anonymous. No dollar amount is ever disclosed. You of course will also get a letter thanking you for your kind gift.
To Remember... A commemorative gift is a very meaningful way to pay tribute to someone who has died. A gift may be made at the time of death or whenever you want to say, "they'll never be forgotten." Many people also choose to send a remembrance on the anniversary of a loved one's death.
To Honor... Commemorative gifts can also be made in honor of someone special; perhaps a physician, health care professional, or a favorite teacher or coach. Many people honor family members and friends on their birthdays, anniversaries or other special occasions by making a donation in their name.
Nathan Adelson Hospice Circles of Honor
Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation provides a wonderful opportunity for creating a lasting tribute to a beloved family member or friend. When the honoree's commemorative gift total reaches an established level, the family can choose to acknowledge that person with a Circle of Honor. The Circles of Honor are displayed in the lobby of the Nathan Adelson Hospice Swenson Street in-patient facility and are a series of engraved, circular brass plates. Circles of Honor are also a wonderful way to commemorate a special birthday, anniversary or to thank someone for their support and kindness. The donations that we receive in honor or memory of your loved one can be used toward the cost of a circle.
The family can choose one of the following sizes:
- Engraved 2.5" Circle of Honor: $1,000.00
- Engraved 3.5" Circle of Honor: $2,000.00
- Engraved 5.0" Circle of Honor: $3,000.00
- Engraved 6.0" Circle of Honor: $5,000.00
Nathan Adelson Hospice Walk of Memories
The Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation Walk of Memories is a lasting way to remember loved ones, honor friends, say thank you and celebrate life.

We invite you to purchase a personalized engraved brick to be placed within the hospice memorial walkway. Your brick will be inscribed with names or thoughts of your choice. With your purchase of a memorial brick, you are creating a permanent legacy that honors your special bond with those who are dear to you.
Each brick comes in the traditional "brick red" color and is available in two different sizes.
4" x 8" Memorial Brick: $250.00
Up to three lines of print, 20 characters per line including spaces and punctuation marks.
8" x 8" Memorial Paver: $500.00

Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation 'Gifts of Love' Butterfly Wall
Nathan Adelson Hospice staff and volunteers know how difficult it is to lose someone, but they also know that memories are a precious way to keep loved ones close to your heart. The Gifts of Love Butterfly wall is a display of engraved brass plates in the shape of butterflies. Each brass butterfly represents a gift in honor or memory of a loved one. These butterflies are displayed at our Nathan Adelson Hospice Buffalo Street in-patient facility.
The cost of each butterfly is $1,000.00 and the donations that we receive in honor or memory of your loved one can be used toward that cost.
Cash gifts are the most popular type of donation. They are effective immediately and easily distributed among current Nathan Adelson Hospice projects and programs. You may contribute by sending in a check, using your credit card, making an on-line donation or dropping by the Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation office, which is located at 4131 Swenson Street, Las Vegas Nevada.
In addition to giving to the hospice for general operations, you can also direct your gift to a specific hospice program.
Uncompensated Care Fund
When the doctor determines that a patient is ready for hospice care it may become an intense, difficult time for the whole family and the last thing we want is for patients and families to worry about the cost of services. Your special gift can be used to help cover the costs of patient care that are not reimbursed by private insurance or Medicare.
Each year the Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation provides over $1,000,000 a year in uncompensated care.
For the past 19 years Camp Mariposa has provided children ages 6 to 11 who have experienced the death of a family member or close friend the help they need to explore the natural, healthy process of grief. Camp Mariposa is a safe, comfortable and fun atmosphere that allows the campers to understand, through shared experiences, what it means to grieve and how to work through their feelings.
Your support of this program allows us to offer scholarships, ensuring that all children have the opportunity to participate in this wonderful program.
