Why We Give
In early September we received word of an astonishing $1.5 million planned gift from the estate of Randi Veie Rosvoll. To put this in perspective, most of the planned gifts we receive are the result of a longstanding relationship between the donor and Visiting Nurse following cultivation and consultation over a period of time. However, this gift, planned years ago, was given to Visiting Nurse as a complete surprise by Dr. Rosvoll. Read More
The third planned gift received by Visiting Nurse came from the estate of Mr. O.W. Hogan, Jr. Known as "W" by many of his relatives and as "Hoag" by most of his friends, he was a man who lived without an ego, possessed a great sense of humor, and was widely regarded as considerate, generous and kind. Born in Choufrant, Louisiana in 1915, he graduated from Louisiana Tech in 1937 and served in the Navy as a supply officer in the South Pacific during World War II. Read More

That's what happened to John McCarty when his wife Margaret contracted Alzheimer's in the late 1980s. Read More
In the summer of 2012, Visiting Nurse was delighted to receive a $500,000 bequest from the estate of the late Mrs. Elkin Goddard Alston as a cornerstone gift for the new Preservation Fund, which will support ongoing maintenance and capital improvements for the Hospice Atlanta Center. "A gift like Mrs. Alston's is very encouraging," says Lisa Robinson, Vice President of Advancement. Read More
