MANCHESTER & SOUTHERN NH, INC.
Chances are the VNA has been in your home or helped one of your neighbors, friends, or family members.
The Visiting Nurse Association of Manchester & Southern NH has had a long, dedicated and distinguished record of service to our community. From the 7th day of October, 1897, to the present, the VNA has been a shining light in addressing the needs of Greater Manchester, providing personal care and support for individuals and families, often in their most trying of times.
Every year the dedicated staff and volunteers of the VNA provide the quality home health, hospice, and community services that individuals rely on 365 days a year, 7 days a week.
At the VNA we have developed some simple programs that can benefit not only you and your loved ones, but can put your resources to work for the betterment of others today as well as for future generations.
Thoughtful financial and estate planning can ensure that your financial needs are met for a lifetime and that you have provided for your family in a way that you desire.
Additionally, a thorough plan will address your charitable desires and can provide opportunities for tax benefits – a win – win situation for everyone.
If you wish to remember the Visiting Nurse Association of Manchester & Southern NH in your will, we suggest the following wording: “I bequest to the Visiting Nurse Association of Southern NH Foundation, located at 1070 Holt Ave Suite 1400 Manchester NH 03103, ___ percentage of my estate or the sum of $___ to be used for general charitable purposes”.
As a not-for-profit charitable entity, the Visiting Nurse Association of Southern NH Foundation, seeks community support to cover the costs associated with meeting the healthcare and social needs of individuals who lack health insurance and to cover those costs that are not reimbursed through insurance. In-kind gifts, financial donations, and volunteerism enable the VNA to build and maintain the highest quality healthcare in a network that provides a continuum of care to our community at every age and stage of life.
For your thoughtful gifts, past and future, thank you for your support!

There are many ways to leave a lasting impact on a charitable organization. Planned gifts are the best means for ensuring that your charitable wishes are fulfilled while ensuring income and stability for you and your loved ones. Here are a few examples of the different options available to you:
Bequests - This is the simplest type of planned gift that requires only language in an individual’s will leaving cash, property or real estate to the Visiting Nurse Association of Southern NH Foundation. Bequests are revocable. If you have already established a provision in your will remembering the VNA, please notify us so we may invite you to join the VNA Legacy Society.
Trusts - These are a more sophisticated way of leaving a planned gift and can take on different forms (Charitable Remainder Unitrust (CRUT) or a Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust (CRAT)). Both types of Charitable Remainder Trusts provide for specific distributions for one or more beneficiaries for life with an irrevocable interest to be held for the benefit of a charitable organization.
Charitable Gift Annuities - These are contracts established between donors and the charity of their choice allowing the charity to enjoy the benefit of a more substantial gift while the donor receives a guaranteed payment each year from the charity. The American Council on Gift Annuities offers appropriate rates so charitable organizations are not competing based on rates offered to prospective donors.
Charitable Lead Trust - These are somewhat opposite of a Charitable Remainder trust in that the CLT is established with a distribution flowing to the charitable organization for a specified period of time. The remainder interest is retained by the donor and reverts to him or her or some other specified, non-charitable beneficiary.
Life Insurance - Donors may name a charity as the beneficiary of their policy. Accepting life insurance does come with risk if the policy is one that is not paid.
Retirement Plans -Donors may name a charity as the beneficiary in whole or in part or as a contingency beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan (IRA’s, 401k’s, 403b’s, and more).
This is not an all-inclusive lists of the ways in which planned gifts may be received by the Visiting Nurse Association, however, it does give some good examples of the options open to you in your planning.
