BridgingLife Make a Gift

Support quality end-of-life care

At BridgingLife, formerly Carroll Hospice, our goal is to provide quality end-of-life care and bereavement services to all those in need, regardless of their financial resources. The generosity and support of the community has allowed us to fill in the gaps and ensure that all of our patients receive the care they need. Each year, more than 20% of our operating budget is supported through private contributions.


Your gifts, no matter how big or small, help us provide numerous services and programs to patients and family members, including medical supplies, pharmaceuticals and spiritual and bereavement support.
