Lead gift of $750,000 to enhance services and create more meaningful moments for the community

LEXINGTON, N.C. (May 16, 2017) – Last night, Hospice of Davidson County announced its More Meaningful Moments Comprehensive Campaign and lead gift at its annual board awards event.

Recognizing the growing needs for Davidson County residents over the next decade, the nonprofit officially launched its More Meaningful Moments Comprehensive Campaign Monday night. 

With a $2.3 million goal, the campaign will focus on four areas: enhance patient care with updates to the Hinkle Hospice House and technology upgrades, expand services to provide pediatric hospice care, provide a place for reflection with the addition of the serenity garden and ensure stable growth by building the agency’s reserve fund. 

Kicking off the campaign is a lead gift of $750,000 from Lexington residents and long-time Hospice of Davidson County supporters, Ian and Talmadge Silversides. 

“Hospice of Davidson County has cared for thousands in our community over the past three decades,” said Talmadge Silversides. “Their programming and services ensure a supported experience for countless individuals facing terminal illness and loss each year. We continue to support Hospice of Davidson County and its mission to provide expert physical, emotional, and spiritual care for our community.”

Additional gifts have been secured from: The Brown F. Finch Foundation, Doak Finch Foundation and the Thomas Austin Finch Foundation. Gifts have also been received from: Lauren’s Ladder Inc, Tom and Sandra Smith, Larry Swing, Witherspoon Rose Culture and Gordon and Nancy Wright, along with multiple anonymous donations totaling $354,000. The current campaign total has already reached $1.2 million. The total financial goal for the More Meaningful Moments campaign is $2.3 million. 

“We’re excited to officially launch our More Meaningful Moments campaign,” said Director of Community Relations Jan Knox. “It has been a decade since Hospice of Davidson County has been in a campaign to ask for support in expanding our services and resources for our community. Through this campaign, we will put the structure in place to meet the growing needs of our community.”

Additionally, Philip Young, immediate past chair of the Hospice of Davidson County Board of Directors, presented the agency’s annual board awards.

Bill and Sara DeLapp received the Founders Award for their more than 20 years of support, making significant contributions to the success and longevity of the agency. In addition, Parrott Insurance and Benefits, owned and operated by Mac and Beth Parrott, received the Community Partner Award for making significant contributions to support Hospice of Davidson County’s mission and helping sustain and grow service for more than 15 years.

In 2016, Hospice of Davidson County served more than 4,700 individuals in the Piedmont Triad with the agency’s various programs and services including providing $246,000 in charity care for patients in need of end-of-life care. All while eliminating the agency’s debt.
