Ways to Give

Your Gift Matters

You have many options when choosing to give back to your community and we are grateful for your interest in Pathways. Your support helps us provide hospice, palliative care and grief and loss services for our communities in both Larimer and Weld Counties and no one is ever turned away for financial limitations. This support includes our inpatient care center, our pediatric hospice and palliative care programs, unique services to Veterans and much more. If you have any questions regarding stewardship of your gift, please contact Marsha Sesskin, Development Director, for more information.

Unrestricted giving allows Pathways to use these funds to be sensitive to our patients’ and families’ needs in the moment.

Thank you for supporting Pathways’ mission. Your gift is greatly appreciated.

Share Hope on Giving Tuesday

COVID-19 has made a big impact on all of us – especially our medical staff, patients and families.

Elderly individuals, those with underlying health issues and those with impaired immune systems are the most at-risk for COVID-19 and its complications. Pathways is committed to providing excellent care, resources and hope to our community during this critical time. To continue this important work, we need your help.  

Please make a donation to Pathways this Tuesday, May 5 during #GivingTuesdayNow. This day of global giving and unity was instituted (in addition to #GivingTuesday held each December) to respond to the unprecedented needs caused by COVID-19. By participating on this day, you will join a unique, global effort to support for our front-line workers and patients.

Your gift on Tuesday, May 5 will help us:

  • Ensure our field clinicians have the resources they need, including personal protection equipment (PPE)
  • Connect with patients through Telehealth services, providing crucial health information electronically when in-person contact is not possible
  • Purchase and provide iPads to be used by families to stay in touch with their loved ones, providing crucial emotional support

Together we can share hope.

Opportunities to give in many ways and for many causes.

Pediatric Hospice & Palliative Care:

Pathways is raising funds for a major expansion of their Pediatric Hospice and Palliative Care Program. Death at any age brings sorrow to loved ones left behind, and every end-of-life journey is unique and precious. It is not our place to rank losses in order of difficulty. That said, few would dispute that there is nothing more devastating than the death of a child. Support for this program will pay for extensive pediatric training for Pathways’ clinical staff, outreach to the Children’s Hospital and Pediatric practices, expanded grief and loss offerings, and pediatric medical equipment and supplies. It will also help pay for child-friendly furnishings that can be placed in a room at our Care Center where we admit a child for inpatient care. With your help, no family bracing itself for “the worst loss” will go without Pathways’ care and support, and our staff will have the competence and confidence they need to excel in this demanding work.  

If you are interested in giving to this needed community service, please contact Marsha Sesskin at marsha.sesskin@pathways-care.org.

Children's Healing Garden:

The Children’s Healing Garden is complete! This community garden offers interactive therapeutic opportunities for children to navigate the grieving process through healthy, nature-based methods. We are hard at work creating programs for the garden. If you would like to donate to the Children’s Healing Garden for projected maintenance, please contact Marsha Sesskin at marsha.sesskin@pathways-care.org.

Memorial Donations & Grateful Hearts:

Grateful Hearts:

Our Grateful Hearts program is a way for a family to acknowledge the special work of our Pathways Team. A family member often calls to tell us of the special care their loved ones and family received and they would like to acknowledge them. The employee(s) receive a special Grateful Heart pin and the family shares their story with our staff. It is extremely powerful and meaningful to the team as well as the entire staff.

Capital Campaign

Pathways is in the advanced planning stages to build a homelike Inpatient Care Center on their three-acre campus a few miles west of I-25 on 392. The Care Center will be centrally located in Fort Collins allowing for easy access from both Larimer and Weld county communities. 

This 12-bed, stand-alone facility will be designed and built to allow us to take care of many patients and families, and the Pathways Inpatient Care Center will be so much more than the hospital-based units the community has come to know. 

The Pathway Inpatient Care Center will provide the highest level of care in a tranquil, beautiful space intentionally built for this purpose. It will evoke images of an intimate Colorado mountain lodge where the outdoors and the indoors come together seamlessly with natural light, stone facades, water elements, and lush Rocky Mountain landscaping. 

Seal of Transparency

Pathways has earned the Gold Seal of Transparency from GuideStar in 2019.
