Legacy of Hope Giving Program

We here at One Source – Empowering Caregivers (OSEC) are keenly aware that there are many amazing organizations in Nevada County that need financial support. So we thank you for considering supporting us.

Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter said: There are only four kinds of people in the world: those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers.

Meeting our aging population’s caregiving needs is rapidly approaching critical and epidemic levels—here and around the world. OSEC is addressing and filling this need in our county.

OSEC’s mission is to provide free respite, non-medical, companion care to caregivers and the loved ones they are caring for at home. We are committed to providing hope to, enhancing the quality of life of, and empowering Caregivers by getting to the heart of the matter at hand.

We need your help to ensure that we are able to sustain the support we offer to caregivers in our communities.

All contributions are received with our heartfelt thanks, and your generous gift will be conscientiously put to work to fulfill our mission.

Your generosity will be acknowledged on OSEC’s website and at our annual gala fundraiser.

There are many easy ways to support OSEC.

You can support us with a one-time or a recurring monthly donation.

 Make a Monthly Gift
Set up a payment plan for as little as $10 a month. Payments are processed by PayPal. You
may pay with a credit or debit card or have funds withdrawn from a bank account.

 Make a Tribute Gift
Honor a family member or friend with a one-time donation.

 Corporate Matching Gifts
If your place of employment has a matching gifts program, please contact the program’s
administrator to find out how to double your gift to us.


You can create a legacy of hope for caregivers in our community by naming OSEC in your will or trust.

Planned Giving
A direct gift in a will
Name OSEC as a beneficiary.

 A Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT)
Provides income for your heirs or yourself with the balance to OSEC.
(Must comply with IRS rules governing CRTs.)

 A gift of life insurance policy, pension, or IRA account
It’s easy to add OSEC as a beneficiary, while still leaving most of the benefits to your heirs.

 Appreciated Securities
Provide tax deduction to full extent of the law and avoid realizing gain.

 IRA Charitable Rollover
For individuals taking mandatory IRA distributions, a gift made directly from IRA to OSEC is excluded from income and counts toward mandatory distribution.
