All NHDD donations are made through the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. You can make a secure, tax-deductible donation online through our PayPal donation page.

If you or your organization prefer to send a check, please send it to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, 53 State Street 19th floor, Boston, MA 02109 with "NHDD" in the memo line.

Your tax-deductible gift will help more people across the U.S. understand the value of advance healthcare planning--including advance directives. You will help ensure people have the information they need to prepare for a medical crisis.

If your organization would like more information about the benefits of the supporting National Healthcare Decisions Day, please send us a message.


National Healthcare Decisions Day exists to inspire, educate & empower the public & providers about the importance of advance care planning. National Healthcare Decisions Day is an initiative to encourage patients to express their wishes regarding healthcare and for providers and facilities to respect those wishes, whatever they may be.


NHDD raised funds through a virtual bake sale. Thank you so much to all of our donors who participated to help our mission!
