Capital Business Solutions welcomes Good Samaritan Hospice in Roanoke, VA as a new Fundraising 50 (formerly Sage FR50) software client to its consulting practice.

Working with Executive Director Sue Ranson, Director of Development Cindy Hagerman, IT Director Jason Muncy and Kim Turner of Turner Fundraising and Associates, CBS helped setup and configure the software plus performed extensive conversion of their legacy systems data and several sessions of training for the staff.  The configuration included word merge, custom fields, security rights, campaigns, funds and appeals hierarchy design. Timing was critical for the implementation to allow for Turner Fundraising to help with the launch of a large Capital Campaign for the nonprofit. 

Who is Good Samaritan Hospice?

Good Samaritan Hospice

Good Samaritan Hospice teams work with existing physicians and nursing staff to care for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of both the patient and their family and loved ones. But their goal is unique compared to traditional restorative care. They focus on caring, rather than curing, and we do whatever it takes to help patients and loved ones face the journey ahead with clarity and dignity. Hospice services range from pain management to a host of alternative therapies, and these programs can be implemented wherever the patient is most comfortable: a private residence, nursing home, apartment, etc. While hospice is not a 24/7 service, Good Samaritan and most hospice programs are on-call around the clock should a need arise. Good Sam is a member of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, Virginia Association for Hospices & the Palliative Care Partnership of the Roanoke Valley.
