honor roll of contributors
This honor roll recognizes the many individuals and organizations that supported Capital Hospice in 2006.
We are grateful to the people and groups listed here—individuals and families, Washington area businesses,
foundations, clubs, congregations and government agencies—as well as thousands of others who made heartfelt
donations of less than $500 in the past year and those who contributed through the United Way and Combined
Federal Campaign. On behalf of the patients and families we served in 2006, we offer our deepest gratitude.
