The Heart of Hospice Foundation is devoted to assisting individuals in need facing the end of life. With your help, we can provide support through the following grant programs.
We strive to empower all individuals facing the end of life to focus on what matters most by providing financial support, fulfilling last wishes, and furthering the advancement of hospice and palliative care with industry research and community education. We hope these statistics from our impact in 2020 so far will help you understand the work we do each and every day.
Our Financial Assistance department provides aid not covered by the hospice benefit to individuals experiencing financial hardships due to an advanced-stage illness. These funds can be used for basic needs such as groceries and monthly bills, or to provide home modifications such as ramps or grab bars.
Our Last Wish department enables individuals facing the end of life to fulfill any of their biggest wishes, such as enjoying a special meal with a significant other, spending time in a recording studio, or visiting with a loved one who lives at a distance.
Our Education and Research department funds community education and research efforts that convey the importance of or advance access to hospice and palliative care. These efforts include a myriad of projects from public events that dispel common hospice myths to institutionally backed fellowships to train the next generation of hospice and palliative care physicians.
