Hospice Giving Foundation

Mission

Hospice Giving Foundation believes living well includes dying peacefully, in comfort, and with dignity. Advocating compassionate end-of-life care, we raise funds and award grants to strengthen local providers’ ability to serve our community. We promote advance planning so families can prepare for and access choices for end-of-life-care.

The Big Idea

So often people tell us stories of the amazing ‘angels’ that were part of their loved ones’ end-of-life experience. Think about the nurse or social worker whose skill and compassion helped you through your journey; the doctor who helped the family understand the serious diagnosis; the chaplain who offered comfort and solace, or the quiet volunteer who sat vigil at a loved ones’ bedside.

There is often, especially during a difficult time, a special person who gave you a smile and a kind word when you needed it most.

When you honor someone with a gift to the Champion of Care Fund, your gift supports a broad range of care for the youngest patient to the most senior; grief support and transportation; comfort care and spiritual care; as well as assisting to help meet families’ basic needs, such as groceries, utilities, rent, and funeral expenses.

It’s a big deal having an extra layer of support and a team approach to medical care when you need it most, at any age and at any stage in a serious illness.

Now there’s a special way to say thanks!

Hospice Giving Foundation is a cornerstone for Monterey County, supporting care providers that impact many people. When there is a need to fill, HGF steps in with funding, education, training and resources. HGF makes life transitions positive and touches many lives through their funding and support network.
