2019 Annual Appeal
We are honored to be part of our patients’ stories. In almost 40 years of providing compassionate care,
we have served more than 38,000 patients, with 38,000 different stories. As a Center for Hospice Care supporter,
your part in these stories may be in a supporting role – but it is greatly appreciated by our patients, their loved ones and our staff.
Your donation to this year’s Annual Appeal will be used to provide compassionate care wherever our patients call home.
But what truly matters is the impact on the few or the one.
In July 2014 we began the Cornerstones for Living: The Crossroads Campaign with the lofty goal of raising $10 million
in capital, endowment and annual gifts. It was the most ambitious campaign we had undertaken in our history. In fact, it was
just the third formal major fundraising campaign Center for Hospice Care had undertaken since its formation in 1978.
We are pleased to announce that as we wrap up the campaign, we have raised $13.4 million in gifts and pledges
to meet the current and future needs for high-quality, patient-centered care in the communities we serve.
Thanks to many generous donors, the funds raised allow us to make significant strides in each of the three areas supported
by the campaign. Much of the infrastructure and resources we need to continue to deliver skilled hospice and palliative care
now and for future generations are in place.
Thank You for Your Support!
