Exciting Progress on our Crossroads Campaign

Center for Hospice Care’s (CHC) comprehensive fundraising campaign Cornerstones for Living: The Crossroads Campaign, completed its third year in July and has just passed the 6-month mark of its public phase. As of the end of August 2017, contributions and pledges total approximately $8.9 million – which is tremendous progress toward our goal.

“We are grateful for the incredible generosity of the supporters in our community,” said Chris Taelman, chief development officer of the Hospice Foundation. “With construction costs on the rise, the we have an increased sense of urgency to break ground soon. As we close the gap needed to meet our initial campaign goal, we are focusing on underfunded campaign priorities, like the new Hospice House.”

“The aging of the baby boomer generation in the United States is having a direct impact on increased demand for hospice care, and the Crossroads Campaign is designed to put the infrastructure in place to meet steady and steep increases in demand in northern Indiana,” said CHC President/CEO Mark Murray. “We are passionate about our mission to improve the quality of living, and the success of this campaign is critical to our long-term efforts.”

Campaign Summary:

  • $10 million goal over 5 years with $8.9 million in donations and pledges to date.
