About the Hospice of the Northwest Foundation

Mission & Vision


The Hospice of the Northwest Foundation funds compassion and dignity every moment of life.


Our vision is to transform the way dying is perceived and experienced so that everyone coping with a life-limiting illness has access to hospice care; we envision a future where no one dies alone or in pain.
