Donors Enhance Quality of Life at the End-of-Life

Posted on December 9th, 2020

$501,003 Committed to HNW Donor Funded Programs and Services

Mount Vernon, WA – 12/04/2020 – At their November board meeting, the Trustees of the Hospice of the Northwest Foundation voted unanimously to approve program funding requests from Hospice of the Northwest totaling $501,003. The Hospice of the Northwest Foundation is able to fund these grants through the generous donations of individuals and businesses. Since 2001, the Foundation has worked with donors and community members to enhance the end-of-life care Hospice of the Northwest provides in Skagit, Island, San Juan and Snohomish Counties. Because of donors, programs like community bereavement, therapeutic massage and music, and direct patient assistance enhance quality of life at the end-of-life.

2021 funding will support uncompensated patient care, non-routine patient care, clinical education and training, integrative therapies like massage and music, bereavement services, outreach and education, volunteer programs, Veterans programs, and the purchase and maintenance of equipment and technology.

Most significantly, these funds will provide programs and additional care beyond what the agency is required to provide and reimbursed for through Medicare and other insurance.

Wendy Coates, Executive Director of the Foundation expressed gratitude to donors and supporters, assuring them that their gifts, “will ease pain, nurture compassion and dignity, touch hearts, and make a difference to thousands of people in the communities Hospice of the Northwest serves.”  She further expressed, “I am inspired by the generous support of our community as well as the commitment of the HNW Foundation Board.”

Community donors directly impact quality of life for our friends, neighbors, coworkers, and families. When you give, you become part of a mission of compassion and dignity like no other.
