Home » About the Foundation
Bethell Hospice Foundation exists to raise funds to ensure the ongoing operation of Bethell Hospice in our community. Unlike many other local charities, Bethell Hospice depends on the generosity of donors simply to remain in operation.
Government funding through the Ontario Ministry of Health covers only direct care medical staffing costs at Bethell Hospice. Every other cost – from food, medication and the resident hospice building itself to community bereavement and outreach programs – is funded directly from donations.
To keep the doors of Bethell Hospice open and all programs and services available at no cost to residents, community clients and their families, Bethell Hospice Foundation must raise at least $1,500,000 each year.
Every gift makes a meaningful difference directly impacts many lives, and brings comfort at a difficult time. Thousands of people have benefitted from Bethell Hospice community programs and residential hospice care.
