Making a Commitment to Hospice
The Hospice Women of Philanthropy is a group of local women who participate in building and strengthening hospice-related programs through joint contributions. The group also provides women with opportunities for education in an effort to foster and develop women’s capacities for philanthropic leadership.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
– Margaret Mead

Hospice Women of Philanthropy Make a Difference
The annual contributions from all members of the Hospice Women of Philanthropy group are pooled together and used to support programs and services of LifePath Hospice that otherwise would not be possible. After reviewing proposals, members vote on one program or project to be funded. Click here to learn more about past projects. You can make the most of your commitment.
The Hospice Women of Philanthropy meet at the beginning of the new year to vote on projects to fund. In the fall, a luncheon is held highlighting an education program. Throughout the year, the Hospice Women of Philanthropy host several receptions to encourage and welcome new members.
