Why become a member of Hospice Women of Philanthropy?

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.

The mission of the Hospice Women of Philanthropy is to encourage the human spirit by providing patients, families and grieving hearts with support, compassion and hope through membership gifts that directly support programs and services with limited or no funding sources.

Any woman in the Tampa Bay area is welcome and encouraged to become a member of the Hospice Women of Philanthropy. Members are required to make an annual contribution of $500 to LifePath Hospice by December 31 of each year. Gifts may be paid by cash, check or credit card.

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.

Members vote on which projects they wish to be funded at the Annual Meeting after reviewing proposals submitted by LifePath Hospice team members.

In addition to the annual meeting, which is held every January, there are several other membership events throughout the year, including:

  • Spring Soiree
  • Birthday and New Member Celebrations
  • Hope Tours
  • Camp Circle of Love Send-off
  • Jean’s Supper Club
  • Fashion Fun and Friendship
  • Flavors of the Holidays
