Lighthouse of Hope Fund

Through the Lighthouse of Hope Fund, the National Hospice Foundation enhances the quality of life of adult hospice patients and their families so that their remaining time together can be meaningful and memorable. The Lighthouse of Hope Fund will support “experiences for the living” that help make a hospice patient’s last times with family and friends extra special. As NHF collects stories from hospices that use the Fund on behalf of their patients, we will share them here.

With a $500 registration fee—to help replenish the Fund—hospices will receive up to $1,500 in funding after an application and review process for each patient’s request.

By donating to this new program, donors have the opportunity to directly affect the lives of patients and families around the country.

The Fund is available to hospice patients who are being cared for by a member hospice of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.

2-Pager about the Fund

The Lighthouse of Hope Fund is a fund maintained and managed by the National Hospice Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that is part of a family of organizations housed in the National Center for Care at the End of Life. The seed funding came from the assets of the Lighthouse Foundation, which were generously designated NHF in mid-2012 when the parent hospice of the Lighthouse Foundation was purchased. Additional funds will be added to the Lighthouse of Hope Fund through annual fees of participating hospices, and the generous contributions of individuals, corporations and foundations.
