FUNDING REQUEST GUIDELINES
Visiting Nurses Foundation mission is to create funding for education and assistance of Home Health and Hospice patients and their families. In pursuit of this mission, the Foundation raises funds for distribution to home health and hospice care organizations (we do not give grants to individuals) to help cover the costs of equipment, programs and uncompensated care for patients. Visiting Nurses Foundation measures success by the ability to raise and effectively distribute these funds.
The majority of the Visiting Nurses Foundation income comes from the Foundation businesses. A portion of this income pays 100% of administrative expenses and the salaries of a minimal staff. The services of many hard working volunteers enables the remainder and 100% of all fundraisers, donations and memorials to go to benefit home health and hospice patients. The Foundation has a dedicated staff and active volunteer board, which work to increase funding to help meet a vital community need.
