FUNDING REQUEST GUIDELINES
The mission of the Foundation 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. We measure our success by our ability to raise and effectively distribute these funds.
The majority of the Visiting Nurse’s Foundation income comes from Foundation businesses. A portion of that 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 fund raisers, donations and memorials to go to benefit home health and hospice patients. The Foundation has a dedicated staff and active, all volunteer board, that works to increase funding to help meet a vital community need.
