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.

Visiting Nurses Foundation is aware of the need for home health and hospice care, equipment and programs to support care has increased dramatically over the last several years. There has been an even greater increase in the number of patients who need and want the comfort and healing benefits of this care, but cannot afford it.  The Foundation is committed to help home health and hospice care providers in their efforts to serve residents in need of care, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay.
