CHA Foundation assists hospice patients and their families
during the difficulties of terminal illness by making financial
grants for services and products not covered by Medicare,
Medicaid, or private insurance. We:
Help patients live more comfortably, access
quality care, strengthen involvement with loved
ones and keep their dignity.
Help caregivers, health professionals and the
public better understand the role of hospice.
Recognize and thank volunteers for their many
hours of unselfish service.
Grant guidelines are in our Policies and Procedures Manual.
Grants are provided without regard to age, race, color, gender,
national origin, disability, religion or sexual orientation.
Grants are made in the following categories:
We have helped patients pay for utility bills, medications,
mortgage payments, electric heaters, wheelchair ramps.
personal grooming items, and home fumigation.
We have helped families pay for temporary caregivers, travel expenses to visit patients, auto
repairs, utilities, and mortgage payments.
We have helped fund health fairs to recruit hospice volunteers and workshops to inform health
care professionals, volunteers and the public.
We have helped fund attendance of volunteers at workshops, seminars, conferences,and helped
purchase educational materials.
