Events and Fundraising
Our hospice services are provided to anyone in our service area regardless of their ability to pay and, it is because of the generous support of community members that we are able to continue to provide these services.
As a service of St. Joseph Health System – Sonoma County, our programs raise necessary funds through events and donations for community services. These funds support compassionate, comprehensive medical hospice care for under insured patients nearing the end of life; spiritual and social services support for patients and family members; grief support services for children, teens and adults; training for caregiver and grief support volunteers, community education to provide awareness about end of life questions and concerns; and Latino patient care and grief support services.
