Founders Club Establishing a Model of Success for All Future Home Hospice Associations… “You can’t build a great building on a weak foundation. You must have a solid foundation if you’re going to have a strong superstructure.”

-Gordon B. Hinckley


The Challenge:  Most communities, while well intentioned, struggle to establish an organization (on their own) to deliver the end of life care friends, neighbors and co-workers need. 


The Solution:  Build a; not-for-profit, replicable, turnkey service, to provide a care and funding model to enable any community to deliver a hospice experience to anyone, in their home, at no cost to the patient or their family.


The Investment:  Increments of $100.00 to $50,000.00 leading to a campaign goal of $200,000.00


The Investors:  Key members of the business community who are deeply committed to supporting the basic fabric of our society, rooted in the tenant that death is a natural part of life.  These businesses are excited about being involved in and supporting pioneering / ground breaking work that plays a pivotal role in building, enriching and defining our nation.  Each will see how equipping the communities, in which their employees and customers work and live, with the tools to support each other at end of life; actually improves quality of life.

Five Reasons Why We are Building Community Hospice One Terminal Diagnosis at a Time and why should you want to help?


  • People are being diagnosed with a terminal illness every single day.  And while this may have yet to affect you (or those you love) it is happening all around us.  The sad reality is not everyone gets “cured” and as a result the words healing or hopes take on a much different meaning.

  • We don’t have enough places for people to die with peace, dignity, comfort and compassion.  And those places cost millions to build in the first place.  

  • We believe that instead of trying to raise the almost five million dollars it costs to build a hospice building we could raise money to give people the same care in their home starting with the very first $700.00 raised, not after five years of running a building campaign and cutting a ribbon.

  • Our health care system is struggling and as much as we yell and scream and for as many reports that are written saying we need more palliative care – all the talking about needing it is not turning into an increase in care. 

  • Pat Riley in his book The Winner Within stated that “we must become an active participant in our own rescue” which means to Home Hospice Association that waiting for things to change is not an option.  It is our moral obligation to work to build hospice care in every community one terminal diagnosis at a time.
