The future of The Hospice of East Texas is important to those who will need our care tomorrow.
Private donations and endowments are a significant part of a stable economic future for any nonprofit organization. For The Hospice of East Texas, they are important factors insuring that our organization will always be able to care for all who need us, regardless of uncertain economic environments and the constant shifts and changes in the healthcare system.
An independent non-profit entity whose sole mission is to support The Hospice of East Texas, The Hospice of East Texas Foundation is the vehicle through which The Hospice of East Texas raises much-needed private funds and manages long-term endowments in support of our extraordinary care.
The separation of these functions from the day-to-day operations of The Hospice of East Texas accomplishes several things. It adds the focused expertise in fundraising, stewardship and fiscal accountability of a separate, volunteer board of directors, chosen for their fiduciary expertise, their dedication to The Hospice of East Texas and their commitment to our community. It also allows the board of directors of The Hospice of East Texas and its staff leadership to concentrate on the excellence of the programs and clinical services provided by Hospice.
