2019 Criteria for New, Not Previously Funded Organizations:
This year, priority consideration will be given to new applicant proposals that address delivery and/or expansion of end-of-life care and support services for patients and families that reside in South Monterey County.

Hospice Giving Foundation funds hospice and palliative care for adults and children as well as programs which advocate for system-wide improvements. Grants may be awarded for capacity building, direct patient care, outreach, and new programs designed to expand options for end-of-life care in the community.

- Grief counseling
- Family support, specific to end-of-life needs
- Educational programs focused on end-of-life planning and family preparation

Funding priority is given to projects and programs with clear goals and outcomes relevant to serving end-of-life patients, their families, and caregivers. Applicant organizations should demonstrate sound management and governance practices, active board support, qualified staff, and effective utilization of volunteer resources.

When evaluating proposals, the committee considers:

- Alignment with the mission, vision, and philosophy of Hospice Giving Foundation
