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.
