Palliative Care and Philanthropy
Raising philanthropic dollars for a palliative care program may be necessary. Sources include:
- Individual donors
- Corporations and
Palliative care presents a compelling cause for philanthropists. Advocates for palliative care are promoting a cause that improves the lives of others and the need to provide for these services is real and easy to justify.
For palliative care programs housed in hospitals, health systems and in health care partners, identifying and following institutional policies with respect to fundraising outreach is extremely important. Established organizational Offices of Development can offer important useful resources such help with proposal writing, research on potential contributors and ongoing stewardship.
In-depth information on philanthropy and palliative care is provided at the CAPC Seminars and can be reviewed in the Philanthropy presentation.
