Since its inception, the Hospice Care Foundation has raised and
dispersed funds to hospice and palliative providers throughout the
Missoula area. In 2005, the Board elected to focus HCF on a capital
fundraising campaign with the long term goal of providing a dedicated
hospice facility for Missoula. This campaign would ensure that HCF would
remain fiscally solvent and ensuring that funding would be available
for building the facility and conducting hospice and palliative care
In March 2010, local hospice care providers and community members
were surveyed, government and health regulations reviewed, and cost
projections updated. This research indicated that while a hospice
facility was desired by the community, support in the form of grants,
volunteer support, and community education programs were priorities. New
programs and projects that could fulfill these needs were identified
including a Community Education Campaign, which began in March 2011, and
reinstatement of the Granting Program which supports hospice and
palliative care providers. The Residential Hospice House Project remains
viable but is a lesser priority for HCF at this time.
In 2015, after receiving feedback from the community, HCF implemented
its Assistance to Individuals program to provide assistance directly to
hospice patients allowing HCF to provide priority services and
community support in a thoughtful and dynamic manner. At this time, HCF
acts as a resource for community members, funds organizations on a
monthly and annual basis depending on grant type and funds hospice
patients and their families on an ongoing basis.
