Making larger donations

Whether you are a Trust, grant making Foundation, or an Individual, by making a larger donation to Isabel Hospice you can be a part of shaping the future of Hospice care for the people living in Welwyn & Hatfield, Broxbourne and East Herts.

As a charity, we need to raise £17,000 each and every day to run our free services and continue to provide specialist palliative care out in our community. We only receive 22% of our funding from the NHS so we really rely on the generosity of the public, major donors and our Trust & Foundation supporters to help us carry on our work.

Larger donations can make a big difference to what we do. For instance £5,415 could run our In-patient Unit for a day; £20,958 could pay for 21 patients (and their families) to receive Hospice at Home care; or £38,000 could fund a Community Nurse Specialist for a whole year.

Major gifts and grants can also be used to help us to establish a project or launch an exciting new initiative. As an example, we are currently seeking funding for a number of activities:

  • Enhancing our Hospice at Home service – growing support for families at home, coping with complex end of life conditions
  • Providing support through the night – offering respite for carers and care for patients during the night to prevent unnecessary hospital admissions
  • Establishing a new Citizen’s Advice and Welfare Rights Service – to help families cope with the social and financial pressures of end of life care
  • Encouraging Advanced care planning – normalising end of life planning for everyone
  • Widening access to end of life care – for people with learning disabilities.

Donations from Individuals

Making a large monetary donation is a big decision and we would welcome the opportunity to show you first hand the impact your support could make.

Visits can be arranged at your convenience to discuss ways in which your gift might help. Whether it is a single large donation, support of a new project, or a pledge over a period of years, your gift can help us to make a difference.

If you would like to talk to someone about making a large donation, please contact David Badger, Director of Fundraising & Marketing on 01707 382500 or email david.badger@isabelhospice.org.uk

Donations from Trusts & Foundations

Isabel Hospice greatly relies on the support of Trusts and grant making Foundations to maintain and enrich our specialist end of life care services. Without this support we simply couldn’t continue our crucial work; helping the people of eastern Hertfordshire to live life to the full, and die with dignity in their place of choice knowing that their loves ones are supported.

If you are a Trust or Foundation and would like information about our current funding requirements or any aspect of our work, we’d love to hear from you.
