Support WSHPCO on #GivingTuesdayNow Throughout May!

Memorial Day 2020 is an appropriate time to support and recognize the important work of hospice and palliative care and honor and remember those who are still with us and those we have lost. Your contribution to WSHPCO will help you celebrate the lives of loved ones and help us meet the ongoing needs of our provider programs and the patients and families they serve throughout Washington state.

We hope to raise $5,000 between May 5, #GivingTuesdayNow, and Memorial Day, May 25. We will post the names of those honored and remembered on our Tributes page and send a note acknowledging your special gift to someone you specify below. Please scroll down the page to make your tax deductible contribution.

The Washington State Hospice & Palliative Care Organization is working hard to provide caring and thoughtful information about end of life care to the community and support our hospice and palliative care providers around the state as they continue to meet the needs of dying Washingtonians and their families and loved ones during this particularly challenging time.

We are identifying ways to address the PPE shortage, meet the changing IT needs our hospice and palliative care providers are facing, and educate our providers about the ever-changing regulatory updates so they are able to provide the best end of life care they can to our patients and families during this pandemic crisis.
