Mission & Vision

As a not for profit charity organization, the specific mission of the Foundation is to provide funding to meet the special needs of individual dying patients and their families.

Please take just a moment to view the link below to share in a heartwarming story brought to us by WMBF News of Myrtle Beach South Carolina, an NBC affiliate.  This is a story of a sincere community outreach of love, care, and giving. It happened in Horry County, S.C. to a 97-year-old WWII veteran and retired police officer, Mr. John Moore.    Mr. Moore had given extensively and selflessly to his community and his country.  Now he was in need. Sadly, Mr. Moore’s wife passed away while on hospice service just over a week ago.  Thankfully, she died in his loving arms. Her goal was to be able to be a part of this event.  The social worker who took care of this family, Jennifer Grigsbee, reached out to the Foundation for End of Life Care for support. She asked if we would be a partial sponsor of this wonderful event in support of John; and, we were only too happy to help make his special day.


We are forever grateful to our donors who continue to help us meet the special needs of hospice patients and their families. Likewise, we are also grateful to all of the wonderful hospice caregivers across the country for the special work that they do.


Capital City Hospice has become one of the fastest-growing and successful hospice care companies in the Midwest. The leadership team believes in creating a family atmosphere and their mission is to provide the best end-of-life care in Central Ohio that their patients, and families deserve.  The caregivers and their management team serve hospice patients and their families in several counties in Central Ohio; and, they know, as we do, that the needs of the hospice patient and their family go beyond the medical care and attention  the patient receives.  They share in our mission to support hospice patients and their families with financial grants to help with the day-to-day monthly living expenses not covered under the Medicare benefit.

We at the Foundation are grateful to the entire team at Capital City Hospice www.capitalcityhospice.com  Queen City Hospice www.queencityhospice.com  and Day City Hospice www.daycityhospice.com  for their continued support of the Foundation for End of Life Care.
