Mission Hospice needs you!

The Mission Hospice Auxiliary is a group of volunteers dedicated to raising funds for and increasing public awareness of the services provided by Mission Hospice & Home Care.

These committed women organize an annual fall gala, bridge tournament, and other special events that annually raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to support Mission Hospice patients.

In 2015, the Auxiliary was chosen by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Silicon Valley Chapter as the "Outstanding Philanthropic Organization" of the year.

We are more than 35 women strong and are now seeking new members to join us for this fun and rewarding work. Volunteers meet monthly in San Mateo and in smaller groups for event planning and other fundraising activities.

If you have - or are looking to gain - experience in event planning and fundraising, this is the group for you.

Mission Statement

Mission Hospice & Home Care is a nonprofit organization whose professional staff and well-trained volunteers are dedicated to providing the finest quality, compassionate care to those who are terminally ill or facing a life-limiting illness, and to supporting their families through illness and bereavement.

Description

It’s about life! Mission Hospice & Home Care helps patients live life to the fullest, offering medical, spiritual, emotional, and practical support to patients and familes throughout the end-of-life process.

We are San Mateo County's first hospice program, founded by volunteers in 1979. Since then, our staff and volunteers have cared for more than 10,000 patients and families throughout the San Mateo County area.

We are known for our personal, individualized palliative care - whether in patients’ homes, assisted living, board and care, or skilled nursing facilities. We see every day that our compassionate care gives patients and their loved ones the opportunity to cherish their time together.

This work would not be possible without volunteers, who are the heart and soul of our care. Our direct care volunteers offer important emotional and social support to our patients and their families, providing companionship, logistical assistance, and more. Our indirect care volunteers offer their time and talents in the office, assisting with mailings, special events and administrative tasks. The Mission Hospice Auxiliary is dedicated to raising funds and promoting awareness of the services provided by Mission Hospice & Home Care.
