Cranford Hospice Foundation

The Cranford Hospice Foundation is Cranford Hospice’s capital endowment trust, established to ensure our services are available for future generations.  The Foundation is also responsible for raising the funds for our New Hospice.

As our population grows and people continue to live longer, the demand for our palliative care services will also grow. To meet the needs of our communities into the future, our costs will only continue to increase.

The goal of the Foundation is to invest funds to produce an income to help run our day to day Hospice care services. This allows us to continue providing our services at no cost to patients for generations to come, reducing the strain on our fundraising programmes, which we rely on heavily.

The Foundation is a separate charitable trust (Registered Charity CC51431), and is managed by nominated Trustees.

The Trustees manage the Foundation funds wisely to ensure it delivers a steady income to assist the Hospice’s annual service costs. This allows continued provision and expansion of palliative care services for the long-term benefit of people living in Hawke’s Bay.

The Foundation is also leading the project to build our New Hospice in Chesterhope.
