Capital Campaign and Supporter Engagement Coordinator

Capital Campaign and Supporter Engagement Coordinator

Our Organisation

Cranford Hospice is here to help people make the most of living and dying within a compassionate community. Our purpose is to provide the best possible palliative care, education, support, and advice to the people of Hawke’s Bay. We support people of all ages living with a life-limiting condition, and our services are provided at no cost to the patient or whānau. We have a team of around 75 paid employees and a volunteer army of around 400 across our Hastings base and the three retail charity shops.


Most recently, Cranford Hospice has embarked on a multi-million-dollar Capital Campaign to build a new, purpose-built home for Cranford so we can continue to support patients and their whānau as our community grows.
