Who pays for Victoria Hospice care?

The Victoria Hospice Society is a not-for-profit agency with roughly 100 full and part-time staff and 400 volunteers and an annual budget of just over $7 million dollars.  We receive roughly half of our annual funding from the local health authority and half from the generous donations of the community.

Community donations support all Victoria Hospice services and programs that are not funded through the health care system – counselling, spiritual care, bereavement services, volunteer coordination and training, and a significant portion of our Palliative Response Team. The Victoria Hospice and Palliative Care Foundation is responsible for raising funds required to meet the expanding need for Victoria Hospice palliative care programs. You can help us by making a donation to support end-of-life care in our community.

Quality palliative and end-of-life care for all: Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for those facing life-limiting illness, death and bereavement through patient and family centred care, education, research and advocacy.
