Charitable Trusts & Foundations

Thanks to the generosity of our Trust and Foundation funders, we have been able to significantly enhance the excellent end-of-life care provided for local people in our community living with a life limiting illness throughout the years.

Trusts and Foundations often choose to generously fund a specific project or a specific service for Overgate Hospice, or they can allow us to allocate grants to areas where we believe they will have the greatest impact.
