HFO- 2023 Philanthropic Foundation of the Year

A Hospice and Palliative Care Resource

Ensuring Dignity at Life’s End
 
 
 

Our Compassion is Contagious

Death and dying are a natural part of life. At Hospice Foundation of the Ozarks (HFO), we believe the provision of dignity at life’s end is important and valuable to everyone.

Since 1997, HFO has awarded grants to support programs that touch the lives of adults and children, as well as their caregivers and providers, so that those who are at end-of-life experience the care and compassion that characterizes the beginning of life.

Areas of Focus

Educating the public about end-of-life topics,
including the importance of advance planning for healthcare decisions.

  • We fund nonprofits offering diverse and innovative programs that improve and promote hospice and palliative care.
  • We support initiatives that enhance grief and bereavement services for families as well as hospice staff and medical providers.
  • We promote and support social model care homes for those who need a comforting place to spend their last days. 
  • We seek relationships with community partners who share our passion for end-of-life planning and education, quality hospice and palliative care services, and meaningful conversations about death and dying.
