Hospice Foundation of the Ozarks (HFO) awards grants to organizations that are involved in end-of-life services and education. Since its founding in 1997, HFO has awarded more than $1 million in grants to benefit communities in Southwest Missouri. The Foundation supports hospice, palliative care, advance directives, grief and bereavement services, educational programs, and other activities that nurture informed personal choices and respect for diverse cultural identities in the end of life experience.

We are seeking individuals to join our leadership team who share our goal to live in a community where individuals and families have access to education and services that ensure dignity at life’s end.
