The Hospice of East Texas CARE Fund
Since its inception The Hospice of East Texas has been committed to serve every patient and family who needs our extraordinary care, regardless of their financial circumstances or life’s situation. For more than thirty years, this commitment has defined our mission, and motivated our staff, volunteers and donors.
A new giving vehicle, The Hospice of East Texas CARE Fund, will enable Hospice of East Texas to fulfill that commitment, now and in the future. A specially designated fund at The Hospice of East Texas Foundation, the CARE Fund is a permanent endowment. Designed to grow over time, the fund will return its earnings each year to help cover the cost of hospice services for those patients who have no payor source for their care.
The Hospice of East Texas CARE Fund, created by the Board of Directors of The Hospice of East Texas Foundation, was seeded with the estate gifts of two extraordinary women, Trudy Richardson (upper) and Estha Nowlin (lower).
