Provide Connection. Provide a donation. Provide hope.
Few things impact your well-being as connecting with those you love. The pandemic, however, has taken many of the important connections away from us. Families unable to host a funeral reception after the loss of a loved one; children who haven’t seen their grandparents in nearly two years and need comfort after the loss of a special person; individuals living with an advanced illness who are at too great a risk of catching COVID-19 to visit friends.
Hospice Calgary needs your support for our three centres of care – our areas of greatest need. We need your help to continue supporting our community through grief and loss.
How Your Giving Helps
Hospice Calgary is a not-for-profit organization and fundraising allows us to offer services for patients and clients facing advanced illness, end-of-life and death.

The Hospice Calgary mission is to help families and individuals achieve support, hope and well-being through compassionate end-of-life and bereavement care.
We couldn’t do this without the support of the community!
