Hospice Foundation of Cortland County

Mission Statement

The Hospice Foundation of Cortland County exists to provide comfort to people with life limiting illnesses, encouraging and supporting them and their families to live and experience each day fully.

The Hospice Foundation of Cortland County and Hospicare & Palliative Care Services created a partnership in 2014 to support and promote hospice services throughout Cortland County.  Although hospice services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance, such payments do not cover all that Hospicare provides to our community. For this reason, the Hospice Foundation of Cortland County and Hospicare appreciate the financial support of the community.

The Hospice Foundation of Cortland County is a 501(c)3 organization.

Foundation Events and Programs

The Hospice Foundation of Cortland County holds an annual Recognition Dinner to show appreciation to individuals and organizations in Cortland County who support the work of the Foundation. The Recognition Dinner is held in September.

The Hospice Foundation of Cortland County hosts the annual Light of My Life event each December in Homer, NY. Light of My Life features a memorial board displaying names of those being remembered by loved ones in the community. This is the Foundation’s largest fundraising campaign.

Foundation board members can also be found at meetings, community fairs and other events throughout Cortland County, promoting and talking about hospice and Hospicare.
