On Saturday, June 22, 2019, at the official ribbon cutting for the new Rotary Hospice Stratford Perth, Andy Werner, Board Chair, announced that the campaign goal of $8.5 million had been met! This is an incredible achievement, and it happened because YOU cared. Thank you!
The Rotary Hospice is now officially open, and we have started to welcome residents into our home. Our team of staff, board members, and eager volunteers are excited to begin this next chapter in providing end-of-life care to our community.
Our fundraising efforts do not stop here! The Ministry of Health funds only a portion of the costs to operate the Rotary Hospice. Therefore, our hospice is responsible for raising an additional $700,000 annually to cover operational costs such as non-nursing staff, facility maintenance and supplies, resident meals, volunteer training and community outreach.
