We are here to help providers, patients, and their families as they explore options for hospice and palliative care. For us, that means providing Grants to Organizations to hospice, palliative & bereavement care providers and Assistance to Individuals to hospice patients and their families throughout Western Montana.

In the last three years, HCF has awarded nearly $120,000 in Grants to Organizations and Assistance to Individuals. During that time HCF has been able to fund eleven organizations located throughout Western Montana with priority given to those located in Lake, Mineral, Missoula, and Sanders counties.

Hospice and palliative care providers and hospice patients and their families throughout Western Montana may be eligible to apply. To learn more about Hospice Care Foundation grants please follow the links below:

The Hospice Care Foundation is currently undergoing a strategic realignment of its Granting and Assistance programs and is not accepting applications for Grants to Organization nor Assistance to Individuals at this time.


We anticipate once more accepting applications for My Wishes and Individual and/or Family Financial Assistance July 1, 2019.

Grants to Organizations

Providers of hospice and palliative care work tirelessly to provide compassionate care through their everyday operations and special projects. Our grants help support these activities and recognize the hard work of some of Missoula’s best care providers.

Assistance to Individuals

Hospice and palliative care patients and their families in our community are sometimes faced with unique financial challenges relating to their care decisions. Our financial assistance for patients allows us to help with costs of care so the focus remains on the patient.

Thank You To…

Our granting is made possible by the many donors, sponsors, benefactors, and friends of HCF who have made contributions and enabled us to further our mission. Here are just a few of the many to whom we are infinitely grateful:
