Community Hospices of America Foundation, Inc.

How We Help
CHA Foundation assists hospice patients and their families during the difficulties of terminal illness by making grants for services and products not covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance. We:
 
Help patients live more comfortably, access quality
care, strengthen involvement with loved ones and
keep their dignity.

Help caregivers, health professionals and the public
better understand the role of hospice.

Recognize and thank volunteers for their many hours
of unselfish service.

Become a Member Agency
We invite hospice agencies throughout the United States to join with us in helping hospice patients and their families during the difficulties of terminal illness.

When you become a Member Agency, your Agency may apply to the Foundation for financial grants to provide services and products not covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance. At your request, we will provide you with an Immediate Use Fund you may use to secure personal items for patients without going through the grant process.
 
Only a Member Agency may apply for grants and have an Immediate Use Fund, according to the guidelines in our Policies and Procedures Manual.

How to Apply
Print and complete the one-page Member Agency Application Form and have your Agency Director sign and send it to the Foundation. Keep a copy for your records.

The Foundation Board of Directors will notify the Agency Director within thirty (30) days of receiving the application whether your Agency has been approved as a Member Agency.
