Our Foundation

What is the Marlborough Hospice Foundation?
The Marlborough Hospice Foundation (the Foundation) exists to secure the future of Hospice Marlborough and associated palliative services in Marlborough.

How does the ‘Hospice Foundation’ help ‘Hospice Marlborough’?
The Foundation seeks donations for a capital fund, the income from which is applied to the operating costs and capital needs of the hospice. The Trust deed also allows for the future funding of alternative providers of palliative care in Marlborough or the direct funding of palliative care in the region.

Over time, many supporters will give money to both the Foundation and the Trust. Both organisations help the hospice maintain and develop long-term palliative care within the Marlborough community. Donations to the Foundation are invested in a long term capital fund, the interest from which can be used by the hospice for day to day operating expenses.

How to Help the Foundation Trust
This can be achieved through Donations, Sponsorships or Bequests. To find out how you can show your support, click here to visit our ‘How You Can Help’ page. To make a donation, click here to download the Hospice Foundation brochure.
