Thank you for supporting MNHPC!

This year marks the 40th anniversary of MNHPC's inception. This milestone is an opportunity to celebrate how far hospice and palliative care have come in Minnesota since 1980 and to look ahead at how our organization can continue to play a vital role in ensuring that all Minnesotans can receive the best possible care when they face a serious illness or the end of life.

This year has also presented our organization and its members with a unique set of challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic has required that we adapt how we support health care providers, patients, and families and how we can continue to educate about and advocate for hospice and palliative care in Minnesota.

Now more than ever MNHPC is committed to our mission: We strive to ensure that everyone has the help they need to live and die according to their wishes. But we need your help. Like many organizations, MNHPC is experiencing financial effects as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to adapt our work.

MNHPC depends on $90,000 a year in contributions from supporters to help us carry out our mission and support our members that are providing hospice and palliative care to all Minnesotans and others in communities that border Minnesota. Like most small non-profits we cannot hold our usual in person events for our supporters and contributors. Specifically we could not hold a major public event this last April and will not have any in person events for the rest of 2020. 

We are proud of MNHPC's 40 years as a leader in advocacy, education, and support of serious illness and end-of-life care in communities across our region. We are committed to continuing to do this work in the years to come, and with your support we will continue to thrive.
