Our purpose


The Te Omanga Hospice Foundation is a registered charitable trust. It provides financial support to Te Omanga Hospice to help people live well with a terminal or life limiting illness. The hospice provides support and care for family and close friends during the patient’s illness, and in bereavement.

The Foundation is a separate registered charitable trust whose primary purpose is to provide sustainability of the hospice, particularly through adverse economic cycles and unexpected events.

All income is reserved to the Foundation’s endowment fund which is used to help bridge the gap between District Health Board funding and the actual cost of providing services to patients and their families.

By supporting the Te Omanga Hospice Foundation, you will make a lasting contribution to support and safeguard the continuation of our services to the people of Hutt Valley, free of charge.
