The Mission of HCI Foundation:
Assuring access to quality of life at the end of life through dedicated stewardship and cultivation of community gifts.
We thank the individuals, corporations and organizations whose gifts last year enabled the HCI Foundation (formerly known as Hospice of Central Iowa Foundation) to provide more than $540,000 in financial assistance to patients and families in hospice care. By supporting HCI Care Services through HCI Foundation, you can help ensure peace of mind for patients and families who are on the end-of-life journey.
HCI Foundation was established in 1986 to support HCI Care Services. It does so by cultivating, soliciting, managing and providing funds to maintain, improve and advance services to our community. Part of the mission of HCI Foundation is to practice sound stewardship in its administration of community resources entrusted to its care on behalf of HCI Care Services.
We fund quality of life needs for families in need, wish fulfillment for patients, staff education and provides for the equipment and capital needs of the Kavanagh Houses and all HCI Care Services locations.
