Help Spread the Word about High Peaks Hospice and Palliative Care...
One of the most valuable assets that High Peaks Hospice and Palliative Care has is its ambassadors. What is an ambassador and who are they? They are hospice staff and volunteers. They are also your neighbors, families, friends and colleagues who spread the word about hospice care throughout the community. They are the ones, who when someone they know is struggling ask the question, "Have you considered hospice?" They tell of their hospice experience and encourage others to do the same. They volunteer to share their stories to civic organizations, churches as well as other gatherings through the speaker's bureau.
They are the ultimate voice of hospice in the community because their peers listen to them and heed what they say.
They are also enthusiastic participants in our Circle of Friends (COF). COF is a new and vital initiative of High Peaks Hospice and Palliative Care and was established to ensure the continued growth, stability, and future of hospice in this region and help address the growing needs for hospice care in our 4,600 square mile service area. It is an alliance of people who make a difference by their commitment to assure that hospice and palliative services are available now and into the future. The COF are dedicated to the financial security of the agency through their outreach and fundraising efforts. Involvement will allow us to better serve your neighbors, friends, and family.
There are a variety of ways that the individuals in the Circle of Friends can help. Become a friend by joining the Board of Directors Development Committee as the representative of one of our three service areas; become part of a larger fundraising committee in your area to be an integral part of developing and implementing comprehensive fundraising plans; assist with fundraising activity and events; or assist with major donor cultivation by sharing names of those you know who have the interest and means to make a difference, financially, introducing them to hospice staff and/or assisting in cultivation of major gifts.
If you have the interest, time and enthusiasm to really make a difference, to help us make our world better - become a friend in our circle. A friend of hospice is more than just a helper: it's an ally, an ambassador, an advocate, and a steadfast supporter. To that end, a friend spreads the word about the value of the work we do, and look for ways to engage more local citizens as benefactors. And they are a part of the innermost circle of High Peaks Hospice and Palliative Care. As such, they share our passion, our philosophy, our vision, and our mission by being the driving and supporting force behind our work.
If you are interested in becoming a friend or have any questions, please contact the Development Coordinator in the office nearest you. You truly can make a difference.
