You can leave a lasting legacy to the Hospice with a gift to the Forever Foundation.
What is the Forever Foundation?
The Forever Foundation is Mary Potter Hospice’s capital endowment trust, established to ensure our services are available for future generations, and stay free of charge.
As our population grows and people continue to live longer, the demand for our specialist palliative care services will also grow. To meet the needs of our communities, our costs will only continue to increase, while funding provided by the Government will continue to decline.
The goal of the Forever Foundation is to raise over $20 million, to be invested to produce an income for the Hospice to help run our day to day palliative care services, and allow us to continue providing our services free of charge for generations to come, reducing the strain on our fundraising programmes, which we rely on heavily.
How the Forever Foundation is managed
The Forever Foundation is a separate charitable trust, Registered Charity CC33209. and is managed by nominated Trustees. The goal of the Forever Foundation is to raise over $20 million, to be invested solely to produce an on-going income for the Hospice to help run our day to day palliative care services, and allow us to continue providing our services free of charge for generations to come.
The Trustees manage the Forever Foundation funds wisely to ensure it delivers a steady income to assist the Hospice’s annual service costs. This allows continued provision and expansion of palliative care services for the long-term benefit of people living in Wellington, Porirua and Kapiti.
