Why Give? 

Our Hospice families often wonder, “How will we ever thank you?” and “How can we honor our loved one?” It’s easy, giving back honors your loved one and supports other families, which is all the thanks we need.

When you give to Hospice of Montezuma, you help us continue to enrich lives. We treat the whole person and their loved ones in ways that touch the human spirit- adding days to life and life to days.

Due to our long-standing commitment to provide services in spite of one’s ability to pay, Hospice of Montezuma depends upon donations, gifts and sponsorships to survive. As a non-profit organization, our services are NOT fully funded by Federal or State reimbursement programs, but they represent major components of the mission of the organization, so we appeal to the community to assist us in covering the shortages.

In recent years, Medicare funding – which represents about 85% of our revenue – has been reduced, making it difficult to continue services at the high level for which we are known. Our Bereavement program, that serves anyone who may be experiencing grief or loss throughout Montezuma and Dolores Counties, depends upon grants and donations to survive.
