About the Campaign

“A residential hospice is an end-of-life care option we really need in the Kingston area for the benefit of our entire community. We must not lose this opportunity to provide comfort, and compassion for people with a life threatening illness and their families.”
– David H. Bonham (1932-2016), Honorary Chair, Hospice Kingston Board of Directors

Board Chair Message

Hospice Kingston was established in 1985 with the dream of establishing a residential hospice. Hospice Kingston, its staff , volunteers and Board of Directors, have worked tirelessly to ensure that those who are dying and their families receive the best care in an environment that is as homelike and accommodating to their needs as possible. We thank all of those who laid the foundations, pursued the opportunities, and developed the partnerships needed to make the dream of building a residential hospice a reality. We are ready; The Time Is Now for a courageous investment in end-of-life care. The Hospice Board is dedicated to building a new home while upholding the values that have shaped the organization, and sustained the essential programs and services that have made us valuable contributors to our community.

Campaign Cabinet Chair Message

My mother was diagnosed with cancer in 2004 and when treatment was no longer viable she told us her wish was to die at home. As her illness became more severe it was clear that wasn’t going to be possible. The hospital was the only option.

A residential hospice would have taken the stress out of meeting Mom’s physical needs so my family could have focused on her emotional needs—doing the things we were good at: talking to her, sharing stories, celebrating the life and the memories we shared together.

The Time Is Now to build a residential hospice in Kingston. Join me and give generously to build a new home with a human touch for the living and the dying in our community.
