- Institutional Support
The Foundation made a grant of $20,000 to Sparrow Hospital in Lansing to facilitate their plans for a pediatric hospice program. The grant funded a pilot study for a program that has yet to be implemented but which we hope will eventually lead to a full pediatric hospice facility.
Hospice of Michigan
Following an initial grant of $10,000, the Foundation now maintains Hospice of Michigan's "Quality of Life" fund for east Michigan which is operated under their Pediatric Early Care program (PEC). This program fills the gaps of many hospital based programs and provides much needed home care as well as support for bereaved families. The fund, designed to help families in need, matches a similar fund already established for the west of the state.
