Our Campaign Storyends 27 Aug 2017, 11:59 PM
Dover Park Hospice was founded in 1992 as a secular, non-profit organisation to meet the growing need in Singapore for hospice care. Being the first purpose-built hospice in Singapore, we managed our first patient in 1995 and have been creating moments that matter for 25 years. We have brought care and comfort to more than 11,000 terminally-ill patients
The need to enhance our services and improvements in quality care for patients and families means that our operating expenditure for FY2017/18 is projected to increase to about $14.5 million. To achieve this, we rely on kind donations to allow us to continue caring for the terminally-ill, and to train and educate the next generation of caregivers.
Our signature fundraising event for this year will be the Sunflower Ball, through which we are hoping to raise over $1 million. In celebration of our 25th Anniversary, the theme this year looks toward the future - A Sterling Affair. Using a central theme of shiny sterling silver, the event transports all guests into a futuristic space filled with delightful surprises.
Come and join us in the fun and dine on scrumptious food from The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore. Cap the evening off with exciting performances, which includes Dover Park Hospice GEMS Showchoir made up of volunteers, giving their time and lending their voices all in aid of this excellent cause.
Dover Park Hospice was founded in 1992 as a secular, nonprofit organisation to meet the growing need in Singapore for hospice care for terminally-ill patients. It is Singapore's first purpose-built hospice, designed to provide a serene environment close to nature.
Open to everyone regardless of age, race, religion or income level, Dover Park Hospice is dedicated to meeting the unique physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those who are nearing the end of life's journey. The goal is to enhance the living, comfort the dying and support the grieving with compassion and dignity.
To cover its operating expenditure which is estimated at $14.5 million per year, Dover Park Hospice relies a lot on fundraising activities and kind donations from generous well-wishers and corporations.
