Jessica’s House Hospice believes that our donors are vital to us achieving our vision: “To provide compassionate, high-quality care for residents from the time of diagnosis through their palliative and end-of-life journey”. We commit to the following bill of rights that all donors will have the right:

  • To have access to the Hospice’s most recent financial statement.
  • To be assured their gifts will be used for the purpose for which they were given.
  • To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.
  • To be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect and confidentiality to the extent provided by the law.
  • To expect that all relationships with individuals representing JHH will be professional in nature.
  • To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees or hired solicitors.
