Mission Hospice Auxiliary

2016-17 Auxiliary OfficersThe Mission Hospice Auxiliary is dedicated to raising funds for Mission Hospice and to increasing public awareness of our services. Auxiliary volunteers organize an annual fall gala and bridge tournament, along with other special events, and also help with projects in the office. Each year, the Auxiliary raises hundreds of thousands of dollars to support Mission Hospice patients.

 

In November 2015, the Auxiliary was selected as the “Outstanding Philanthropic Organization” of the year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Silicon Valley Chapter, and honored at the 28th annual Silicon Valley Philanthropy Day.
