Corporate Giving – Your Business or Corporation can Make a Difference!
There are several ways a corporation and its employees can support Hope Hospice:
Employee Giving Campaigns
Support from our corporate partners and their employees plays a vital role in sustaining our efforts to provide quality care and grief support at Hope Hospice. Through payroll deduction, employee giving campaigns offer participation year round rather than once annually during the season.
Many corporations conduct annual United Way campaigns to raise money for local charities. You and your fellow employees may elect to designate your donation to Hope Hospice. If you are interested in learning more about Hope Hospice, we will gladly send a representative to your facility. Please contact the Hope Hospice Development Director for more information.
In-Kind Goods and Services
In addition to donations and sponsorships, another important way individuals and local companies support Hope Hospice is through in-kind gifts and services that can make a patient’s day special or fund a new activity for grieving teens. Through donations of products, services, and time, there are countless opportunities to make a meaningful donation. Whether you are an attorney or an artist, florist or photographer, restaurateur or travel agent, your talents, tools, or treasures could help us in many ways. Contact the Hope Hospice Development Director for more information.
Examples of donations that have been very helpful in the past include:
- High-end auction items and travel packages
- Photography that can capture the spirit of our mission
- Video editing for our patient’s legacy biographies
- Celebrity contacts for fundraising and advocacy efforts
- Complimentary tickets for sporting events, museums, and movies
- Become a volunteer and give your time and talent. Explore volunteer opportunities.
Corporate Matching Campaigns
Some employers match charitable contributions made by their employees as a simple and easy way to demonstrate that community leadership is a company priority. Contact your Human Resources department or corporate foundation to see if your company has a matching donation policy. We are deeply grateful to those corporations that support Hope Hospice by matching their employee’s payroll deductions. Their generosity and social responsibility continues to help those we serve.
Companies that provide sponsorships for Hope Hospice events, such as The Hike for Hope, receive complimentary tickets and VIP status in the event program and publicity. For more information, call the Hope Hospice chief of Development at (925) 829-8770.
Hike for Hope

Bring family and friends to have fun in the great outdoors hiking to honor or remember a loved one or to just enjoy nature. Promote your company or corporation as an active community business in support of Hope Hospice by becoming an event sponsor as well.
