Themed Funds

A themed fund is established for the purpose of directing grants into a specific area of community need as determined by the Board or if preferred by the donor (typical existing examples of themes include Education and Home Hospice).

Applications to establish named or themed funds need to be approved by the Board and will need to meet all of the financial and other conditions that apply.

Home Hospice Fund

The EPCF maintains a Home Hospice sub-fund to support the operation of a palliative care service providing out of hours and weekend support to terminally ill patients, allowing them to remain in their own homes for their last few weeks.

The Eyre Peninsula Home Hospice Service is delivered via a partnership between the Foundation and Matthew Flinders Homes.

The Foundation manages and invests funds donated for the Home Hospice service, and MFH provide the “front line” services under the guidance of an oversight team of associated professionals, with representatives from the EPCF and MFH Boards.

The permanent service began in 2017, and was established to build on the experience of a trial service which ran in 2015 and 2016. People wishing to make use of it the service need to make contact through their GP.

Your donation can contribute to the growth of the Home Hospice fund and ensure that this important service is available for residents of the Eyre Peninsula
