Allina Health Hospice Foundation

The mission of the Allina Health Hospice Foundation is to serve patients and their families by raising funds for end-of-life care that provides peace, dignity and comfort.

Allina Health Hospice is the largest not-for-profit hospice in Minnesota, providing more than 133,000 visits a year to patients and family members living in the Twin Cities and 34 surrounding counties.

Your tax deductible gift, at any level, will be gratefully appreciated by the many people served.

Matching gift challenge: Support music therapy for hospice patients

The power of music is very real. It can change the way we think, feel, act and do – and nowhere is this more true than in hospice care.

Today, Allina Health Hospice music therapists take on twice the caseload as the industry standard but are able to serve only about 40 percent of hospice patients. Because music therapy services are not covered by insurance or the Medicare hospice benefit, we depend on the generosity of donors to help us meet this need. 

Help us say yes to every hospice patient who requests music therapy services. Thanks to a generous donor, donations to support music therapy up to $100,000 will be matched dollar for dollar. 

Please donate today.

Currently, Allina Health Hospice is able to provide music therapy services to about 40 percent of the patients it serves. That’s why the Allina Health Hospice Foundation is raising funds to support music therapy. Learn how your support can make a difference for our patients at the end of life.

The Dragonfly story

The dragonfly is a symbol of transformation. When a hospice patient is actively dying at J.A. Wedum Residential Hospice, a stained glass dragonfly ornament is hung on the patient’s door. This is done to let staff, volunteers, family and friends know that the patient is starting a new journey. Family members are grateful to be able to take home the beautiful stained glass ornament as a forever keepsake.
