Prince Frederick, MD – Calvert Hospice was the grateful recipient of a $1,000 grant from the Chaney Impact Fund, managed by the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County. We truly appreciate the grant, which will be used to help offset costs at the Burnett Calvert Hospice House.
Contributions and grants such as this one are critical to our efforts to operate and maintain our six-bed hospice residence. In addition to keeping up with the overall expenses of managing this 15,000 square foot facility, we are also providing financial assistance to those patients who cannot afford to pay for their room and board.
Last year 45% of the residents at the Hospice House paid reduced fees; some were only able to pay as little as a few dollars per day. As of the end of July of this year, this assistance has cost the organization $62,920. Yet we will remain true to our promise that no one will ever be turned away because of their inability to pay.
