How your donation can help
Longleaf Foundation, Inc.is a non-profit organization formed to support individuals and families of those individuals affected by a terminal illness the foundation raises funds through donations and fundraising.
Research demonstrates that individuals and families are typically negatively impacted as a result of an illness. Healthcare costs such as deductibles, copayments, transportation and medications are often times not covered benefits. Family income can be reduced due to the lack of income from the patient (if previously employed) and/or other family members that must take time away from employment to provide care for the family members, resulting in insufficient income to meet the needs of the household. The foundation provides financial support to individuals and families that apply and are approved by the Longleaf Foundation Board.
Bereavement is also an integral component, service and covered benefit of hospice. However, in addition to the bereavement activities provided by hospice, memorial services expenses are not covered, but are vitally important to the grieving process. Financial support for such services are provided by the foundation if an application is made and approved.
The hospice benefit is underutilized and often times those individuals who qualify are not aware of the palliative care benefits that allow patients to live comfortably with their illness. Longleaf Foundation, Inc. provides financial support for advocacy and community education regarding the hospice benefit.
