Foundation Purpose

Whatcom Hospice Foundation is an independent charitable organization comprised of dedicated volunteers and knowledgeable staff who raise funds and build community awareness in support of Hospice services in Whatcom County. The Foundation owns and maintains the Whatcom Hospice Campus, including Whatcom County’s only residential hospice facility, Hospice House.

Letters From Hospice

We asked a Hospice chaplain, patient, family member, and a nurse to write a letter to someone about what they have learned through their hospice experience.

Partners In Care

Whatcom Hospice Foundation and PeaceHealth are committed to maintaining a strong collaborative partnership that results in top quality end of life care for every patient in need, regardless of ability to pay.

Light the Night Hospice Gala Auction

Saturday November 12, 2016

The 16th annual “Light the Night” Hospice Gala Auction held Saturday, November 12, 2016 at the Four Points by Sheraton hosted 350 guests and raised over $415,000 for Whatcom Hospice.

Presented by Whatcom Hospice Foundation, “Light the Night in the Serengeti” featured a safari theme—and the beat of African drums greeting guests certainly set the mood! The event included a silent auction, dessert dash, and live auction. A touching video sponsored by Peoples Bank was the focus of the “Fund-A-Need” portion of the auction, which raised nearly $142,000 in outright donations for the Hospice program. Mobile Bidding was included for a second time, allowing guests to bid on silent auction items prior to and during the auction using a cell phone, tablet, or computer.

Other sponsors of the event included CSS Integration & Communications, Inc.; Phillips 66 Ferndale Refinery; Trico Office Interiors; WECU—Whatcom Educational Credit Union; and Yorkston Oil Company.

If you are interested in sponsoring next year’s auction, please contact Shaaron Coleman at (360) 788-6850 or shcoleman@peacehealth.org.
