Across the world the majority of hospice care is charity funded, and the work we do is only possible because of the generous support of people like you. The Hospice is an important and vital part of the Sheffield community, without whose help we could not do what we do best – provide exceptional end of life care to those who need it.

No matter how large or small, your gift will help us to:

  • Provide a comforting and welcoming place for our guests and their families.
  • Deliver the best care through ongoing training and support for our staff.
  • Reach more members of our community who need our support through the development of courses and community support.
  • Provide essential equipment and facilities to deliver the best care we can, in the safest way possible.
  • Maintain our beautiful gardens and grounds which bring comfort and enjoyment to our guests, their families and our team. Our gardens will be open to families and loved ones of all those who have spent their last days at West Kentish Hospice.



Think about the type of gift you would like to leave to the West Kentish Hospice in your Will. There are different ways to give:


A Legacy Gift of money:

Also known as a pecuniary gift, this is a gift of a fixed amount.

A share of your estate:

Also known as a residual gift, this refers to a share of your estate. For example, a gift from an estate to the value of $50,000 would fund a registered nurse full time for six months.

A specific item of property or asset:

This refers to a gift specified in your Will. Examples include jewellery, artwork or shares. These items can be sold (or auctioned) by West Kentish Hospice to raise funds for vital care and equipment.

Tax Benefits/DGR

The Hospice Project cannot offer tax benefits on donations as the ATO only allows deductible gift recipient status to hospices once they are accepting clients. This is a major issue responsible in large part for the small number of hospices in Australia.
