no Jewish family
is ever alone
when facing terminal illness.


We bring together the hospice, health care and social service communities to meet the medical, cultural and spiritual needs of you and your family.

Why Donate


whydonateThe Jewish Hospice and Chaplaincy Network is committed to ensuring no Jewish patient or family member is alone when facing a terminal illness. JHCN is equally committed to ensuring clients or family members never receive a bill for the services of our rabbis, social workers and volunteers. The agency is founded on a “goodwill” model — services are provided without charge, and 100 percent of our funding comes from donations and grants from individuals and foundations.


The generosity of donors, like you, enables our Jewish Hospice and Chaplaincy Network team to continue its service to our Jewish community.


Thank you for your generous donation and for being our partner in this very important mission.

  • Tribu​tes help support the ongoing work of JHCN and may be made in honor or memory of a loved one, or in appreciation of a caregiver or practice area of the agency — volunteers, or education, as examples. We also invite you to recognize our rabbis. Each day these very special men and women fulfill the mitzvah of Bikkur Cholim, visiting the sick, the frail and the dying. In the words of Rabbi  Irving Schnipper, “God put me on earth for this very reason.” Your contribution will be listed on our website under Tributes, and the loved one, director of the practice area you designate, or rabbi will receive notification of your gift.
  • Annual Campaign gifts are welcome year round. This past fall, we celebrated and remembered Shoah survivors and their caregivers.
  • The Grand Circle of Women was created to support educational programming for women by women on Jewish hospice issues. Informal gatherings are hosted by GCOW supporters throughout the year to discuss a wide range of end-of-life issues Topics include: caregiving, spiritual support, patient and family advocacy in medical decision-making, and ethics. Each spring, GCOW acknowledges the leadership contribution of a Jewish woman in our community who serves as a JHCN advocate.
  • Testamentary Gifts are long-lasting legacy gifts that help a donor or family leave an imprint on our work.
