Waipuna Hospice

Waipuna Hospice provides specialist hospice palliative care for patients living with a life-limiting illness, as well as support services for their families. Our services are provided seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

Waipuna Hospice is not funded by government. We need to raise $3.7 million in the coming financial year to meet the shortfall in our operating costs. We rely heavily on the support of our community to enable us to continue to provide our services and we are very grateful for Acorn's support! Acorn Foundation supports us through bequests made by generous donors.

Waipuna Hospice has recieved over $320,000 in (taggged) funding from the Acorn Foundation via the D&L Caird, M&L Bellerby, L&K Christie, K&R Hunt, J&P Laing, G&C Olsen, J Round, and R&E Sheppherd Funds.
