San Diego County’s most experienced and largest hospice provider, The Elizabeth Hospice has touched the lives of more than 95,000 individuals in its 39-year history.
“This generous gift from The Ellen Browning Scripps Foundation makes it possible for individuals of all ages to receive comprehensive hospice care, regardless of their ability to pay,” said Jan Jones, President and CEO of The Elizabeth Hospice.
“We are pleased to invest in the hospice care services that The Elizabeth Hospice provides to the community. Their mission reflects Ms. Scripps’ belief that the most important and beautiful gift one human being can give to another is in some way, to make life better to live,” said Doug Dawson, Executive Director of The Ellen Browning Scripps Foundation.
Over the last 17 years, the Ellen Browning Scripps Foundation has donated $425,000 in support of the organization’s comprehensive programs, including family-centered community counseling services.
