Raising Funds For And Awareness of Hospice Care

Our MISSION

Hospice Cup, Inc is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to raising funds for and awareness of hospice care in our region.

Based out of Annapolis, MD, we host an annual sailing regatta each September to raise funds and awareness of participating local non-profit hospices. This year Hospice Cup celebrates 39 years of raising sails, funds, and awareness for hospice care. Participating hospices use funds raised through Hospice Cup to continue to offer quality end-of-life care to patients, their families, and friends.

Our Focus for 2020

In 2020, your support of Hospice is needed more than ever. Our Hospice partners are helping our communities navigate through the COVID- 19 crisis. Grief counseling has always been in the fabric of Hospice, and instrumental in helping so many families cope with the loss of a loved one and adapting to their new normal.

In addition, COVID-19 has made grief and loss support even more essential due to many in our community dying alone, and their loved ones are left behind to deal with the complex grief of not having the opportunity for traditional good-byes. The grief and loss care provided by the Bereavement Care teams at our participating hospices receive minimal reimbursement from insurance carriers. Often, the services are provided free-of-charge. As a result, donations from the community are critical to providing much-needed care.
 
For 2020, Hospice Cup has committed to raising funds to support those in our community who need the professional counseling services offered by our participating Hospices. Please join us in helping to provide this meaningful support to our neighbors and friends living with grief and loss.

Become a sponsor

Becoming a sponsor for the Hospice Cup Regatta helps us realize our mission of raising funds for and awareness of hospice care in our region. Hospice Cup, Inc. strives to provide sponsor benefits and packages that best fit your organization’s needs.

Sponsoring Hospice Cup puts your organization in front of thousands of people as our participating hospices cover Maryland, Virginia, and DC. Celebrating our 39th year, Hospice Cup has become known for its dedicated sailors and incredible shore party. Become a sponsor today!

While our shore party typically attracts about 500 guests from all over the region, your exposure extends to staff, caregivers, volunteers, and families of the hospices as well as sailors and the general public. Since 1982 Hospice Cup has raised over $8,000,000 for its participating hospices. With your help we can do more!
