Raising Funds For And Awareness of Hospice Care


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 43 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.

Hospice Cup Shore Party

When: September 14th, 2024 from 5:30 – 8:30pm
Where: Horn Point Marina, 105 Eastern Avenue, Annapolis, MD 21403

Our Focus in 2023

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

In 2023, Hospice Cup 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.
