Double Your Impact by Donating to Quality of Life Financial Assistance for Clients and Their Families’ $10,000 Matching Grant

Each year, HSB’s Quality of Life Financial Assistance helps low-income families in our Patient Care Services program struggling financially as they cope with a life-threatening illness. HSB’s critical Quality of Life Financial Assistance helps these families to cover basic but essential needs. This financial assistance truly helps make a difference for them. However, demand is outstripping HSB’s ability to help support these families financially. 

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, all donations up to $10,000 will be matched. To support this critical program, visit the donation page at Hospiceofsb.org and select Quality of Life Financial Assistance in the Designation Selection dropdown menu, or call (805) 563-8820.


To care for anyone experiencing the impact of serious illness or grieving the death of a loved one.

Hospice of Santa Barbara was the glue that held our family together. If there were any resources we needed like therapy or getting groceries, and even providing companionship, they were there. These things were essential to my father’s recovery.
