Giving To The Cause

The Dr. Daniel Jenkins Foundation, Inc was established in 2016 to honor the memory of one of the founders of Summit Hospice, Dr. Daniel Jenkins. His passion was the care of patients in hospice, and he spent over 26 years providing compassionate end of life care to his patients regardless of their economic or social status.

Dr. Jenkins taught the art of hospice care to countless medical students, nurses and residents over the last three decades. He believed that all patients should be eligible for the benefits of end of life care regardless of their ability to pay. In keeping with this ideal, the foundation was established to fund the needs of those patients requiring hospice care who are economically disadvantaged and to expand community education and awareness of hospice services, life enrichment philosophies, available services and resources.

The primary focus of the Dr. Daniel G. Jenkins Memorial Foundation is to raise funds primarily to support patients in need of hospice and life enrichment services. The main areas of this support will be:

  • To facilitate quality end of life care to hospice patients and their families.
  • To increase community awareness of hospice services and life enrichment philosophies, available services and resources.
  • To provide spiritual and educational support and activities for hospice services.

The corporation is committed to maintaining an active role of promoting the philosophy of hospice in the community.

Some of the ways the foundation helps hospice patients are through denture or eyeglass repair, haircuts for patients at home, assistance with utility payment, or even a plane ticket for out of town family.
