Your Membership Matters

Becoming a member at Waipuna Hospice is important.

Over the years, Waipuna Hospice has continually grown and improved its services, so those with life-limiting illnesses get the best, timely, and personalised care that is available.

Here are three reasons why becoming a Waipuna Hospice member is important:

Membership fees when pooled together help us meet our yearly funding shortfall.

$20 dollars is all it takes for an individual to partner with us and become a member for 12 months ($30 for a couple). In today’s world, that’s an almost ridiculously low amount – $1.60 a month or forty cents a week. This may not sound like much, but when combined with others who believe in our mission of quality end of life for all, this small act can make a big difference!

As a member you get the opportunity to have a direct say in the direction Waipuna Hospice takes in the future.

At the Annual General Meeting (AGM), members vote on the appointment of new board members and important business decisions regarding the future of Waipuna Hospice. Becoming a member means a closer connection to Waipuna Hospice and a higher responsibility to the community it serves.

Becoming a member is a symbol of encouragement to everyone working at Waipuna Hospice.

Paying an annual membership fee sends a strong signal that you believe in Waipuna Hospice’s vision of “Quality end-of-life care for all”. It lets us know that you want to be informed and connected as possible as to what Waipuna Hospice is doing in the community to care for the dying and the bereaved.

We want to offer Waipuna Hospice members as many benefits as we can. Usually, this is in the form of advance notice of events and discounted tickets for events and merchandise. In the future, we hope to add even more benefits as a way of saying thank you for your support.

In short, becoming a member is a financial way of saying I want to help, I believe in what you are doing, and I want to partner with you for the next 12 months. If this sounds like you, please consider becoming a member today
