2023/2024 Events and Sponsorship Opportunities for Stillwater Hospice

Since 1888, Stillwater Hospice (formerly Visiting Nurse) has served families with a full suite of compassion services. Our organization has grown because individuals understand the unique benefits we can provide to families when dealing with a life-limiting illness and they invest in our mission. Below are three ways you can impact future families by supporting Stillwater Hospice.

Water Lily Women's Luncheon

Our 3rd annual Water Lily Women’s Luncheon will be held on May 7, 2025 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Mirro Event and Conference Center. This all-women’s luncheon will help raise funding for and awareness of Stillwater Hospice’s palliative, hospice, and grief support programs while recognizing the important role that women play as caregivers, employees, and advocates for our organization.

Our program will focus on the faces and stages of caregiving. As women, we care for our children, parents, spouses, and friends, often failing to pour back into ourselves. Through this luncheon you will learn more about how Stillwater can support you when serious illness occurs, or when you suddenly lose a loved one and you don’t know where to turn.

We have several sponsorship levels for your consideration and would love an opportunity to meet with you, answer any questions you may have, and hear about your Stillwater Hospice story. Please join us in celebrating and recognizing, not just our women and caregivers, but YOUR female workforce. We hope you will partner with us through sponsorship support to recognize ALL the women in your life.

Thank you for your consideration of supporting this campaign and our mission programs which we could not provide without the support of businesses like yours. This campaign allows you to designate the program that receives your support. 



Please help us bridge the gap on the below program of your choosing:

Hospice Home

Hospice Home needs funds to provide 24 hour-a-day care to those in the greatest need.

You can help provide $500,000 of support needed to offer this one-of-a kind care. You can ensure that anyone needing this specialized care can receive it, regardless of their ability to pay.


Grief Support

Grief Support is offered at no charge to the clients but has a cost of $150 an hour.

Your support can help us close the annual expense of $390,000 needed to ensure that any adult needing grief support can have it.


Palliative Care

Our Palliative Care program provides consults in Berne, Marion and Fort Wayne to those with serious illness who are still seeking treatment.

Your sponsorship will enable us to provide $200,000 of support to this specialty program.

Holiday Memorial Service and Tree Lighting

This annual event will be held on Sunday, November 24, 2024. It will present an opportunity to honor a friend or memorialize a loved one with a light glowing brightly. The memorial service and lighting ceremony will include performances by the Fort Wayne Children’s Chamber Choir, a testimonial from an individual who has experienced our services and a moment of silence and reflection to remember those we have loved and lost. In order to ensure this event is successful and a low cost to participating families, we are seeking sponsorships.
