Mariposa House Hospice is a registered charity giving services to our residents and their families at no cost.  Our clinical services are partially funded by the Ministry of Health, which covers approximately 40% of our annual operating expenses.   Through our fundraising efforts and generous donations from individuals, businesses and organizations, we raise more than $800,000 per year to sustain our operations.   Your support and involvement is greatly appreciated!
