Tulip Fund

Our son Matthew was such a special person. We felt that opening a Tulip Fund in his name was a perfect way to help keep his memory alive and, at the same time, support Dorothy House.

Many of us need something positive to focus on when we’re dealing with grief and loss after the death of a loved one. A Tulip Fund is a meaningful way to remember someone special and support the Hospice. Each Fund allows us to continue to provide care for our patients and their families.

Setting up a Fund is easy and anyone can do it. Once the Fund is live friends, relatives and colleagues can make single or regular donations, and even add sponsorship from fundraising activities. The Fund can grow from year to year as a lasting tribute for someone you loved.
