"The Elizabeth Hospice is honored by this generous gift of trust and investment in our organization's mission," said Jan Jones, president and CEO of The Elizabeth Hospice.  "The donation from the Courtenay C. and Lucy Patten Davis Foundation will directly impact The Elizabeth Hospice's profound mission in providing comprehensive services for adults and children impacted by illness and grief in our community."

The Elizabeth Hospice cares for nearly 500 adults and children each day throughout San Diego County, and has recently expanded its services to south Riverside County.

In the last year, its Center for Compassionate Care provided bereavement counseling to nearly 1,000 individuals and supported 150 children and teens through specialized grief programs, while an additional 3,500 individuals received bereavement phone calls or support materials after their loved one's passing.

The Courtenay C. and Lucy Patten Davis Foundation is a Wyoming Non-Profit Corporation that has supported numerous causes that focus on educational scholarships and healthcare, including the creation of a hospice care center in Wyoming. The Courtenay C. and Lucy Patten Davis Foundation designated the $1.2 million gift to The Elizabeth Hospice because of the organization's reputation as a respected healthcare leader and in providing exceptional hospice and palliative care services to adults and children living with a serious or life-limiting illness.
