Swipe For a Cause Supports RI Hospice
Wednesday, September 04, 2013
The partnership brings together HHCRI’s expertise in the field of hospice care and Swipe for a Cause’s hospice fundraising mechanism, to pursue a shared mission of expanding hospice care in Newport and New England. Under the new partnership, Swipe for a Cause will donate 5 percent of its monthly gross revenues and 100 percent of its annual net profits to help HHCRI meet its mission. The groups’ partnership will generate additional resources and raise awareness for greater access to hospice and palliative care. It also will allow Swipe for a Cause to continue to explore the feasibility of establishing a hospice house on Aquidneck Island, which was their main goal when forming.
Home & Hospice Care of RI: "A national leader"
“HHCRI is a national leader when it comes to hospice and palliative care,” said Margaret Kinnecom, Owner/Partner at Swipe for a Cause. “This agreement means that, going forward the hospice needs of Newport, Rhode Island and beyond will have the support of the merchant community. Partnering with such a leader in hospice care should help us to get even more merchants behind supporting hospice through their processing.”
Based in Newport, Swipe for a Cause is one of RI’s leading social ventures. The organization does merchant processing and donates its profits to hospice care. HHCRI, one of the Top 100 hospice providers in the nation, the second oldest hospice in America, and Rhode Island’s largest hospice, is also the major teaching affiliate for hospice and palliative medicine of the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
“We are thrilled to announce this new partnership with Swipe for a Cause," said Diana Franchitto, President & CEO of HHCRI. "Both of our organizations share a deep commitment to caring for people who are seriously ill and need the kind of comprehensive hospice and palliative care that HHCRI can provide.”
“Swipe has developed a generous and unique way to focus the merchant community on hospice in a truly meaningful and important way,” she added. “We are extremely grateful to have them as a new partner.”
