The Cowan Foundation generously donates $150,000 to assist with the development of media-rich content for Hospice Palliative Care Ontario’s (HPCO) online e-learning tool for volunteer training. This commitment will help grow volunteer capacity in hospice palliative care across the province. 

“The numbers speak for themselves,” explained Michael Lough, Vice President, Specialty Programs, Frank Cowan Company. “Hospices in Ontario have approximately 13,500 trained volunteers, and every year 2,000 new volunteers are recruited and trained. Through our donation, HPCO is able to develop additional content so volunteers have the knowledge and skills to provide quality end-of-life care for their patients and family members.”
