Patient Support Fund Benefit Auction
Mountain Hospice holds auctions every few months to benefit our Patient Support Fund. Our Patient Support Fund was put in place for patients who have little or no financial help from private insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, or any other institution. We hold these auctions as a fundraiser for the patient’s supplies, medications, and nursing care. No one is ever turned away from Mountain Hospice due to their inability to pay.
Mountain Hospice has a collection of donated items, as well as new and restocked items from various corporations. We purchase different items to give our auctions a variety of excitement. You never know what we will have in store!
Starting January 1, 2019, we will be purchasing mostly brand-new items for sale. That way, you as a costumer will have confidence that you have bought a functioning and new item. If we do sell any used or returned items, we will test them to make sure they are in working order. If they are not, we will inform you of their condition when the item is sold.
Mountain Hospice’s Patient Support Fund Benefit Auction items are sold “AS IS, WHERE IS”.
As of January 1, 2019, Mountain Hospice will be charging a 10% “Buyer’s Premium” in addition to the hammer price of an item. We add this necessary “Buyer’s Premium” to help offset some of the overhead cost. The cost of the items, labor, and transportation are continually increasing, making this move necessary. We do this so we do not have to set a reserve bid on our items.
Thanks for your understanding and we appreciate your continued support.
