The John Dardis Memorial Hospice Gift Fund is supported by donations from family, friends, memorial gifts and fundraisers.

The gift fund proceeds are used to purchase non-medical items for hospice patients and their families that they would not be able to procure under normal circumstances.

The John Dardis Memorial Hospice Gift Fund is administered through the Jamestown Regional Medical Center Foundation. This fund has recently been designated as an “endowment fund,” which means it will never be discontinued, and will be available forever to provide gifts for families of hospice patients.

Any donations or memorials can be sent to the JRMC Foundation in honor of the John Dardis Hospice Gift Fund at JRMC, 2422 20th St. SW, Jamestown ND 58401.
