SUNNYVALE, CA – April 30, 2013 – Pathways Home Health & Hospice, a home health, palliative care and hospice agency, received a two-year $123,000 challenge grant from the Sobrato Family Foundation. Pathways will use this grant in part to make renovations to their headquarters in Sunnyvale to accommodate the increase in staff needed to manage and support the growing demand for our home health, telemonitoring, chronic care, palliative, and hospice programs.
Pathways has received the first installment of $60,000 which must be matched by new or increased donations by December 31, 2013. Due to this grant, individuals and organizations can now double the impact of their donations to Pathways when their giving this year exceeds that of last year. Donations may be made at
“The Sobrato Family Foundation is a recognized leader in philanthropy in the Santa Clara Valley,” said Sandra Coolidge, Vice President of Admissions, Community Relations and Philanthropy at Pathways.  “Their continued support of Pathways Home Health & Hospice is a vote of confidence in us and the care we provide for our patients and their families. The Sobrato Family Foundation leads the way in helping Silicon Valley nonprofits thrive and provide critical services for our community.  We welcome the encouragement this grant provides to our donors.”
