Around half of the operational costs for the Children’s Hospice are covered by the hospice rates of the health insurance. This amount thus safeguards the medicinal and nursing care. It comes nowhere near covering the entire ongoing costs, however. The support and accommodation of the parents and siblings must be completely financed through donations. For the entire operation of the Children’s Hospice, more than € 1.5.000.000 in annual donations are necessary. "Löwenherz" is thus dependent on the solidarity and the support of the population and the economy in the future, too.
A not-for-profit company with limited liability (gGmbH) was established for the operation. The shareholder is the association "Kinderhospiz Löwenherz e.V." It is responsible for the collection of donation money and for public relations.
