Clare Holland House is calling on Canberrans to contribute their cash to its expansion, ahead of its expected completion in the middle of this year.
The Canberra hospice currently has 19 inpatient beds and will add another eight with the expansion project.
Calvary Specialist Palliative Care Service medical director Dr Suharsha Kanathigoda said the new fundraising program was a great opportunity for Canberrans to show their gratitude for the service.
"They now have the opportunity to make a general donation, create their own tribute page, or to host - actually or virtually - their own fundraising event," Dr Kanathigoda said.
"At Clare Holland House we strive to create a calm and comfortable environment.
"Important elements of that include the soft furnishings, and fittings and making our gardens and grounds an extension of our clinical spaces.
"This is particularly important for our younger people and paediatric patients who are admitted for inpatient palliative care."
The fundraising program was being run as part of Hands Across Canberra's Canberra Day Appeal.
Clare Holland House said The Snow Foundation had already donated $2 million towards the hospice's expansion project, and any donation made by a member of the public would be matched until March 9.
