General Support

Gifts made to The Foundation fund a variety of special programs within the hospital and throughout the North Country community. Gifts can be given as general support for The Foundation (unrestricted) or may be donated for use by a specific department or program (restricted). Either way, you know that your contribution is being invested in important health and wellness initiatives.

Unrestricted gifts allow us to fund a variety of projects throughout the year. Whether a donation is made in memory of someone, in honor of someone, because you or a loved one received great care at the hospital -or- because you believe in our mission, your gift helps fund the following:
