Honor a Caregiver

Let your health care hero know they made a difference in your care through our Gifts of Gratitude program. 

Tribute Gifts

A meaningful and thoughtful way to remember a loved one or honor family, friends, and colleagues.

Make your tribute gift online (using a credit card) or through the mail (using the address above) and include the name of the person you want to remember, honor or thank. We will send an acknowledgement of your gift to the honoree or recipient you request.

Matching Gifts

Did you know that many companies match charitable gifts made by employees, retirees and directors? These gifts are counted toward the individual’s total giving to Wentworth-Douglass Hospital. Donors need to complete the paperwork from the company’s human resources department and send it to the Foundation.

Sponsorship & Corporate Philanthropy

Wentworth-Douglass is incredibly fortunate to have loyal corporate donors.  These donors see the value in philanthropic partnership with the Seacoast region’s leading medical center.  Gifts from corporations are often used to help with special events, high-profile initiatives, and naming opportunities. Please contact Judy Pinkham at (603) 609-6678 or to learn more. 

Publicly Traded Securities/Wire Transfers

Stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares that have appreciated in value are a popular—and tax-advantaged—way to donate. The full market value of the publicly traded security is recognized for gift purposes, which allows donors to avoid potential capital gains taxes. Unless the Foundation’s Board of Directors determines that there is a reason to hold specific gifts of securities, all securities will be sold upon acceptance. The value of a gift of stock (for the donor’s income tax purposes) is based on the fair market value on the date of the donor’s gift.

Please contact Susan Chase, CFRE, Major Gifts Officer at or 603-609-6161 ext. 4391 to obtain the transfer instructions for wire transfers and gifts of securities.

IRA Rollover

If you have Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA (If you are over 701/2) you can donate your distribution directly to the hospital tax free (Up to $100,000). This will reduce your overall tax burden. Contact the Foundation to learn more. 

Employee Giving

The reason why Wentworth-Douglass Hospital is such a special place is simple: the people—the incredibly talented, caring and compassionate employees of the Wentworth-Douglass Hospital. We are fortunate that so many employees donate or raise funds for Wentworth-Douglass. They do this because they believe in the hospital’s mission, they are closely connected to our patients and their families, and they know that every little bit makes a difference.

If you are an employee looking to make a donation, please contact the Foundation at or 603-740-2687.
