Welcome to the Dartmouth General Hospital Charitable Foundation
The Dartmouth General Hospital Charitable Foundation is a registered charitable organization providing funding to enhance patient care at the Dartmouth General Hospital.
Funds are used towards the purchase of priority medical equipment, hospital renovations and expansions, and the support of special programs and projects such as Innovations In Care Grants and professional development opportunities for staff.
Since its establishment in 1975, and through the generosity of the community, the Foundation has helped to fund three major building expansions and has invested more than $35 million in equipment, facilities, and programs at the Dartmouth General Hospital. On an annual basis, the Foundation purchases more than $700,000 in patient-related equipment for the hospital.
The Dartmouth General Hospital Foundation is governed by a voluntary board of directors with representatives from the local community and the hospital. Funds are raised through major gift solicitation, community mail appeals, special events, planned giving, memorial gifts, other fundraising activities, investments, and parking revenue.
Our current priority equipment need is the Pulmonary Funtion Testing Equipment -see our news section for more details
