The Foundation fosters a culture of giving to benefit the Dartmouth General Hospital and the health and well being of the people it serves.
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 $40 million in equipment, facilities, and programs at the Dartmouth General 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.
