The Northern Maine Medical Center Foundation is dedicated to the development of relationships and financial resources in support of the improvement of the delivery of health and healthcare in the St. John Valley through the development of financial support from our communities, foundations, and various fundraising activities. All resources realized are utilized for the support and improvement of the facilities, equipment, and services of Northern Maine Medical Center.
The Foundation, with its volunteer board of directors who set policy and direct its activities, accepts gifts on behalf of Northern Maine Medical Center and works to fund both present and future equipment and program needs. Contributions of any amount are gratefully accepted and may be unrestricted gifts or designated for a specific hospital unit or program. You can donate dollars toward a specific fund, to a specific hospital department, in memory or honor of a loved one and make a general donation. We also have several planned giving options open for donors who may be interested in making a larger more permanent gift.
Contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible to the full extent currently allowed by law, with 100% of all gifts benefiting the hospital program or department designated by its donors.
There are a variety of ways that can be used to make a gift to the Hospital Foundation endowment fund:
- Gifts of Cash
- Gifts of Appreciated Property
- Gifts of Real Estate
- Gifts of Life Insurance
- Gifts that provide Income for Life to you
There are a number of advantages of making a planned gift to NMMC:
- You may get an immediate tax deduction
- Large savings on estate taxes are possible
- The satisfaction of knowing that your gift will benefit our Hospital for years
You should seek the counsel of a qualified attorney and other trained professionals when you begin to develop or update your estate plan. We invite you to talk with our representatives about the best way to fulfill your personal financial needs when you include a gift to our Hospital.
Always know that your gifts do make a difference in the lives of our patients! There is no finer or more appropriate gift than one which offers health and hope to others. A gift to the Northern Maine Medical Center Foundation is a gift to our community. We invite you to partner with us in giving the gift of life to our patients!
