About the Memorial Hospital Foundation

Established in 2013 to meet the ever-increasing demands for community based health care, Memorial Hospital Foundation (MHF) is incorporated under the laws of the State of New Hampshire as a non-profit charity. MHF shares some board members with the Hospital, with a distinct focus to raise and manage charitable funds on behalf of Memorial Hospital in North Conway, NH. MHF provides resources for equipment, programs and services that benefit patients and help to keep our community healthy. The Foundation accomplishes its goals through a number of different activities and events throughout the year. Many of the donors who support MHF do so because they have experienced exceptional care at Memorial Hospital. The Foundation facilitates giving in a way that helps donors accomplish their philanthropic goals and meet the needs of the Hospital.

Thanks to the wisdom of the Memorial Hospital Trustees, MHF was created during 2013 as a separately incorporated tax exempt organization under IRS rules. The formation of MHF was an important part of the Hospital’s consideration in becoming a member of the MaineHealth System. We are governed by a Board of Trustees, and we are focused on the following primary purposes:

  1. to serve as the fundraising arm for Memorial Hospital

  2. to serve as steward for Memorial Hospital’s endowment

MHF is a Supporting Foundation, which means that any distributions we make, or any funds that are contributed can only be used by Memorial Hospital. This feature is the bedrock of MHF because it assures all donors that their giving will stay right here in our community to be used by our hospital to provide outstanding care, and to promote wellness activities and programs for all our citizens and visitors.

Our new website is designed to provide you with up-to-date information, and as you learn more, you will discover many interactive features. Whether you are interested in a particular gifting opportunity, would like to register for an event, or be included in our honor role of donors, we hope you will enjoy your visit, and will feel free to share any questions or thoughts with us.

Thank you and again, welcome to the Memorial Hospital Foundation.
