Legacy Trust was established to help individuals and families in greater Nashua to access care from Southern New Hampshire Medical Center and Foundation Medical Partners, a multi-specialty physician group. As a comprehensive philanthropy and stewardship organization to support programs, services, and initiatives across Southern New Hampshire Health, Legacy Trust is committed to building a legacy of world-class care with the trust and support of our incredible, supportive community.

Our objectives are grounded in the following values:

TRUST — Our patient-focused decisions are made with respect, accountability, compassion and commitment in mind. 

STEWARDSHIP — All philanthropic gifts are used as the donor wishes and focus on areas where there is a pressing need for help.

COLLABORATION — Philanthropic initiatives include our community stakeholders as advocates and partners. 

INTEGRITY — We are committed to continuous learning and welcome feedback from donors, community partners and patients.

The Legacy Trust’s leaders work closely with the SNHH Board Members to allocate resources where they are most needed and most effective.
