Gifts made to the Trust directly impact and enhance care that is provided across Southern New Hampshire Health to patients throughout our community. When you make a gift to Legacy Trust, you can earmark it for specialized care such as cancer, heart care, behavioral health, maternal and child health. And, as new health threats emerge, there is even more of a pressing need for better training, state-of-the-art technology, and compassionate healthcare. Your investment ensures we can take care of those who need us most in the decades to come.

We want you to direct how the Legacy Trust uses your generous contribution. Identify the area of greatest need at the time of your gift or choose an area  close to your heart.

  • Invest in training and equipment to ensure our dedicated clinical staff is prepared to handle new health threats that surface through our Emerging Needs.
  • Enable patients struggling with disease to benefit from the latest in innovative approaches, pilot programs and equipment through our Specialized Care.

Please let us know if your company supports Matching Gifts to maximize your impact.


Do you have a loved one or caregiver you would like to honor? You have the option to specify “In honor of” or “In memory of” when you contribute to the Legacy Trust.

You are also invited to specify how you would like those funds used: for the comfort and care of our patients, preparation for future health threats or advancing excellence in training and equipment to prevent and treat disease.


We need help caring for greater Nashua’s most vulnerable individuals, children and families. Donors of $1,000+ before December 31, 2022 will be permanent members of our Founders Circle and recognized on our web site. We are seeking generous benefactors to make sure we have the resources to make a difference from the outset, and have identified special giving categories for the first year only.

We have several options to recognize your contribution, including naming spaces on our campuses. Please contact Paula Taylor at (603) 281-9854 or to discuss how your donation can be most meaningful to you.



The 1893 Circle honors all those that have included Southern New Hampshire Health in their estate plans, while celebrating the year our hospital was founded.
