Why Charitable Support Is So Important to the Work of BMH

Over the years, Brattleboro Memorial Hospital has been the beneficiary of generous financial support from so many of our friends and neighbors. Building on the legacy of the Thompsons, these gifts of support have provided BMH with the resources to continue to provide high-quality health care here in our community. Whether these are outright gifts or planned legacy gifts, they help to fulfill the mission of Brattleboro Memorial Hospital, ‘community based quality health services delivered with compassion and respect.’

At the turn of the 20th Century, Brattleboro did not have any nurse who was a resident of this town, let alone a hospital. So in 1901, the fund known as the Thompson Trust became available to the town.

You may direct your Annual Fund gift to either BMH’s Area of Greatest Need for general operating support and improvements in patient care, or to the Uncompensated Medical Care Fund, which provides relief to those who need medical services but lack adequate resources to pay.

Planned giving is legacy giving. It is a meaningful way to give back – to leave a philanthropic legacy to your community and to Brattleboro Memorial Hospital.

The birth of a baby is a stellar event for families and friends. Commemorate this amazing arrival with a star engraved with the baby’s name and birth date.

The 1904 Legacy Society was established to recognize supporters who have constructed legacy gifts that will benefit BMH at some time in the future.
