Leadership Giving to The NCH Fund

We gratefully acknowledge the impact of these leadership donors who give $1,000 or more annually. They set the standard for philanthropy at NCH by providing flexible, essential funds to support care for the entire Nantucket community.

In the past five years, The NCH Fund has nearly doubled, largely due to these generous donors. From FY10-FY14, the number of donors of $1,000 or more increased 88%, from 151 in 2010 to 284 in 2014.

In recognition of their generosity, leadership donors are invited to an annual brunch celebrating their impact and to other special events. Donors are recognized in the annual Report to Donors.

Every year, the Nantucket Cottage Hospital Foundation publishes its annual Report to Our Donors to celebrate, highlight, and thank our donors and volunteers. This report is filled with the names of people who recognize that life as we know it on Nantucket wouldn’t be the same without a hospital that meets the needs of a thriving year-round community.



Donor Spotlight Melanie Sabelhaus

“The Nantucket Cottage Hospital is the center of our universe for health care the moment we step on this island. We love this special island 30 miles out to sea, sharing its beauty and history with family and friends, but we must also share the obligation and responsibility to support our hospital together in a big and bold way."
