Giving to our hospital has never been easier. Or more fulfilling.


Whether you wish to support the annual fund, our campaign, or a specific area of the hospital, there are many ways to make a gift.

The simplest way to make a gift to the hospital is with a donation via check or credit card. Gifts can be designated to The NCH Fund, the capital campaign, or specific needs of the hospital. Give now online, or mail a check to Nantucket Cottage Hospital Foundation, 57 Prospect Street, Nantucket, MA 02554.

Memorial and Tribute gifts can celebrate an occasion, honor a friend or caregiver, or remember a beloved friend or family member.

A gift of stock can provide significant tax advantages and allow you to increase your contribution. Download details for a stock transfer here or contact the Foundation Office at (508) 825-8250. Wire transfer instructions are also available here. Be sure to let us know when you are transferring stock or making a wire transfer so that we can ensure the gift is appropriately credited to you.

Consider a planned gift or bequest to benefit the future of wellness on Nantucket. Learn more about gift planning.

Leverage matching gifts from your employer. If your company has a matching gift policy, check their guidelines and submit a matching gift form with your gift. We’ll take care of the rest. Some companies will also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Sponsor our events

Invest in the future of healthcare on Nantucket with a gift or pledge to the capital campaign.

Buy a brick to honor the birth of a Nantucket Native and support The Birthplace! The brick will be engraved with the native’s name and date of birth and will be displayed on the Wall of Natives outside The Birthplace. For questions about purchasing a brick, please call the Foundation at (508) 825-8250.

Donate a car. The hospital maintains a small fleet of vehicles for our visiting physicians and staff. Vehicles should be less than 10 years old and in good working condition. It’s a great way to keep a well-loved car in use and get a tax deduction.

Donor Spotlight The Beach Stanton Fund

A chance visit to Nantucket nearly 50 years ago first brought the Beach family to the island, and would lay the foundation for what would become one of Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s most meaningful and lasting relationships.



Event Spotlight A hole in one with two great benefits

At the Swing for NCH golf tournament in August 2014, Phil Stambaugh won a Jeep donated by Don Allen Ford for his hole in one. He then made a gift to the hospital of his Acura MDX as a vehicle for visiting doctors and staff, which was greatly needed.



Donor Spotlight Annual Donor Report

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.
