A healthy community starts with your support

Ways to Donate to Nantucket Cottage Hospital

The geographic isolation that makes Nantucket so special creates unique healthcare challenges. Access to 24-hour emergency medicine, surgery and obstetrics are critical to sustaining life 30 miles at sea. The high fixed costs associated with delivering compassionate, high-quality care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, cannot be covered by patient revenue alone. NCH relies on the philanthropic support of the community. 

More Ways to Show Your Support:

  • Attend our annual Boston Pops on Nantucket event, which is consistently voted the “island’s best summer event” and brings the community together at Jetties Beach for an evening of unparalleled entertainment each August.
  • Donate gently used items to the Hospital Thrift Shop. Since 1929, the Hospital Thrift Shop has provided affordable goods to the community while raising funds for the hospital.

PLANNED GIVING

Consider a planned gift or bequest to benefit the future of wellness on Nantucket. Outright gifts (such as gifts of cash) go to work immediately and are essential to the hospital today. But a gift in the future – through a bequest or life income gift – may allow you to give more and ensure the hospital can continue to be a center of health and wellness for future generations. Some gifts can provide income to you now.
