Alice Peck Day Family Fund
The Alice Peck Day (APD) Family Fund provides financial assistance to APD employees who are adversely affected by the COVID-19 crisis. APD employees can apply for assistance for basic necessities (from rent to food to dependent care). A committee reviews applications once every two weeks. The generosity of all who support this fund exemplifies the culture of caring at APD.
Cheshire Medical Center COVID-19 Relief Fund
The Cheshire Medical Center COVID-19 Fund provides resources needed most by the doctors, nurses and staff on the front lines during this public health crisis.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health COVID-19 Community Relief Fund
The D-HH COVID-19 Community Relief Fund provides financial assistance across the D-HH service region to organizations supporting those who are suffering from economic, social and health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 Community Relief Fund is managed by a coalition of the region service providers, which has the flexibility to direct resources to areas of greatest need. 100% of funds raised by D-HH for the Community Relief Fund will go to support community organizations.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock HOPE Fund
The Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H) HOPE Fund was established in November 2018 to provide emergency assistance to D-H employees experiencing financial crises due to unforeseen situations such as family emergencies, illness, spousal job loss and natural disasters. The Fund has broadened to include the hardships some employees face due to COVID-19.
Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center HOPE Fund
MAHHC HOPE Fund assists Mt. Ascutney Hospital employees who are experiencing hardships or financial emergencies. The Fund is supported solely by donations and was initially funded with MAHHC employee donations. The HOPE Fund is dependent upon continued community support to help our health care workers.
New London Hospital COVID-19 Relief Fund
Unrestricted gifts to the New London Hospital COVID-19 Relief Fund will support the most critical needs during preparation and response to this public health crisis. Gifts to the fund will support the procurement of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and supplies needed most by medical professionals and staff; enhanced telehealth capabilities; and training and redeployment of staff to support the most effective response to the crisis.
Visiting Nurse and Hospice for Vermont and New Hampshire Donations
Support to the Visiting Nurse and Hospice (VNH) COVID-19 fund will enable an expansion of services. Traditionally, telehealth and video visits, diabetic foot service, medication, and blood pressure monitoring are not reimbursed in home health and hospice. Expanding services to include these needs allows VNH to care for patients in their homes, while lowering the risk of exposure to COVID-19.
