Philanthropy: Our Heritage and Our Future
APD relies on the generous support of community members like you to realize its mission. Indeed, a gift made it possible for Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital to be established. In 1927, Mrs. Alice Peck Day bequeathed her home to establish a cottage hospital in Lebanon, New Hampshire. Five years later, amidst of the Great Depression, Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital opened its doors for the first time on February 1, 1932.
Since then, the community in Lebanon and throughout the Upper Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont has worked tirelessly to increase the hospital’s viability and its growth. Now, more than 85 years later, that heritage of support can continue with your help. Philanthropic support has enabled the hospital to expand its facilities and services over the years while remaining a place where patients come for high quality, highly personalized care. We rely on it more than ever to meet the challenges presented by today’s economy and health care environment.

The Annual Giving Program is the foundation of all philanthropy at Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital.

Every gift is important to the hospital and every gift, large or small, makes a difference.

Alice's Treasure Chest
We often care for children in our emergency department who may be nervous or frightened. In response, our nurses have developed a program called Alice’s Treasure Chest to help counter their fears and comfort their concerns. A trip to the treasure chest to pick out a toy gives children a positive distraction and a bit of fun during an unfamiliar situation. You can help comfort the children of our community too! Donate directly to Alice's Treasure Chest and a child being treated in our Emergency Department will receive a toy. You may donate online, purchase a toy in our Gift Tree Shop, or send your new unused toys to our Emergency Department at 10 Alice Peck Day Drive in Lebanon, NH.
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice, and APD is pleased to be one of those organizations.
