Ways to Support APD
Annual Giving Program
The Annual Giving Program is the foundation of all philanthropy at Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital. Annual gifts may be unrestricted (the “General Fund”) or designated for medical equipment or nurses’ training. The General Fund supports hospital operations and helps APD provide for other priority needs like charity care for patients who are unable to pay their medical bills. Every gift is important to the hospital and every gift, large or small, makes a difference.
Giving Made Easy – Monthly Gifts
Please consider becoming a sustaining donor to the Annual Giving Program. With the cost of mailing and printing increasing, we are looking for ways to save money and put the majority of your contributions to work in helping our patients. You can elect to become a sustaining donor with monthly, quarterly, or annual charges to a credit or debit card in the amount you choose. This way you will always be a current donor to APD and you will help us save our resources to continue serving the community.

Grateful Patient Program
…a smile that made you feel at ease…a caring hand reassuring you or the warm blanket that brought you comfort. These simple gestures of compassion from APD team members are what makes a difference to our patients.
Through the APD Grateful Patient Program, you have the opportunity to express your gratitude in recognition of the excellent care you received at Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital.
Some of the most meaningful gifts we receive come from patients or their families who want to say thank you to a physician, nurse, or other employee, or to mark a milestone in recovery. When you give a gift in honor of one of our team members, we will see that your message reaches the appropriate person so they know of your gratitude and your generosity. The amount of your gift will remain confidential. We will send you an acknowledgement for your contribution for your tax records.
All monies received support the Annual Giving Program, which helps to address the hospital's greatest needs—equipment updates and purchases, nurses' continuing training and education, and the Senior Care Program. Your gift helps us help others.

Capital Campaign Gifts
Through the years APD has embarked on capital campaigns to improve the facility. Capital campaigns have improved the operation rooms, the Robert A. Mesropian Community Care Center, and most recently the Donald Faulkner Dickey Medical-Surgical Wing. Currently, the building a new Day capital campaign is focused on the renovation of the med-surg wing while plans are being made for the second phase of renovation of the main facility. Contact Melanie Moore at (603) 448-7429 to discuss a gift to the campaign.
A gift can be designated to a specific program or area of the hospital that has special interest or meaning for the donor. Before making such a gift, please contact Melanie Moore, Associate Vice President of Philanthropy and Community Relations, at (603) 448-7429.
Memorial or Honorarium Gifts
Any gift you give to APD may be made in memory or honor of someone who is special to you. Memorial gifts may be designated to the Annual Giving Program, one of the most valuable ways to give to APD, or to another purpose. Please be sure to indicate the name and address of the person/s we should notify of your thoughtful contribution.
You may also choose to list APD as a recipient of memorial gifts in the obituary of a loved one. Here’s a sample of language you may use: “In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital, 10 Alice Peck Day Drive, Lebanon, NH 03766.
Planned Giving: A Gift of Permanence
When you remember APD in your estate plans, you help to ensure the long-term financial strength and ongoing quality of the healthcare we provide. We can help you and your attorney or financial advisor design a plan that preserves your commitment to your family, while also fulfilling your desire to support APD.
When you let us know that you have made a provision for APD in your will or through another type of planned gift, you will be invited to become a member of The Homestead Society. Named after the home that Alice Peck Day bequeathed to the Lebanon community to create a hospital, The Homestead Society honors those who choose to leave a legacy gift to APD.
