The Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation (Byrne Foundation) has committed to match donations to New London Hospital’s (NLH) Hospital Days dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000, to inspire the community to support Hematology-Oncology Infusion Services, the beneficiary of Hospital Days gifts and proceeds.
Since April, NLH, a member of Dartmouth Health, has raised more than $25,000 for these efforts, and is appealing to the community to assist with the final stretch to help unlock the additional $50,000. Once fulfilled, the match will result in total giving of $100,000 to Hematology-Oncology Infusion Services.
“The Byrne Foundation matching challenge, offered in conjunction with a community event such as Hospital Days, is particularly exciting,” says Tom Manion, NLH President and CEO. “It provides us the ability to further highlight the importance of offering infusion services right here in the Lake Sunapee Region to a large and diverse audience. Our entire community is empowered to participate—every contribution truly matters.”
This matching gift challenge is part of NLH’s Hospital Days fundraising initiative to raise funds that will help improve and enhance the infusion patient experience. Gifts will impact every area of the infusion patient experience, from esthetic updates to the infusion suite to items that will provide warmth and comfort to patients during their treatments.
All monetary gifts made in support of NLH’s Infusion Services efforts prior to September 30, 2023 will count toward the challenge and will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000. Make a gift online.
