Cedarcrest 2023cgg

2023 Goals:

Founded 75 years ago, Cedarcrest Center provides extended residential and short-term specialized medical care, advanced respiratory, physical, occupational, and speech
therapies and education for children, infants to age 22, from New Hampshire and neighboring Vermont and Maine. We provide a nurturing, home-like setting and state-of-the-art medical supports including telemedicine appointments with DHMC, advanced respiratory therapy and an adaptive playground. We anticipate continued demand for our advanced respiratory therapy expertise. The organization will be convening stakeholders in our triennial strategic planning sessions aimed at identifying emerging care expansion, programs and operational priorities for the next few years.

Fundraising Events:

Several events are held throughout the year including: The annual Kids Care Walk and Roll is held in October, a non-competitive, in-person and virtual walk or roll (with an
assistive device) over a non-incline 2.1-mile course. Fun for people of all ages and abilities. Those wishing to raise community funds for the children are encouraged to do so with the support of our development team. Special event websites can be created for local fundraising efforts. Service clubs, civic groups and fraternal organizations are some of the community groups that have supported the children’s needs.

Giving Opportunities:

Private funding is an important part of Cedarcrest’s fiscal stability. Donations can be made on a recurring basis through our website. In addition to our operations, philanthropy also supports special medical equipment and educational and therapeutic technology not funded through any traditional source. Corporate sponsorships are welcome through partnerships with our Walk & Roll event. Interested individuals may contribute to Cedarcrest Center securely at www.cedarcrest4kids.org or via mail. Cedarcrest Center’s 501(c)(3) number is 02-0441832, and we welcome contributions from donor-advised funds, retirement proceeds or through appreciated securities. Please consider naming Cedarcrest as a beneficiary of your estate plan.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteers play an important part in the lives of the children at Cedarcrest Center. The children benefit from those in the community who come to read, play music and engage in activities with the children and staff. Opportunities are available for ongoing volunteerism or special group events. For more information, please visit www.cedarcrest4kids.org/volunteer.
