2022 Goals:

Cheshire Health Foundation’s (CHF) fiscal year 2022 strategic priority is to raise funds for the purchase of three new ultrasound machines for Cheshire Medical Center. CHF will also raise funds to be used for establishment of the Medical Center’s new Family Medicine Residency Program and other patient care needs.

Fundraising Events:

Cheshire Health Foundation holds three main fundraising events each year: Bald Is Beautiful (BIB), our Golf Tournament, and Caring, Candlelight and Community (Tribute). BIB supports the Patient Relief and Cancer Care Funds. The Golf Tournament and Tribute event benefits Cheshire’s Annual Fund and strategic fundraising priorities. We also participate in New Hampshire Gives and Giving Tuesday to fund patient care needs and to raise awareness of Cheshire Medical Center’s nonprofit status.
