Elliot Health System/Mary & John Elliot Charitable Foundation


2023 Goals:

For more than 130 years, Elliot Hospital has existed for one purpose: to positively impact the health and well-being of the people we are privileged to serve. As part of the southern New Hampshire community, and as a founding member of SolutionHealth, we are dedicated to serving the many health needs of the region’s families and advancing the standard of medical care for this part of the country. The Mary and John Elliot Charitable Foundation is a nonprofit organization created to provide financial support for the various healthcare needs of southern New Hampshire and the Elliot Health System. The Foundation is committed to building an ongoing circle of friends whose support will identify and meet the emerging healthcare needs of The Elliot.

Fundraising Events:

The Foundation hosts several Signature Events annually — Elliot Gala, Elliot Golf Classic, Elliot Fall Fest Golf, Garden Party and the Solinsky Center for Cancer Care Walk for Hope — all to benefit patient care across Elliot Health System. We also raise funds through our Annual Giving Fund, Corporate Partnership Program and our Inspired Giving Program (grateful patient program). For more information on becoming an annual donor, corporate partner, forming a team for Walk for Hope, attending or volunteering for an event, or to donate to our event auctions, please visit elliothospital.org/foundation for more information, or email us at foundation@elliothospital.org.
