One of the simplest ways to make a planned gift is through a bequest or a testamentary will. Wills are considered “revocable” because you can change your mind and amend your plans for your estate. Wills are made to leave money, personal property such as your home or jewelry, and your accounts to the recipients you select. Give something to your family and also give to your church, your college, and places like Littleton Regional Healthcare (LRH), to show your appreciation for services over the years. Your bequest can help strengthen our community for many years to come. Please click here for more information.

Current Needs

Our community needs us to be here with primary care that keeps us well, emergency care when accidents happen, and specialized care when illness strikes our family. Our doors are never closed – our arms are open when you need us. With your help, we can continue to be the North Country’s center of excellence for you, your family, and your neighbor’s medical needs. That’s the kind of community in which we all want to live.

Your gift to our annual fund will help support the purchase of state-of-the-art medical equipment, such as three-dimensional mammography equipment and furniture for our patients and visitors in the Oncology / Hematology Department. The Littleton Regional Healthcare also purchases supplies needed by patients to promote wellness and safety, such as infant car seats, bicycle helmets for children, and bariatric scales for cardiac patients to monitor weight at home.

Most people donate to LRH because they have had an experience for which they are grateful – they appreciate the care, the skill, and the expertise provided to a loved one. Grandparents are thrilled with the special care given in the Birthing Suite. Adult children appreciate the compassion and guidance offered during care of an elderly parent. Relief comes when a family vacation is interrupted by a visit to the Emergency Department where knowledgeable and caring providers proficiently attend to a broken leg. A strong medical center helps make our community strong, and that is why we are asking for your support.

Please join us in becoming a member of the LRH family by making a contribution to the Littleton Regional Healthcare today. Every single gift makes a difference in the life of someone getting care here. If you are over 70-1/2, consider making your gift directly from your IRA, avoiding capital gains taxes. Let us know if you have considered naming Littleton Regional Healthcare in your will. Sign up for recurring smaller monthly gifts directly from your credit card, perhaps while earning travel points. However, you decide to give, feel great about your investment. You are making Northern New Hampshire a better place to live and raise a family!
