There are many ways to help your community....

Helping Us Help Others

Gifts and donations provide necessary support for important community programs and services such as Diabetes prevention and education programs for adults and children, community suicide prevention and mental wellness work, and other community benefit programs working to improve the outlook for our community now and for future generations.  In addition, gifts and donations help us to purchase new and replacement equipment items, and support a variety of needs in all areas of Heywood Healthcare and its sites, including the Winchendon Health Center, and the Murdock School Based Health Center.

As a small non-profit community hospital, your support is the foundation for sustainability, and growth of community health programs.  

What is Your Legacy?

Another meaningful way to care for your community is to consider a charitable bequest. Charitable bequests may be structured in a variety of ways to include leaving a specific dollar amount, identifying a percentage of your assets (for example 3% of your savings account), personal property, or a portion of the residue of the estate following the completion of other bequests, or combination of the above.

A charitable bequest is also a way to convey your values of caring for people, and the health of your community, to future generations.  

To discuss other types of gifts such as charitable bequests, annuities, trusts, etc., please contact the Office of Philanthropy at 978-630-6431.  

We request that you do not give employees personal cash donations as a way of saying thank you for their good care. They are not permitted to accept such gifts.  It is the mission of Heywood Healthcare and each of our employees, to give you the best care possible. Your return to good health is our reward.
