We are also making fundraising progress. Building on a $350,000 pledge from the Roy Malool Family Foundation
and other generous early donor commitments, additional gifts and pledges since publication of our Fall newsletter
bring us to a total of $828,000, over one-third of our $2.2 million goal. This new total includes a $65,000 grant
from Jane’s Trust of Boston, which is a significant contribution by a major funder outside our region that
recognizes the importance of this project.

With about 100 donors to date—our thanks                         For more background on this project—
to each one!—we continue to seek support                         including regular photo updates—visit
from across our 15-town service area, needing   
the participation of many more individuals,
organizations and businesses to reach our goal.                         To make a pledge or gift, contact
We invite both past donors to NLH and those who                        Karen Zurheide at 603-526-5023 or
have not yet provided us with financial support          
to help us in Building for Health in our region,
by investing in this project. A stronger Newport
Health Center means a stronger NLH for everyone.
Other than donations to our Annual Fund, the
best way to support NLH at this time is with a gift
to Building for Health.
