Your Philanthropy at Work
Julie DeGalan
Senior Director of Development
Annual Fund gifts form the cornerstone of support that allows New London Hospital to provide quality
primary care and specialized clinical services in a close, caring environment. Each year, you and other
community members continue a long tradition of support for the hospital that plays a critical role in
our continuity, growth, and success in caring for our patients. We are deeply grateful for your
ongoing assistance.
Each year as you make your gift to New London Hospital, you probably get out your checkbook and, as
you write your check, you may wonder whether there is a way to do more for the hospital.
As the economy continues to recover, increasing the amount of the check you write may not be the most
financially effective way to enhance your charitable gift this year. In an effort to assist you as you consider
increasing your support of New London Hospital, we are making available a series of publications that offer
information and detailed examples of the financial benefits provided by using various assets or vehicles.
Publication topics include:
• Giving Securities
• Giving Through Life Insurance
• Giving Through Retirement Plans
• Giving Real Estate
If you are considering providing future support for New London Hospital, bequests have long been the
most popular way to do so. A bequest can take several forms so we also offer a publication titled,
Through Your Will.
Gifts of securities, life insurance, retirement plans, real estate, and bequests are often referred to as planned
gifts. New London Hospital honors donors who make this type of gift by including them in The Birch Society.
By becoming a member, you would join an illustrious group of individuals who have acted on their desire to
make a positive difference in the health of our community for generations to come.
If you would like more information about making a planned gift, please do not hesitate to contact me, either
by phone (603-526-5023) or by email ( for a confidential conversation.
I look forward to speaking with you!
Artist Donates Painting
of NH’s Old Man
Artist Tom Barber of Andover recently donated
his original oil painting of New Hampshire’s
most recognizable symbol to New London
Hospital. Aptly titled “What Once Was,” the
Old Man of the Mountain now hangs in the
newly renovated Baker Memorial Laboratory
waiting area and can be enjoyed by patients,
visitors and employees alike.
The Friends of NLH Art Committee and
NLH are grateful to Tom for generously
contributing a unique and beautiful piece
of New Hampshire history to the hospital’s
permanent art collection.
