Greater Seacoast Community Health Aims to Raise $20,000 during NH Gives to Support Accessible Health Care

Greater Seacoast Community Health will participate in NH Gives, a 24-hour fundraising event taking place June 11 and 12 that brings together hundreds of nonprofits and tens of thousands of donors to raise money and awareness for the causes served by NH’s nonprofit sector. The health care network is aiming to raise $20,000, with the first $10,000 donated being matched by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation’s Evans Morone Family Fund.

Greater Seacoast includes Families First Health & Support Center in Portsmouth and Goodwin Community Health in Somersworth. The community health centers provide a variety of health and social services including primary care, behavioral health care, dental care, and family support. The organization’s mission is to provide innovative, compassionate, integrated health services and support that are accessible to all Seacoast residents, regardless of ability to pay. One way it does this is by offering a sliding scale discount for patients who are uninsured or underinsured.

NH Gives begins at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11 and ends at 5 p.m. the next day. Donors can visit nhgives.org and make a donation to Greater Seacoast Community Health as well as other participating organizations, or go directly to Greater Seacoast’s donation page.

“We are excited to be participating in NH Gives again this year,” said Joann Neumann, Development Director. “It is 24 hours for Granite Staters to give back to the nonprofits that give so much to our communities every day. We also fortunate to once again be supported with a donation match from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation’s Evans Morone Family Fund. The funds raised with the help of all our supporters makes a huge difference for the patients and clients that we serve.”
