Enhancing Patient Care     Since 1986

Welcome to Massena Hospital Foundation

Massena Hospital Foundation was created in 1986. We work relentlessly to enhance patient care which is supported by the fundraising events that we conduct on behalf of Massena and the surrounding communities. We aim at creating a better world for our community by supporting our local hospital.

Massena Memorial Hospital Foundation

We are well connected with the local community and the health realities of the conditions they face. We continuously work to make sure that the needs of the public are met by the hospital. At the same time, we are well-aware of the hospital's needs, which guide us in our efforts to enhance patient care. All in all, we work in partnership with hospital staff to bridge gaps for equipment purchases, technology upgrades, patient comfort initiatives, and staff support by coordinating the support of local business and individuals.

Our Programs

  • Ben Franklin Club and "In Memorial" donations make up a large part of our annual fund which allow us to assist with projects of greatest need

  • Restricted and unrestricted funds are raised through our annual Radiothon, Golf Tournament or Hockey Tournament

  • Direct mail program intended to raise money for a specific piece of equipment or hospital department

  • Carefully invested funds that will produce a funding stream in perpetuity to benefit the hospital and Foundation

  • Donor directed funds given through bequests, trusts etc. establishing a lasting legacy within the community

  • Share your appreciation of the special care received by one of our 300+ employees during your visit or stay.

“This community means a lot to us professionally as well as personally. We have made Massena our home raising our two daughters here. It was easy to want to re-invest in the future of Massena’s healthcare”
