healthcareGives logoAs spring progresses at its own pace here in New Hampshire, we are presented with many new, fresh opportunities. In my email, I receive nearly daily notices about another 5k or fundraiser. I always look forward to seeing people out of their homes again.

In the spring, the Seacoast healthcare community gathers to present a grant to a local nonprofit organization. The giving circle, HealthcareGIVES, is comprised of 190 members of the medical community.  The group has presented a grant of a minimum of $25K to various nonprofits since 2011. Each May, the grant recipients are awarded at the spring party. There is an educational event in the fall around the coming grant application season and the recent recipient's work.

The board members of HealthcareGIVES have given tremendous time and leadership to the community and through their coordination the medical community is able to give back. I thank them for their efforts and look forward to their continued success.
