Anna Jaques Hospital Aid Association Annual Gift 2022

On October 20, 2022 at the 134th Annual Meeting, the AJH Aid Association Executive Board presented a check to the Anna Jaques Hospital Community Health Foundation for $115,000. This critical annual donation was graciously accepted by Mark Goldstein, President & CEO and Mary Williamson, VP of Philanthropy for the Anna Jaques Community Health Foundation. The Aid Association is a group of approximately 200 local volunteers dedicated to fundraising through a series of community events. The AJH Aid Association has been raising money for Anna Jaques hospital since 1888 and as always, all funds raised locally remail local and are utilized to support critical local initiatives.

The Aid Association’s fundraising success is a collaborative effort that can be attributed to a variety of very popular local events including: the Holiday House Tour, the Thanksgiving pie sale, the annual plant sale, Great Chefs’ Week, the Seaside Soiree and the tree of light. These local events reflect the important role that the Aid Association plays as they bring together local businesses, community leaders, hospital supporters, and philanthropic individuals in support of our community hospital. In addition to these successful annual events, sales from the very popular Anna Jaques Hospital gift shop also contribute to the fundraising efforts. The Anna Jaques Aid Association works closely with the Anna Jaques Community Health Foundation which also helps raise funds for the hospital.
