#GiveBackFridays: The Westerly Hospital Foundation

Westerly is a quintessential New England coastal town; home to some of Rhode Island’s finest beaches, yachting, and architecture. Among Rhode Island’s seaside communities, Westerly is perhaps the most carefully preserved and conveniently located example of this enviable lifestyle. In addition to the stunning natural scenery and the pristine beaches, Westerly also offers some of the finest Victorian residential and commercial architecture in the state.

Downtown Westerly-Pawcatuck is a unique two-state downtown that straddles the Pawcatuck River. This historically and culturally rich area serves as a year-round community and commercial center. It is one of the few historic downtowns of Southern Rhode Island that veritably thrives to this day. Westerly has so much to offer when considering the purchase of a first or second home, and with its very own airport and Amtrak station, it’s as easy to island-hop to Block Island as it is to make the commute to Boston or New York.

For more than 90 years, Westerly Hospital has been providing residents of southern Rhode Island and southeastern Connecticut with a full range of inpatient and outpatient services in a community hospital setting. The Westerly Hospital Foundation’s sole mission is to develop philanthropic support for Westerly Hospital. Established in 1999 and is a subsidiary of the Hospital, the Foundation achieves this goal with the guidance of its board of directors (who are appointed by the Hospital’s board) through a suite of activities that includes The Annual Fund, Special & Major Gifts, Planned Gifts and Special Events.

According to the website, “philanthropy is vital to Westerly Hospital’s charitable mission. And the capital resources provided by our generous patrons enable the Hospital to carry out the directive, and serve Westerly, Stonington and surrounding area residents with the best medical care possible.”

Since 2018, Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty has been a proud sponsor of The Westerly Hospital Foundation. This year, the Golf Tournament was held at the Misquamicut Club and raised $45,000.
