Ways To Give

The JTM Foundation exists to help our community support patient care programs, services and equipment at Mather Hospital. Every dollar you donate to the Foundation stays in the community and enhances the level of care at our hospital.

Mather Hospital is a critical community asset that touches the lives of people in every neighborhood in north Brookhaven Town and the surrounding communities. With your support, we can help ensure the Hospital is ready for you and your loved ones when they need it most.

General Donations

More than 100,000 patients depend on Mather every year. Some for a simple lab tests, others for more extensive lifesaving treatments.  Your generous gift can be designated by you to a specific program of service at Mather or directed to the hospital and used where it is needed most. Gifts may be made all at once or pledged and fulfilled over a period of time. 

Special Events

Throughout the year, Mather Hospital organizes special events to raise funds to advance our patient care services and programs.  From golf tournaments to comedy shows, there is an event to appeal to everyone in the community and allow you to support your Hospital.  By supporting our fundraising efforts, you are helping to keep Mather at the forefront of medical care.

In Honor Donation 

You can pay tribute to a loved one, or to say thank you to hospital staff members who cared for you or a dear one during an illness through an Honor donation. The Foundation will send a special card to the person you have chosen to honor.  You will receive personal acknowledgement for your generous gift, and the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a difference in healthcare in our community by supporting patient care at Mather Hospital. The amount of your donation is kept confidential.

In Memoriam 

A donation in memory of a family member or friend is a meaningful way for you to express your sympathy and support the good works at Mather Hospital.

These contributions go on to help save and change the lives of patients here in our community. You may also choose to designate your gift to the department or program of your choice.

The Foundation will send a card to the bereaved family acknowledging your thoughtful gesture.  You will receive a note of thanks from the Foundation for your generosity.  Please know the amount of the memorial donations are kept confidential.
