Annual Fund

Annual gifts from individuals, the business community, service organizations, and foundations provide the cornerstone of philanthropic support for Beth Israel Deaconess - Plymouth. These gifts are our building blocks.

Unrestricted dollars raised through our Annual Giving Program go to where the need is greatest. Each year, thousands of dollars are needed to maintain the high caliber of medical staffing and technology required to provide first-rate health care in our community. Immediate priorities such as diagnostic, medical and surgical equipment, and improved information systems are funded from contributions to our annual appeals. You may also restrict your annual gift to a specified program or service at Beth Israel Deaconess - Plymouth.

Why We Give....

“There are a lot of worthy causes out there, and I think it makes sense to start where you are personally connected. Part of living in a community is looking for ways you can make it stronger. For me, that includes making an annual gift to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital - Plymouth. As a physician affiliated with BID- Plymouth, my charitable contributions are a direct reflection of my commitment to the Hospital’s mission to care for our community and set a precedent for other donors. Please join me in making your contribution to our 2014 Annual Fund. Remember, regardless of the amount, your gift does make a difference."
                                                            -- Dr. David M. Kelly


A longtime nurse at Brigham and Women’s and Mass General Hospitals, Carol Kushkowski of Plymouth specialized in IV therapy. When Carol was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, she knew where she wanted to go for treatment: the Jordan Hospital Club Cancer Center. Thanks to our interdisciplinary team of cancer care professionals, an aggressive treatment plan, and to the charitable support of friends like you that help us invest in our people and technology, her tests now show her cancer is in remission. “Today, it is such a joy to give”, says Carol. “Even in hard times – especially in hard times – I gave to Jordan Hospital and will continue giving today to BID-Plymouth because of the outstanding care I’ve received, and because with my volunteer work and my annual donation I know I can make a difference in the lives of people in our community.”


Chief of Emergency Medicine at Jordan, Dr. Mark DeMatteo knows firsthand how critical it is to have Jordan’s range and depth of services close to home. “I give to Jordan,” says Dr. DeMatteo, “because I believe in the people and services that are Jordan. It is truly a privilege to have my practice at an institution that has given immeasurably to our community for over 100 years. I hope everyone will join me in making a gift today.”


Vivian Cotti, a longtime Hospital friend, donor and 10-year volunteer, says, “I have lived in Plymouth all my life. My children were born at Jordan Hospital. And as a volunteer, I see the dedication and compassion ofour doctors, nurses and staff every day I am here. That is why I support Jordan.”
