Helping one person might not change the world,

but it could change the world for one person!

The Nascentia Health Charitable Foundation’s mission is to increase community awareness of our most vulnerable populations, to raise funds to address their unmet needs and to better serve their well-being across the regions that we serve. It also supports the education and development of in-home care providers, to enhance the availability of highly qualified caregivers that attend to our most vulnerable, well into the future.

Support the Nascentia Health Charitable Foundation and spend the afternoon with your family & friends!

Giving Back

Nascentia Health Charitable Foundation is dedicated to helping our patients by increasing community awareness, delivering health and wellness programs, and funding medical and personal necessities for those who are uninsured or underinsured.

Each year, support for our foundation has enabled us to improve the quality of life for countless patients and their families throughout Upstate New York. We graciously thank everyone who has supported our foundation over the years through donations, volunteer hours and more.

Recent donations from our Foundation include items that bring considerable value to each patient and their families, enabling them to maintain or increase their independence, health and self-sufficiency.

  • Adjustable bedrails to prevent falls/slipping out of bed for an elderly patient
  • Hoyer Lift Scale to monitor a congestive heart failure patient’s weight
  • Beasy slide transfer board for a wheelchair bound patient to slide between surfaces easily with safety and efficiency
  • Training for a Nascentia Nurse to advance skills on pediatric feeding
  • Comfort heel pillows to relive pressure ulcers on a bed bound patient’s foot
  • Stroller for a mother to transport her child to and from doctor’s appointments with a carbon monoxide monitor, oxygen, and enteral feeding pump

Your donation makes all the difference

The gifts of comfort, safety, and self sufficiency that we give to our patients change their lives for the better in both small and large ways. Your generosity is what enables us to continue bringing joy and security to the people we serve daily. Please consider giving the gift of hope to a local Central New Yorker.

A donation to the Nascentia Health Charitable Foundation enables us to give someone in need a hand up, not a hand out. We help our patients improve their own health and become more independent, and give our clinical staff the additional specialized training they need to most effectively care for them.
