Pennock Foundation

Support the Pennock Foundation

"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give."-Winston Churchill


The Pennock Foundation is a conduit for the many generous contributions that are invested right back into the health and safety of communities served by Pennock Health Services. In 2011 alone, the Pennock Foundation was able to grant $572,446 - with over $5 million granted in the last 25 years. From purchasing advanced medical technology for the community and investing in new facilities, to funding bicycle helmets for local youth, your contributions to the Foundation help people of all ages achieve and maintain good health.

There is simply no doubt that every day the Pennock Foundation's donors and friends make a difference in the lives of local residents. As your local community hospital, Pennock provides over $4 million in uncompensated care. Philanthropic gifts made to the Foundation help to make up the difference for medical services and health education. You may not get to meet the patients that you help through your contributions to the Foundation, but rest assured you are making a very personal difference - helping not only patients, but entire families who struggle with health issues that dramatically impact their lives.
