Community Impact Program

Grants and Sponsorships


Exeter Health Resources and its operating affiliates -- Exeter Hospital, Core Physicians, and Rockingham VNA & Hospice -- are "United in Wellness." This simple, but important, phrase embodies our health system's collective efforts to improve the health of the communities we serve. One piece of this commitment is financial investment in Rockingham County non-profits through grants and sponsorships, which are projected to reach $930,000 in 2019.
The 2017-2019 Funding Priorities are:

  • Access to Primary Health Care
  • Substance Misuse Prevention
  • Mental Health Care Access
  • Youth Suicide Prevention
  • Transportation Access
  • Affordable Housing/Homelessness
  • Support for the Needs of Seniors
