Reflections of Fifty Years:

Giving Challenge Makes History!

Giving Challenge Graphic


As part of its 50th Anniversary celebration, Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice successfully met the 50 Year Giving Challenge by securing $50,000+ in new/increased annual gifts this year. By doing so, an additional $50,000 matching gift was awarded to us by the extraordinary anonymous donor who issued “the challenge”!


A very different giving challenge was underway during our 1st anniversary year. In 1970, a fund drive took place to raise the $2,625 needed for the Town of New London to participate in the newly founded Association, known then as Kearsarge Visiting Nurse Association.

What a difference 50 years makes!
