The Memorial Hospital Foundation

The Memorial Hospital Foundation is a Partner Fund of the Initiative Foundation led by an advisory board of local volunteers who have made a commitment to strengthen our communities.

The original Memorial Hospital Foundation was founded in 1992. Our partnership and transfer to the Initiative Foundation occurred in 2017 to better serve our communities and our volunteer board. Our vision is to see a healthy and vibrant population in the greater Cambridge area!

As local volunteers, we know our neighbors, share your interests and are invested in the future of our community. Our partnership with the Initiative Foundation combines local knowledge and leadership with professional expertise and guidance to identify community needs, serve donors and manage our investments.

By promoting local philanthropy, we strive to strengthen our community by connecting people, resources and needs. Our endowment fund is a charitable investment account in which the principal contributions are never spent; only the earnings provide a flexible, dependable funding stream to support important projects.
