The NVH Foundation has continuing annual funds to provide for projects at North Valley Hospital.
Teddy Bear Fund
A stuffed teddy bear or animal is provided to each child admitted to the hospital, or to their siblings or other youth in the facility who would benefit from the comfort of a soft stuffed animal.
As the fund grows, other initiatives could be implemented related to providing comfort and care to the youth we serve in the hospital. Currently NVH requires about $10,000 annually
to continue this program.
Circle of Friends
This fund exists to provide emergency relief and support to employees in times of crisis. There is an application process and review of need.
As the fund increases, the frequency of approval and level of funding for each request could be increased. The employees themselves contribute to this fund through participation in once-a-month jeans days and payroll deductions supporting the NVH Foundation. The annual goal for this program is currently $5,000
Continuing Education Assistance
The NVH Foundation Board believes it is important to work to support the employees of North Valley Hospital. They are the front lines providing Planetree patient-centered care.
We work to fund the program to provide tuition assistance to employees who are pursuing higher education or additional training that improves their skills or prepares them to advance in their field at North Valley Hospital. The current annual goal for this program is $5,000
