From a family member of a Crotched Mountain Community Care client in
“Financial assistance meant the world to our family. With all the other medical costs we have associated with cerebral palsy, this unexpected situation was more than we could cover. The pain was keeping her up at night and affecting her ability to chew. She wasn’t eating well. She hated to ask for help, but she really needed relief. The staff at Crotched Mountain Community Care was wonderful and told us that they received a grant that might be able to help us. We appreciate the generosity of the Roger R. and Theresa S. Thompson Endowment Fund and are so grateful for the assistance.”
NH Governor Maggie Hassan on the opening of the Children's Museum of NH STEAM Innovation Lab:
“Education is the ladder to opportunity. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to the Children’s Museum [for] making this space possible. [It] is going to make us stronger, and it is going to really make sure that we are preparing our children to be the leaders of tomorrow.”
Strawbery Banke Museum President & CEO Lawrence J. Yerdon on the creation of the "Port of Portsmouth" exhibit:
“This important permanent exhibit at Strawbery Banke resides in new exhibition space in the Thales Yeaton House, created thanks to a major gift from the Montrone Family and grants from the Roger R. and Theresa S. Thompson Foundation Fund, The Davis Family Foundation and the anonymous donor, help Strawbery Banke Museum realize Joseph Sawtelle’s vision of creating a maritime history exhibition permanently, and rightly, housed in Portsmouth.”
Reflections from the 2016 13th Annual Walk for Sight for the NH Association for the Blind:
About 275 walkers ventured through historic downtown Concord, spreading the message that anyone can live and thrive with vision loss. Though multiple new elements were added this year, one key aspect remained the same: our largest fundraising event would not be possible without our generous sponsors, numerous volunteers, and enthusiastic walkers, as well as the many members of our board and staff. Together, we raised almost $85,000 for vital vision rehabilitation programs and services. Thanks to everyone who made this event a resounding success! for pictures and more about this year's Walk, click here.
Jane Bard, President of the Children's Museum of New Hampshire.
“The Thompson Endowment Fund has provided very generous support to us throughout our 30-year history, and we are grateful that they are helping us meet increased demands for the [STEAM] program. This grant will bolster our ability to build capacity to manage a larger number of program partners and enhance the Funded Admission Program.”
Denise Doleac, co-founder of the Children's Museum of New Hampshire:
"When Mrs. Thompson was first introduced to the Children’s Museum 15 years ago, she expressed a deep concern for the welfare of families and, specifically, children who were in need. The Funded Membership Program honors her legacy, and we are extremely grateful to the Thompson Endowment Fund as one of our leading supporters through the years.”
Erin Rice, Pine Tree Society Marketing & Development Director:
“The impact Mrs. Thompson has made to the people served by the Pine Tree Society has been, and continues to be, transformational."
