About the Nathan Littauer Foundation


The Nathan Littauer Foundation directs all philanthropic activities that support Nathan Littauer Hospital and Nursing Home and its Family of Health Services. By making a charitable contribution to the Foundation, you make a direct and lasting impact on the community. Your support enables Littauer to continue its mission to provide safe and high-quality wellness services and improve the health of our communities in a safe, contemporary environment, both now and in the future.

As an independent non-profit health care organization Nathan Littauer truly belongs to our community.

It all started with philanthropy…

In 1891, when Lucius N. Littauer and his mother, Harriet, donated the land and funds for a hospital, they had but two requests: first, that the Hospital be named for Nathan Littauer, Lucius’ father; and second, that the community raise $10,000 in support of the Hospital. The hospital was started for the community, by the community. Thus began the fundraising tradition for our community hospital.

The legacy continues… More than 90 years later, in December 1982,  the Nathan Littauer Foundation was estalbished formalizing fundraising activities.  Current fundraising activites support our unique and irreplaceable Hospital, Nursing Home, nine outpatient centers, wellness center and outpatient surgery center. Contributions from individuals, businesses, foundations, grateful patients and their families have helped to keep Littauer’s services, technologies, computerization and facilities current, allowing us to offer better and safer patient care. Your gift, no matter the size, makes a difference and continues the tradition of support that Lucius Littauer first asked of our community over 122 years ago.
