POTSDAM -- The Canton-Potsdam Hospital Foundation recently celebrated a 1,000-donor milestone.

In 2016, a record number of donors chose to support the foundation.

“This milestone represents so much more than simply the number of people who have given,” said Rich VanLeuven, chair of the CPH Foundation Board. “It exemplifies the commitment of our community to ensure excellent healthcare is provided for our families, friends and neighbors.”

Donations to the foundation help CPH to invest in new technologies and life-saving medical equipment, to launch programs that improve the health and well-being of patients and to move forward with new and updated facilities to accommodate expansion and growth.

“Every donor is important and every donation counts,” said April Grant, executive director of the CPH Foundation. “To each and every one of you— thank you for making high quality health care a priority in our community.

Those interested in supporting patient care in their community may contact April Grant at 315-261-5418. Donations can be mailed to the Foundation at 50 Leroy Street, Potsdam, NY 13676 or online at
