Your Financial Gift Supports the Home’s Mission
Mark Wentworth Home’s mission is to provide the seniors we serve with the support necessary to maintain their individual strengths and capacities; that they, along with their families and friends, have trust in our desire and ability to help them succeed; and that all members of our staff fully embrace the belief that they are greatly respected and appreciated for playing an important part in this effort.
Since its inception the Mark Wentworth Home’s mission has been sustained by the generosity of local philanthropists whose donations have made care and residence possible for many Seacoast seniors. Today, financial gifts to the Home provide stability and opportunity for growth.
Here are a few of the ways in which your financial support could make the biggest impact:
Cash Donations to the MWH Gift Fund
Cash donations to the MWH Gift Fund are unrestricted contributions made to the Home to offset regular, on-going expenses, including those related to the financial support of residents who can no longer afford to support themselves. Unrestricted gifts help maintain the high quality of services that MWH residents have come to expect, and give MWH the ability to respond quickly to emerging opportunities.
A Memorial Gift is a wonderful way to pay tribute to a Mark Wentworth Home Resident while supporting the Home’s mission. Should you wish to include information for friends and family in an obituary, here is suggested wording:
In lieu of flowers please consider making a memorial gift in honor of [name] to the Mark Wentworth Home, 346 Pleasant Street, Portsmouth, NH 03801
MWH Employee Development Fund
We choose to invest in our largest asset: our people. The Home’s human resource practices include providing opportunity for professional growth to all employees. To support a highly skilled staff in this way, the Home relies on donations to the Employee Development Fund to cover the costs of programs such as conferences, workshops, computer aided training courses, and recognition of achievements.
Since our employees are not permitted to accept gifts or money directly, donating to the Employee Development Fund helps us to spread your act of kindness throughout the year.

Consider the Future of Mark Wentworth Home
Plan ahead for the greatest impact
You can provide a sustainable future for the Home and its programs by including the Mark Wentworth Home Gift Fund as a beneficiary of your Will or revocable trust, or designating the Fund as the beneficiary of your retirement plan, insurance policy, donor advised fund, or private foundation.
A planned gift of this kind is called a bequest, which offers flexibility in that you are able to retain the use of your assets during your lifetime, and you can make changes at any time to reflect your philanthropic and financial goals.
Should you wish to include the Home’s Gift Fund in your plans, here is some suggested wording:
I give, devise and bequeath to the Mark Wentworth Gift Fund, __________ dollars ($_________ ) for the general purposes of the Mark Wentworth Home.
I give, devise and bequeath to the Mark Wentworth Home Gift Fund, __________ percent (______%) of my residuary estate for the benefit of the Mark Wentworth Home.
