Give to Backus

Give to Backus

Your gift to Backus is a gift to the entire community. We are always grateful for our donors’ support. Our benefactors make sure Backus stays on course.

At Backus, we rely on our donors to help chart the course of healthcare for eastern Connecticut. Last year — even as the national recession tightened its grip — donors helped keep healthcare moving forward. Our community provided $1.1 million in charitable gifts this past year. To generate those funds through hospital services would require additional revenues of $28 million, at a 4% operating margin.

Why I Give


Backus Hospital’s Primary Stroke Center is the reason why my wife, Erin is still here with me today. Her recovery has been absolutely amazing and I credit Backus staff for the comprehensive, compassionate care they provided immediately after her stroke and through her recovery.
