SGH Foundation



It is important for you to consider the mission of the Sistersville General Hospital Foundation. Our purpose is to raise financial support for specific projects, the growth and development of the Hospital, the purchase of improved technologies, as well as establishing a fund from which the Foundation can sponsor or assist other groups working for the support of the Hospital.

By investing in our community hospital, those of us who have the power to give have the power to invest in the quality of our future ~ the power to share in the priceless gift of life itself. Together we can do it ~ Together, We Can Build Our Future!


Establishment of a foundation is something Sistersville General Hospital administrators have discussed for more than a decade. Community leaders had a vision of helping our community hospital, Sistersville General Hospital.

  • To serve our people better
  • To find a path to a significant expansion of services
  • To procure the latest technological advances in medicine

The process began by establishing the corporation in 2003, qualifying it as a tax-exempt entity for gift-giving purposes.

Recognized as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity, the Foundation can accept donations from individuals, civic organizations, and businesses.

First-rate medical services carry an enormous cost, but the people of our community, and future generations, deserve the best we can give. In today’s changing healthcare world, the need for creative management of resources is greater than ever.

Sistersville General Hospital Foundation Is Ready To Meet That Challenge


The Together, We can Build Our Future campaign is designed to establish an endowment to support Sistersville General Hospital. Giving to the Sistersville General provides the opportunity for you to leave a legacy of caring to your community.

Contributions are welcome and important to achieving our goal. You can make a gift to the foundation for a designated purpose or for general use. Your contribution can be matched to gifts from others. Gifts can also be made upon the passing of a friend or loved one.

Our government encourages those who wish to help worthy causes. There may be deductions for income tax purposes and additional incentives with regard to estate taxes. Often, your decision to contribute to such an important fund will require the advice of a professional such as an accountant, lawyer, trust officer, or your tax advisor. We encourage everyone wishing to make a donation to seek advice from their own financial advisors.

If you would like to discuss a contribution, or if you have any questions, you may contact Diana Rice, Outreach Coordinator at (304) 447- 2454.


The Foundation simply could not exist without the generous support of our community. Your donation, regardless of the amount, is immeasurable in comparison to the needs of our local hospital.

We believe that the quality of care and compassion you receive at Sistersville General Hospital reflects on our community as a whole and its citizens—our very own neighbors, family, and friends. Because of that, we exist to promote the hospital in the ever advancing healthcare environment so they can provide you “A World of Caring…Close to Home”.

Charitable contributions such as yours help fund projects and services in our hospital that might not otherwise be possible. We can continue to support Sistersville General Hospital, because you continue to support us.
