Nurturing Dreams… Transforming Lives…
It’s what we do every day, with people of all ages, from all walks of life, and especially caring for the most vulnerable among us in our local communities right here in the Upper Valley and Sullivan County. Mental illness and substance use disorders don’t discriminate. They impact people everywhere…at work, at home, in schools, and across state lines. Since 1977, West Central clinicians and staff have worked tirelessly to help nurture people’s dreams and transform their lives for the better.
Please support our work by clicking on the online giving link below, or by making a gift of securities or a legacy gift.

Memorial and Tribute Gifts are a wonderful way to remember and to honor a family member or a friend. You may note the designation on your check or in correspondence to us.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of securities are an easy and often tax-wise way to make a charitable contribution to WCBH. The full market value of the securities qualifies as a charitable contribution deduction. If you wish to make a gift of appreciated securities, please call the Development Office at 603-448-0126, ext 2100 for more information.
Leaving a bequest to West Central allows you to make a gift without diminishing the assets available to you during your lifetime. A bequest is a simple statement in your will designating a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a designation of a specific piece of property.
Retirement and Life Insurance Plans
You may wish to consider naming West Central as a beneficiary of your plan. Gifts to charitable organizations from a traditional IRA can count toward the annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) required by the IRS. Consult your financial advisor about your IRA and Required Minimum Distribution.
There are many other forms of Legacy Giving:
- Gift Annuities

Each of these gifts may provide tax benefits to the donor and often can enable the donor to provide greater benefits to their heirs. Please contact us for more information, or consult your financial advisor or attorney for specific advice.
