Why make a planned gift to Cooley Dickinson?

  • Your gift will help Cooley Dickinson Health Care fulfill its mission
  • You will enjoy a wide variety of tax benefits
  • You will give back to the causes that mean the most to you

A bequest from the estate of Caleb Cooley Dickinson established Cooley Dickinson Hospital, the only hospital in Hampshire County.  We opened our doors on New Years Day 1886 with 12 beds, a doctor’s chamber, and one operating room.  Now affiliated with Massachusetts General Hospital, Cooley Dickinson provides world-class medical care within our community hospital setting.  However, continued funding is imperative to maintain such excellence.  Today’s technology and its costs far exceed Caleb’s original plan for his hospital.

In the more than 130 years that have followed Caleb’s bequest, many other members of our community have created gifts from their estate plans to continue the vision for Cooley Dickinson Hospital.  We hope that you will consider creating your own legacy gift to Cooley Dickinson and join us in delivering the compassionate, personalized patient care our community deserves.

Pam Acheson, Director of Planned Giving, would be pleased to meet with you and your financial advisor(s) to discuss the giving plans that best meet your financial and legacy goals.  Please reach out to Pam at (413) 582-2687 or
