Keystone Hall responds quickly and effectively to New Hampshire families in need and helps to resolve the ongoing struggles community members with substance use disorders face every day — replacing homelessness, poverty, addiction, mental illness, hunger, unemployment and disease with hope for the future. You can help provide a wide range of substance use disorder treatment and prevention programs in New Hampshire that can save the lives for adults, children, and families in need. Each year, your donations provide:
- More than 1,000 community members with access to life-saving substance use disorder treatment through Keystone Hall’s 28-day and 90-day residential treatment programs, and numerous outpatient and intensive outpatient programs
- The ability for pregnant and parenting women to receive long-term, clinically-intensive substance use disorder treatment and recovery supports while living with the children at Keystone Hall’s Cynthia Day Family Center, the only program of its kind in New Hampshire
- A significant reduction in recidivism amongst individuals recently released from correctional institutions through the Access to Recovery’s Intensive Outpatient Substance Use Disorder Treatment Program at Keystone Hall. Keystone’s graduates experience about a 10% recidivism rate, compared to NH’s state average of 52%.
- Reunification of families through Project Recovering Lives, a program that works in conjunction with NH’s Department of Children, Youth, and Families
In simpler terms, you help create small miracles every day: helping a mother’s love for her child to become stronger than her addiction, and that keeping that child out of foster care; giving a father the resources needed to become healthy and confident, and return to work to provide for his family; and creating a future for a teenager, ensuring that she graduates high school and goes to college. All of us have been touched by the disease of addiction in some way. With your help, families in crisis can receive the care they need, creating a better community for us all.
Through many options to donate , you can give the gift of treatment to some of New Hampshire’s most vulnerable community members. On behalf of all the more than 1,300 low-income NH community members in need that rely on Keystone Hall each year for a second chance at a life worth living, we thank you, our donors. Without the support of individuals, local businesses, and foundations, none of this would be possible.

Make a gift that costs nothing during your lifetime: gift planning is a simple yet powerful way to impact the lives of NH residents in need well into the future, while creating a lasting legacy. There are many ways to accomplish this, described below. However, we encourage you to email or call us at 603-882-3616 with questions and discuss these options with your estate planner or attorney.
Wills and Bequests
You can make a provision in your will or trust fund for a Partnership agency, set to your specifications.
It is important to use very specific language. Suggestions for language to use when making this provision vary, depending on your wishes. An estate planner or an attorney can help you. But, here are some examples:
- Bequest of cash: “I bequeath the sum of $_______ to Greater Nashua Council on Alcoholism, Inc/ Keystone Hall, Nashua, NH.”
- Bequest of a percent of the estate: “I devise and bequeath ___% of the remainder and residue of property owned at my death, whether real or personal, and wherever located to Greater Nashua Council on Alcoholism, Inc/ Keystone Hall, Nashua, NH.”
- Contingent Bequest: “If my (example: brother John Doe) survives me, I devise and bequeath ___% of the remainder and residue of property owned at my death, whether real or personal, and wherever located to (example: John Doe). If (example: John Doe) does not survive me, then I devise and bequeath ____% of my residuary estate, whether real or personal property and wherever located to Greater Nashua Council on Alcoholism, Inc/ Keystone Hall, Nashua, NH.”
Gift of Insurance
A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to us. If your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors consider making a gift and help further our mission.
Charitable Gift Annuities
A charitable gift annuity is a contract between you and our organization.
- You transfer property to a Partnership for Successful Living member-agency. In exchange, Agency pays you fixed income for life.
- The fixed income can be significant, depending on your age.
- A part of your income stream may be tax-free. You will receive a charitable deduction for your gift and create impact and change in the lives of those we serve.
Types of Assets You May Give
- If you decide to fund your gift annuity with cash, a significant portion of the annuity income will be tax-free.
- You may make a gift of your appreciated securities to fund a gift annuity and avoid a portion of the capital gains tax.
Current Gift Annuity
If you’d like to receive current income, you may transfer property in exchange for Keystone Hall’s promise to pay you a fixed income beginning as early as this year. You will receive a current income tax charitable deduction for the value of your gift to Keystone Hall.
Deferred Gift Annuity
If you are not ready to begin receiving income until a future date, such as when you retire, you can establish a deferred gift annuity, receive a current charitable income tax deduction and receive payments at a designated future time. Best of all, because you deferred your payments, your annual payment will be higher than with a current annuity.
There are many kinds of charitable trusts and variations. It is important to speak with your estate planner or attorney when deciding whether this kind of planned giving is right for you. We can help answer any questions or concerns too.
