Be a part of BGH history by adding your name to our new Donor Wall!

Bonner General Health is a nonprofit, critical access hospital and a healthcare system that relies on local support to meet its financial needs. This year, the funds raised at our virtual Heart Ball will be used to renovate the Emergency Department. With this fundraising campaign, we are also launching our new donor wall in the Emergency Department’s waiting room. Donors who contribute $5,000 or more will be recognized by name, with our largest donors being most prominent.
Being a part of the Donor Wall is an exciting way to have long-lasting recognition in your hometown hospital! Please contact or click HERE to donate.
Thank you for your support!
