Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why is an associate campaign important?

Your gift sends a powerful message of belief in our Mission beyond your everyday work and inspires others to support our work, too.

Why is my gift more important than ever?

The pandemic has brought to light new technological and clinical needs in our hospitals. The economic downturn has challenged our most vulnerable patient populations.

How does my gift impact my community?

Your donations make it possible for the Foundation to support projects and initiatives focused on great health care for the communities we serve and help for our most vulnerable patient populations. Funds remain local to help meet local needs for patient care and community investment.

How much should I give?

Please consider a gift at a level that is comfortable and meaningful to you.

Can I donate the value of Personal Time Off (PTO)?

Non-exempt (hourly paid) associates may donate PTO. PTO can only be donated during the Give for Good campaign in September. PTO policy no longer allows exempt (salaried) associates to donate PTO.

When does payroll deduction start?

One-time payroll deductions and PTO donations take place in Nov. 2023; ongoing payroll deductions will begin the first pay period of 2024.

What if I donated earlier this year?

If you have made a new gift(s) in 2023, your gift will be counted in the Give for Good Campaign and you may receive Called to Shine points based on your giving level. We encourage you to pledge your 2024 gift during this year’s Give for Good Campaign.

What if I have an existing ongoing recurring gift?

If you signed up in a prior campaign for an ongoing recurring gift, you do not need to renew your support. However, you may take this opportunity to change your gift. Any changes you make will replace your current gift.
