A: Providence Health Care Foundation supports program, equipment, patient services and staff education that is not covered in the capital budget. By giving to the campaign, you send a powerful message to our community—we not only work at Providence, we invest in world-class health care in our community.
During our annual campaign we ask caregivers to consider a personal investment toward their passion at whatever financial level is meaningful to them.
A: The campaign runs from March 15 to April 15. The first payroll deduction is May 4.
A: No. Financial contributions are 100% voluntary and 100% appreciated.
A: You tell us! You may direct your support to the Area of Greatest Need (unrestricted dollars that support a variety of needs as determined by the Foundation’s local Board of Directors) or to an area or program that is important to you:
A: Payroll deductions provide the easiest way to contribute. An online pledge form is available here, or you may make a gift online via credit card here.
A: 100% of your gift to Providence Health Care Foundation goes to the program(s) you designate.
A: Only you can make that decision. Your participation is important at whatever level is personally meaningful to you (we do have a $2 minimum donation for each fund). Some employees choose to pledge a specific amount at one time, while others opt to select an amount for a bi-weekly payroll deduction.
A: You might be surprised to learn about equipment or educational opportunities in your own department that are funded with foundation dollars! Strong caregiver participation states loudly to our community that together we are invested in Providence. And ultimately, giving feels good. Rest assured, every dollar stays local and goes to support the fund(s) you selected.
New this year: All donors will receive a “badge charm” that they can attach to their Providence name badge. This charm will make them eligible for various “pop-up” events throughout the year. That might include a “jeans day,” the opportunity for a free frozen yogurt, and other fun rewards. Donors are also eligible for drawings for free PTO days and parking spots!
A: Absolutely! Your payroll deductions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
A: If you elect to use the paper, rather than the online form, you may return it to Providence Health Care Foundation, 101 W. 1st Ave., Spokane 99204; or fax it to 509-474-4813.
