The recent iGive Gundersen Employee Giving Campaign confirmed what we already knew—Gundersen employees are some of the most generous people.
Gundersen Medical Foundation set a lofty goal of 20 percent Gundersen employee participation for iGive and by campaign's end, the goal was exceed with 22 percent participation. That represents hundreds of employees who chose to give financial support to a fund through Gundersen Medical Foundation that speaks to their passion. People like Zach Johnson, graphic designer, Business Develop and Marketing, who says, "I truly believe in the work the Foundation does and it is a privilege and honor to help give a voice to the Foundation's cause."
"Our 22 percent participation level is particularly remarkable considering the national average for employee giving is 12 percent according to Advisory Board. And, donations are still coming in," reports Amanda Acklin associate director of annual support. "By investing in Gundersen, our employees are making a difference in the work we do, the patients we care for and the communities where we live."
Amanda adds, "There was a lot of engagement with employees choosing various funds they were passionate about. Our newest fund, Employees Helping Employees, got a good boost, showing that staff care not only about patients, but about one another, too."
If you'd like to make a gift, you can still help enrich every life with a donation to your choice of funds through the Foundation. Simply go to gundersenhealth.org/iGive.
