Help was there when she needed it

Stephanie Thomas, who works in Gunderson's Revenue Cycle-Commercial Insurance Billing and Follow-up, applied for a grant through the Employees Helping Employees Emergency Fund in mid-2018 when her mother passed away unexpectedly.

"Thanks to the generosity of Gundersen employees, I was able to give my mother the burial service she deserved. It was a very emotional time and with this help I was able to grieve instead of worrying about how I was going to afford everything."

"I am grateful to those who supported the Employees Helping Employees fund through the iGive campaign. Thanks to the generosity of Gundersen employees, I was able to give my mother the burial service she deserved. I am proud to work where helping each other is part of who we are."

The Employees Helping Employees Emergency Fund helps cover costs that an employee may struggle to pay during an emergency and helps alleviate some of the stress associated with difficult times.

This is just one of the many funds supported by Gundersen Medical Foundation. Through the iGive Employee Giving Campaign many choose to support their passion with donations to the Foundation for medical education, research, community health outreach, financial assistance for patients and staff, patient care and education, global healthcare partners and others.
