Jacky Lam, anesthesiologist assistant, not only donates to Global Partners, a service of Gundersen Medical Foundation, he is an eye witness to how his gifts are changing lives.
"I have been involved with Global Partners since 2014 as a trip volunteer," says Jacky. "I like the approach Global Partners takes on community wellness, both here in the Coulee Region and abroad. It not only provides short-term medical relief, it also focuses on long-term self-sustainability by providing local staff training and community health education."
You are encouraged to join Jacky and many other Gundersen staff in supporting Global Partners—or any fund of your choosing—during the iGive Employee Giving Campaign, May 1-31. Your help is needed to reach this year's goal of 25 percent employee participation. The potential to help even more people is significant, so please consider making a gift.
Jacky understands the value in giving. "Global Partners mobilizes community members right here in our workplace to serve other communities in developing countries," he explains. "I went on a Global Partners mission trip to Ethiopia in February with a team of medical, dental and community volunteers. Our team provided health screening to more than 900 elementary school students in eight days. Without the continuing support of Global Partners and its volunteers, this community would have a very difficult time accessing dental and medical care. Global Partners is truly making a difference in that region."
Besides Global Partners, Jacky and his wife also support Steppin' Out in Pink through the Foundation. That's the beauty of iGive. You can fuel your passion and give to the fund or funds that align with your interests. Set up a recurring gift through payroll deduction or make a one-time donation. It's easy to do. Simply go to gundersenhealth.org/igive.
