Your help is needed to reach this year's goal of 25 percent employee participation in the iGive Employee Giving Campaign. Jennifer Tucker will be among the many Gundersen employees who will say, "iGive."

Supporting patients and staff in Renal Dialysis as a nurse educator, Jennifer Tucker, MA, RN, knows first-hand the value in donating to the Renal Dialysis Fund through Gundersen Medical Foundation. "I see the impact of using these dollars to support our patients and to provide educational opportunities for our staff."

Jennifer adds, "I also support the Nursing Education fund and this year for iGive, I will be giving to the new Lois's Loose Change Fund, to help honor the work my mom has done to help establish Care Coordination and for her continuing work."

Like the Gundersen family, healthcare is a family tradition for Jennifer. Her mother, Lois Tucker, RN, was Gundersen's first RN care coordinator when the program launched more than 15 years ago and continues to be a driving force for the program. Lois's Loose Change Fund is a new way to support the nearly two dozen Gundersen care coordinators who work with patients with complex and chronic medical issues.

"The iGive campaign is a small way to collectively make a large impact," Jennifer explains. "The very first time I donated to the Foundation was when I was in nursing school and working part time at Gundersen as a certified nursing assistant (CNA). As a student, I didn't have a lot—I gave less than $10 a paycheck—but over three years it totaled more than $600."

Every gift, no matter the size, is appreciated. Like Jennifer, you can set up a recurring gift through payroll deduction, or if you prefer, make a one-time donation. It's easy to do. Simply go to and fuel your passion with a gift to a fund that aligns with your interests.
