What is the employee giving campaign?

NCHS is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation.  Five years ago NCHS started an employee giving campaign to offer employees a way to support our patients and programs.

If you have participated in the employee giving campaign, thank you for your continued support.  When those of us closest to NCHS show our pride and dedication by making a financial gift, it demonstrates to individuals and organizations in our community that NCHS is worthy of their support, too.

When is this year’s campaign?

This is a very exciting year and a new chapter in the history of NCHS.  As we look for innovative new ways to increase patient access, and prepare to open a new Ramona Health Center, we increase our ability to serve that many more patients in our expanding community.

This year’s campaign will run through 2019 (January – December).  We encourage every employee to make a personal contribution. Donate here.  Philanthropy touches nearly every patient in one way or another.  Your donation – of any amount – will make a difference for the families you care so deeply about.  For the hundreds of employees who participate, the employee giving campaign serves as a wonderful source of pride.

I already give so much, why should I contribute financially?

When those of us closest to NCHS show our pride and dedication by making a financial gift, it demonstrates to families and organizations in our community that NCHS is worthy of their support, too.  Making a donation – of any amount – is just one more powerful way you can give our patients and families a little more hope and support.  It’s not about how much we give – every dollar makes an impact.

Many of the programs and services that impact our patients’ experience are only made available because of donor support.  While the sacrifices you make to our organization are beyond measure, as a nonprofit we rely on the financial support of donors to continue to provide the extraordinary care we are known for.

One hundred percent of gifts donated to NCHS directly support care for thousands of our patients each year, as well as groundbreaking advances such as Telemedicine, and Behavioral Health integration to the care we provide.  Every dollar makes a difference to our patients.

Many organizations ask for my support, why should I donate to NCHS?

Making a voluntary philanthropic gift shows that extraordinary care truly does start with you and is another way to strengthen NCHS.

Giving back to NCHS sends a powerful statement to your colleagues and our community.  Corporations, foundations, and individuals consider our employee participation rate when prioritizing their philanthropic passions and deciding to award NCHS with funding.

We rely on the generosity of the community so that we may continue to provide outstanding care.  Each year, contributions from hundreds of individuals support the work you do.  Join the community and your fellow colleagues in supporting NCHS today.

I participated in the 2018 employee giving campaign.  Was the 2018 campaign successful?

YES!  Over 40% of employees participated in the 2018 employee giving campaign.  Our goal for 2019 is to increase the percentage of employee participation to 45%.

Is participation in the employee giving campaign mandatory?

No.  Financial contributions are completely voluntary.

Does my giving have any influence on my performance review?

No.  Giving has no influence on any performance evaluation.
