MASH - Memorial Annually Supports Health
Every year, Memorial Health System colleagues have the opportunity to make a difference in our organization by giving back through MASH. Whether big or small, the combined gifts have a great impact on Memorial’s colleagues and the people and communities we serve.
Every donation makes a difference in 2019
Nearly $252,000 was raised during our annual colleague giving campaign thanks to 794 colleagues, including 64 first-time donors.
All donations to MASH stay within Memorial Health System. This year, 49 percent of donors restricted their donations to a specific department, unit, fund or affiliate. Here are the totals for the most popular restricted donations:
- Nursing Excellence Fund: $14,573
- Cancer and Breast Cancer Patient Assistance funds: $13,463
- Memorial Behavioral Health: $11,907
- SystemCare: $7,072
- Compassion Leave: $6,383
More than $127,000 was left unrestricted and will be used in 2020 to fund grants awarded by the Memorial Medical Center Foundation to support patient care, education and clinical research throughout Memorial.
The 2019 campaign, The Magical World of MASH, started May 1 and ended May 31. Photos from MASH donor events can be viewed at Facebook.com/MemorialMedicalFoundation.
