MASH - Memorial Annually Supports Health
Every year, Memorial Health System employees have the opportunity to make a difference in our organization through philanthropy during the MASH campaign. Whether big or small, the combined gifts have a great impact on Memorial’s employees and the people and communities we serve.
Every Donation Makes a Difference in 2018
More than $288,600 was raised during our annual employee giving campaign thanks to 953 employees, including 119 first-time donors.
All donations to MASH stay within Memorial Health System. This year, 52 percent of donors restricted their donations to a specific department, unit, fund or affiliate. Here are the totals for the most popular restricted donations:
- Memorial Behavioral Health: $18,681
- Nursing Excellence Fund: $15,184
- Cancer and Breast Cancer Patient Assistance funds: $13,812
- Sharing Wishes Fund: $9,338
- SystemCare: $8,651
- Other restricted funds: $91,982
More than $130,000 was left unrestricted and will be used in 2019 to fund grants awarded by the Memorial Medical Center Foundation to support patient care, education and clinical research throughout Memorial.
The 2018 campaign, Derby Days of MASH, started May 1 and ended May 31. Photos from MASH donor events can be viewed at Facebook.com/MemorialMedicalFoundation.
