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.
Memorial Employees Donate Record-Breaking $301,000 to Annual Fundraising Campaign.
Thanks to 920 employees, including 100 first-time donors, Memorial’s annual employee giving campaign raised $301,352. All donations given to MASH stay within Memorial. This year, 55 percent of donors restricted their donation to a specific department, unit, fund or affiliate. Here are the totals for the most popular restricted donations:

More than $131,000 was left unrestricted and will be used in 2018 to fund grants awarded by the Foundation to support patient care, education and clinical research throughout Memorial Health System. The 2017 campaign, Join The Team, started April 17 and ended May 14. Visit the Foundation’s Facebook page to see pictures from our donor events.
