In 2006, the employees of Northeast Health established the annual Employee Fund Drive. The drive provides an opportunity for employees and staff to demonstrate financial support through a charitable contribution. Since then, employees have contributed more than $900,000 to help support a variety of programs and services across the Northeast Health network.
Employees can designate their gift to the affiliate, service area or program of their choice and know that 100 percent will go to that specific area. In addition, staff members can choose to donate to:
Employee Crisis Assistance Fund – this fund provides confidential, emergency finanical assistance to employees who are faced with an unpreventable event or catastrophic loss in their lives resulting in unexpected financial hardship.
Charity Care Fund – assistance is provided through discounted or charity care to individuals who have inadequate or no healthcare coverage. Due to increasing economic hardships, support of this fund is critical.
An Affiliate’s Annual Fund – to help meet current operating needs and continue to help build and strengthen the quality and scope of programs and services.
For more information on the Employee Fund Drive, please call the Foundation at (518) 274-0190, or donate to the employee fund drive online.
