Providence Giving Campaign Support our patients, communities and fellow caregivers.
Our employees live the Providence Mission of caring for the poor and vulnerable every day – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We may not work every day, but the Mission shines bright in our hearts and minds daily. We carry it with us wherever we go.
To honor that commitment to the Mission, we are inviting employees to take the 24 / $7 Challenge by making a donation of $7 per paycheck for 24 pay periods. If everyone in Oregon took this challenge, we could raise over $3.65 million!
$7 x 24 paychecks x 22,000 employees = $3.65 million possible!

Take the 24/$7/365 Challenge. October 15 – November 30, 2018

Helping Hand Fund Your gift counts twice
Many caregivers choose to support the Helping Hand Fund at their local ministry. The Helping Hand program is administered by Catholic Charities and provides confidential, one-time financial and other resources to eligible caregivers who are experiencing a financial crisis or need temporary assistance.
This year we are thrilled to welcome back the Providence Federal Credit Union as the leader of our matching challenge. The first $55,000 raised for the Helping Hand Fund will be matched dollar for dollar. That means your gift counts twice!
In 2017, the fund provided about $200,000 in financial assistance to 220 caregivers. Unexpected illness and housing were among the most pressing needs last year.
The Giving Campaign is an annual fundraising drive organized by the 10 Providence Foundations in Oregon in which employees are encouraged to participate.
The Giving Campaign gives each employee an opportunity to give back and personally make a difference in the life of a patient, a co-worker, or a member of the community.
Although the formal campaign runs Oct. 15 through Nov. 30, caregivers can sign-up through Dec. 16, 2018.
As a not-for-profit health system, Providence relies on the fundraising efforts of its 10 Foundations in Oregon to provide programs and services that otherwise would not be available.
Each of the eight Providence medical centers in Oregon has a foundation team; in addition, Providence Benedictine Nursing Center and Providence Child Center also have foundations.
Your support of these programs and services helps give all patients access to the most advanced research, technology, services and programs.
Donations go directly to the Providence Foundation(s) and fund(s) that you specify.
You can split your gift among as many programs as you like.
If you donate to this year’s Helping Hand Fund, your gift goes directly to help eligible caregivers with one-time assistance during a time of need or financial crisis. Providence Federal Credit Union, for the second year in a row, is generously matching donations to the Helping Hand Fund up to $55,000.
Payroll Deduction: When you make your commitment, you’ll have the option to select payroll deduction to make giving easy. Your gift will be spread out across 24 pay periods during the year. If you choose to take the 24/$7 challenge, your $168 donation is given in $7 increments throughout 2019.
The first deduction will occur on January 11, 2019. The minimum deduction is $1 per pay period.
Credit card: If you prefer, you can make either a one-time or reoccurring gift by credit card.
Check: Checks are also accepted at all of our local foundation offices.
Online: Payroll deduction provides the easiest way to contribute to the Giving Campaign. You also may make a one-time gift online with a credit card. Donate online ›
Paper Form: You are also welcome to complete a paper form to sign up for the campaign. Forms may be mailed or dropped off at your local foundation office. Download forms ›

During the year, each ministry always has more needs than can be funded out of the annual operations budget. This can include things such as new technology/equipment, new buildings or expansions, and free or reduced cost of care for vulnerable patients. This “area of greatest need” fund helps fill in those gaps to better serve our patients and communities.
Each foundation’s board of trustees carefully determines where and how the “area of greatest need” gifts will be used within its specific ministry.
Making a contribution is a personal decision, and any amount is welcome and appreciated. All contributions to Providence Foundations are tax deductible to the extent provided by the law.
Your first deduction will occur on Jan. 11, 2019 and will continue for a total of 24 pay periods.
The minimum deduction is $1 per pay period.
United Way provides the ability for employees to support other nonprofit organizations through payroll deduction. If you would like to sign up to give this way, please download a paper form and return it to your local foundation office.
Donations directed to a Providence Foundation via the form or online do not go through United Way.
Supporting United Way
Providence Health & Services has a long history of supporting United Way. Many organizations associated with United Way receive both direct and indirect support from Providence. This continued partnership is important as many of the organizations supported by United Way have a connection to Providence patients.
Please consider making a gift to United Way as a part of the Providence Giving Campaign. You may support the listed local initiative or make a gift to your favorite nonprofit through United Way. Our partnership with them makes it easy to support other organizations through payroll deduction.
If you would like to make a gift to United Way, please complete a paper pledge form and return it to your local foundation office.
