The Promise Starts with Me

As an employee of Rush Copley, you make a difference every day. The Employee Giving Campaign – The Promise Starts with Me – allows you to make a difference in another way. Your gift through the campaign directly benefits our patients and fellow employees, and you can choose which programs you support from a list of 14 Rush Copley programs and three community partner organizations.

Your gift can help support exercise programs for patients with movement disorders or education programs for individuals impacted by a cancer diagnosis. Your gift can provide vouchers for fresh fruits and vegetables for patients who can’t afford a healthy diet, car seats and diapers for pediatric patients from needy families, or an AED for a local nonprofit – which may save someone’s life. Check out the list of programs and know that whichever program you support, your gift will make a difference – 100 percent of your donation goes directly to the program and most of these programs would not exist without philanthropy.

Giving to the campaign is voluntary but we hope you will choose to make a donation because your contribution is needed. You can make a difference!

The campaign runs from December 2 through December 13. To make a donation now, complete the fillable donation form, print it out and return it to the Foundation office. Pledges are payable using cash, check, credit card or payroll deduction. Alternatively, you may donate online using your credit card. Thank you for your generosity!

Festival of Wreaths

Join us in the main lobby on Tuesday, December 3, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. for the Festival of Wreaths reception. When you donate to the campaign by December 13, you will receive five free raffle tickets – use them to enter to win the wreath of your choice. If you give on or before December 3, you will receive ten free raffle tickets! Additional raffle tickets are available for purchase for $2 each in The Glass Promenade Gift Shop. The raffle entry box is located by the front desk in the main lobby. Raffle tickets will be drawn and wreath winners announced on Monday, December 16. The wreaths will remain on display through December 18, when the winners can take them home.
