In a testament to employee generosity, Group Health staff exceeded the fundraising goals for the 2002 Foundation campaign held in May. During the campaign, 1,224 employees gave or pledged $270,058, representing a 16 percent increase in donors and 26 percent growth in dollars raised.
The staff designated their gifts to support 1) the Foundation’s grantmaking programs, 2) specific Group Health departments, and 3) endowed funds that will ensure a continued stream of interest income for the Foundation.
“The message speaks loud and clear: Group Health’s employees remain committed to the care we provide to our members and the care we provide to our communities. Group Health has a terrific staff and I am grateful for their inspirational generosity,” said Laura Rehrmann, Foundation president and CEO.
