Ivinson Cares

The IMH Foundation is set to host this year’s annual employee giving campaign.

Each year, the IMH Foun­da­tion hosts Ivinson’s employ­ee cam­paign, giv­ing employ­ees like you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to give to the caus­es that you care about. This year we are part­ner­ing with employ­ees through­out the hos­pi­tal to cre­ate a cam­paign that sup­ports our hos­pi­tal and our community.

Through­out the month, staff from depart­ments through­out the hos­pi­tal will meet togeth­er to coor­di­nate our two employ­ee cam­paign events, which will be held on Mon­day, Sep­tem­ber 24, and Thurs­day, Sep­tem­ber 27. Each event will not only be an oppor­tu­ni­ty to give but also to serve orga­ni­za­tions based in Laramie. 

Our Sep­tem­ber 24 event will fea­ture a The Sug­ar Mouse cup­cake walk. The Foundation’s pur­chase of these local­ly made cup­cakes will pro­vide a non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tion sup­port for res­cued child vic­tims of traf­fick­ing in Cam­bo­dia. Our Sep­tem­ber 27 event will fea­ture a ser­vice project to sup­port Amy’s Kids, a non­prof­it that pro­vides funds and sup­plies to a school in Kenya and was found­ed by Can­cer Cen­ter direc­tor, Amy Smith.

You will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to give in the fol­low­ing ways:

1. Donat­ing to Foun­da­tion fund­ing categories

These cat­e­gories include the Tech­nol­o­gy and Inno­va­tion fund, the Cap­i­tal Con­struc­tion fund and the Area of Great­est Need fund.

2. Donat­ing to employ­ee scholarships

Schol­ar­ships include the Sandy Joy – Kris Kram­schus­ter Schol­ar­ship, the Inge Townsend Nurs­ing Schol­ar­ship, the Employ­ee Edu­ca­tion fund, the Employ­ee Well­ness fund and Employ­ee Finan­cial Assis­tance. All of these schol­ar­ships sup­port your cowork­ers at Ivinson.

3. Pur­chas­ing tick­ets to Foun­da­tion fundrais­ing events

Buy your tick­ets in advance to show your sup­port through Foun­da­tion fundrais­ing events includ­ing La Grande Fleur, the Sports­man Raf­fle and the Health Links Golf Tournament. 

As you con­sid­er giv­ing to the employ­ee cam­paign, remem­ber that many of these funds sup­port employ­ees like you. Our schol­ar­ship funds sup­port train­ing and edu­ca­tion for Ivin­son staff, and the Foun­da­tion fund­ing cat­e­gories ensure employ­ees have the equip­ment that they need to pro­vide state-of-the-art care. 

Beyond the events and par­tic­i­pa­tion prizes that come with the cam­paign each year, this is a unique oppor­tu­ni­ty to pay­roll deduct any gift that you make to the Foun­da­tion. Last year, 32% of Ivin­son employ­ees par­tic­i­pat­ed in the employ­ee cam­paign. This year, we hope to reach 50% par­tic­i­pa­tion. We know that each dona­tion is not only a ben­e­fit to our hos­pi­tal but also an oppor­tu­ni­ty to become uni­fied in a com­mon goal to improve patient care at Ivinson.
