Successful 2009 Employee Giving Campaign Ends

Updated: 5/12/2009

Generosity lays groundwork for the future.



By every standard, the first-ever employee giving campaign called “Charity Begins At Home”, was a success:
• 661 new pledges totaling $75,524
• $6,700 in straight cash gifts
• Great momentum for next year

In commenting on the internal fundraising campaign, Elsie Dawe, Foundations Executive Director said, “Employee support of Kaleida and its mission shows our community and funding organizations the belief that we are the best healthcare provider in WNY. I offer a grateful ‘thank you’ to the employees who made their pledge and with the hope that our campaign will grow to 100% participation in the future.”
