WakeMed Gives Employee Campaign Going on Now! The 2014 employee giving campaign is an opportunity for employees to partner with WakeMed and make a positive impact on our community. Through WakeMed Gives, our contributions – no matter how large or small – will add up to a huge difference for those in need. The WakeMed family is large, and if each of us could commit to giving just $5 per pay period, we would raise over $1 million!
Giving through the employee campaign is a quick and easy way to support WakeMed or your favorite 501(c)(3) charity. This year, you can also donate to a WakeMed Employee Emergency Fund, which will provide financial assistance to WakeMed employees that are facing a personal tragedy or hardship. In addition, the Foundation’s fundraising efforts this year are focused on helping offset the $2.5 million cost to renovate the Women’s Pavilion & Birthplace at Raleigh Campus.
