Mission Health has a long legacy of partnership with United Way of Asheville & Buncombe County and this year, we are celebrating their 100th year of service!
There are many ways for us to be of service and care for our community—as healthcare heroes, you do this every day in your work. Now, Mission Health, HCA Healthcare and United Way are teaming up to inspire your gifts of time, talent, and treasure for the important work of charitable organizations in our community.
Giving to Non-Profits with HCA Healthcare’s Giving Match
In addition to the Hope Fund giving incentive, HCA Healthcare will match up to $500 a year for gifts starting at $25 to public charities of your choice during this year’s United Way Campaign.
Starting July 5th, you should receive a trusted, external email with a personalized link to the United Way online pledge form that allows you to select the amount and the designated non-profit for your donation. All benefits-eligible colleagues at all Mission Health facilities are eligible to direct gifts to local or national non-profits during this campaign.*
Things to know:
- Your HCA Healthcare match of $25-$500 will be automatically applied to your donation when you pledge.
- You can make a one-time pledge or opt for payroll deduction.
- You can designate the United Way of Asheville & Buncombe County to receive your funds for their important work in the community, or you can select your local United Way, or in fact, any public charity in the US.
- Paper pledge forms are available here if you prefer or ask your United Way Campaign Champion for a copies.
- You have until August 20th to use your annual HCA Healthcare incentive during the United Way fund drive, but don’t delay – Give Today to What Matters to You.
Volunteering to Make a Difference
Join Mission Health’s Volunteer Group on Hands on Asheville-Buncombe (creating a Hands On user profile is required) to find opportunities for “portable projects” and other ways to serve your community, individually or by organizing a colleague team.
Mission Health colleagues who participate in 10 hours of service through the Hands On portal can unlock a $200 Care Card from HCA Healthcare for the charity of their choice.* Colleague teams that volunteer together can get a free #ThisIsMyMission: Caring for WNC t-shirt (first come first serve, while supplies last)!
For questions about accessing the Hands On portal or developing a team project (with t-shirts!), contact the Community Engagement Program Director.
Have you or your team shared your time and talent with an organization you are passionate about? Share your story with us! Your experience can help inspire others and contribute to the culture of giving and volunteering that will make this a great place to work and serve.
