Together We Care is the name of our annual workplace giving campaign. Employees can make a monthly donation or a one-time gift via payroll deduction. Qualifying staff can also donate PTO or BEA funds to programs within Hennepin Healthcare. The Hennepin Healthcare Foundation leads this campaign to offer you a moment to support the programs and charities that mean the most to you.  Many programs rely on contributions to exist.  During your workday, the equipment, training, environment and patient and staff experience has often been enhanced by philanthropy.  You have the power to make a similar difference.  There are over 100 funds within Hennepin Healthcare and numerous external charities you can support using payroll deduction.  

Together We Care runs October 3 – 21, 2022. During this time, employees can access the online donation portal to make a monthly donation or a one-time gift via payroll deduction or credit card to the fund or community charity of their choice.

Several Hennepin Healthcare programs rely on philanthropy to exist. So, while the timing seems insensitive to some, we want to continue to offer this annual moment for you to support the causes you care about, using the convenience of payroll deduction. Hopefully, you have seen the benefits generosity brings to your team, the patient experience, medical education and research programs. We encourage you to donate what you can and together we can achieve more.

You can make your donation in several ways. Find links and forms on this page to donate.

  1. Use the online portal to make a monthly donation or a one-time gift via payroll deduction or credit card. Helpful step by step instructions.
  2. Complete a paper donation form and return it to the Foundation.
  3. Send a check and completed paper donation form to the Foundation.
  4. Qualifying employees can donate PTO or BEA funds to programs within Hennepin Healthcare.

A donation of PTO or vacation hours has become a popular way to support programs of Hennepin Healthcare during our workplace giving campaign. This option comes with specific rules. Please read the highlighted PTO donation instructions on this webpage above the FAQ section. 

A BEA (Business Expense Account ) fund holder may donate to a charitible fund held at Hennepin Healthcare Foundation or HHRI. This option comes with specific rules. Access BEA donation instructions.

You will see your first payroll deduction donation occur in the first pay period of January 2023. 

Hennepin Healthcare has always had generous participation from team members. Together We Care generates approximately $300,000 in philanthropic support for our community.

You will receive a postcard at home and see announcements in Scanner. At the downtown campus, there will be a banner in the Café that will be updated with first names of donors.

Yes, team members can set up donations using payroll deductions throughout the year. However, it is only through the Together We Care campaign that you can support external charities using payroll deduction.  We thank the payroll team for the extra effort to set up the process to distribute donations to external charities at the start of each calendar year.
