Raising Hope at Work Employee Giving Campaign

At UF Health Shands and the UF College of Medicine, it takes everyone to make our mission possible. Collectively, our efforts are part of what makes us the Southeast’s most comprehensive academic health center. Together, we raise hope.

The Raising Hope at Work employee giving campaign returns June 1 through July 31. Beginning in 2009 and now entering its 11th year, the campaign offers a unique opportunity to give back. Our participation signals a continued commitment to caring for each other and our community.

A special thanks to Traci d’Auguste, UF Health Shands chief operating officer, and Timothy Morey, M.D., UF College of Medicine department of anesthesiology chair, for signing on as our campaign co-chairs this year. Through their leadership, and that of the many unit and department Champions, we are certain this year’s campaign will make a difference for the patients, students and community we serve!

For the last decade, our collective giving through Raising Hope at Work has supported initiatives like renovations to the NICU, support for capital projects like the George T. Harrell, M.D., Medical Education Building and programmatic initiatives like Arts in Medicine.

New to the campaign this year, employees can choose the fund to support within UF Health Shands and the UF College of Medicine. By contributing to the fund that means the most, our impact is personalized. No matter where the gift goes, we join in healing, discovering, educating and raising hope together for our patients and community.
