Giving Campaign FAQs

General Questions

What is the best way to make a gift? Is there a way to give online? 

  • You can make a gift online on our secure donation form, using either payroll deduction or your credit card. Click on "Give Now" on the right side of this page.
  • You can also make a gift by using a paper pledge form and returning the form to your local foundation office.

What is Remember Providence?

  • Estate plans are a vital source of support for the foundations.
  • The Remember Providence campaign is a statewide initiative to encourage giving to Providence through your will.
  • To make a gift to Providence through your will, contact your attorney, or contact the foundation office for assistance.

What is Swipe Again Day?

  • During the week of Sept. 22-26 (in Medford Sept. 15-19), after you use your name badge to pay for your meal, you can swipe again to make a donation. This is not available at Providence Benedictine Nursing Center or Providence Child Center.
  • Cash donations are also accepted.
  • All funds raised go to the Helping Hand Fund.
  • The foundations are grateful to the Spiritual Care and nutrition services teams for their assistance in making this program a success.

What is the Helping Hand Fund?

  • The Helping Hand Fund is available to Oregon Region employees experiencing a financial emergency who have been employed by Providence for at least one year.
  • It is funded entirely by Providence employees to help their colleagues in times of financial distress.

Why is United Way included in the giving campaign?

  • The United Way campaign runs concurrent with the Providence Giving Campaign to give caregivers the option to support other nonprofit community organizations.
  • Providence supports many worthy organizations throughout the Oregon region, as is evidenced by our most recent 2013 Community Benefit Report.
  • Providence has a long history of supporting United Way. Many organizations associated with United Way receive both direct and indirect support from Providence.
  • This continued partnership is important. Many of the organizations supported by United Way have a connection to Providence patients.
  • Throughout the year, Providence provides caregivers many opportunities to give back to the community.
  • Including United Way as a part of the Providence Giving Campaign provides a choice for our employees.
