Join our tradition of employees giving back to the kids. Make your gift today. 

Why Should I Give?

Philanthropy benefits every area of our health system. As employees, we know firsthand that it takes extra resources to provide the right healing environment for children and families. Gifts to CHKD help offset the costs of many of the special programs that are not reimbursed such as Child Life, Social Work, and Art and Music Therapy. Gifts also support things like staff education and training programs, as well as hospital equipment. Philanthropy ensures that all children who need services are able to access them. You make CHKD the special place it is.

What if I'm already giving via payroll deduction?

We hope that you continue to give and even consider increasing your gift. Beginning in July of 2018, all Employee Giving payroll deductions were set up to continue unless you noted otherwise or contacted us. If you have any questions, please reach out to the Philanthropy Office at 757-668-7070.

When I donate PTO, am I taxed on that income?

Yes, PTO is taxable income so you are liable for the taxes on the donated amount. You may donate additional PTO to cover the taxes on the donated amount. The form provides both options for you. If considering a PTO donation and you have further questions, please call Laurie Sparrow in Payroll at 757-668-7103.

Why are there two sections on the pledge form? Am I making two gifts?

In this unique year, we are inviting our employees to make a special gift to the Lighting the Way campaign for mental health in addition to their employee gift. Commitments to this campaign can be paid over a 5 year period. Should you choose to make an additional mental health gift through payroll deduction, it will appear on your paycheck as a separate deduction.

Why should I make a gift to both campaigns?

Children are in crisis and they need our help. We are asking for a special gift to the Lighting the Way campaign in order to provide critical mental health care to our region’s children and families. In addition, our patients continue to rely on our hospital for all of the unique CHKD services that create a healing environment. This is an opportunity for employees to help with both of these crucial needs.

How will I be recognized for my donation(s)?

All employees who donate $26 ($1 per pay period) will be recognized on the first floor of the main hospital on our employee donor board. In addition, gifts of $1,000 or more, which can be made over 5 years, to the Lighting the Waycampaign will be recognized on an employee donor board on the second floor of the new hospital. Please note that we are only able to put the employee’s name on donor boards.

How can I showcase my support of the campaign?

All donors who give at least $10 per pay period to either the Employee Giving campaign or Lighting the Way campaign will receive a t-shirt. All who give to the Employee Giving campaign at any level will receive a pin. Additionally, all who give to the mental health campaign will receive a special Lighting the Way pin. T-shirts will be mailed out weekly throughout the campaign; we will do our best to accommodate all sizes.
