Employee giving is a powerful statement to our community and the mission of our health system. The ECHO program (Employees Contributing to Help Others) allows employees to donate to a qualifying fund through payroll deduction. All donations made through the ECHO program are tax deductible.
The Power of Participation
To take part, please fill out the ECHO Pledge Form and return it to Med Center Health Foundation or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. One hundred percent of all funds donated to the Foundation are designated for the fund of your choice.
