2015 Regional Associate Campaign

August 3 - August 21, 2015

Believe In Better.  
Three simple words, with a multitude of meanings.  
What do they mean to you?

At St. Mary’s of Michigan, St. Mary’s of Michigan Standish Hospital and St. Joseph Health System, we are guided by the understanding that health care goes beyond the walls of hospitals…with friends and neighbors caring for friends and neighbors in a variety of ways and settings.

We treat some of the sickest, most injured people in the state. And we do it well.  We also do it with extraordinary warmth, humility and genuine concern for families as well as patients. Regardless of your role, from nurses, registration specialists, physicians or leadership, we are all devoted to excellent care and the Associate Campaign is one way to demonstrate that 

The first regional Associate Campaign will take place August 3 - August 21, 2015.  By making a gift to the Foundation during this campaign, you are helping secure equipment and providing life-saving services that will aide in the treatment and healing of our patients. 100% of your gift stays local – this means your donation will be put to work in your community and in your workplace.

Join in on the excitement of this year’s regional Associate Giving campaign. Please return your associate pledge card no later than August 21 to receive a Believe in Better name badge reel.  Be proud to be part of a health ministry focused on people, communities and better health.  That’s what Believe in Better is all about!

What’s New?

Your financial support sends a strong message that you care about the hospital’s healing mission.

Our three hospitals fundraising programs are working together – developing a regional approach to this year’s Associate Giving Campaign.  We are proud to introduce the first regional Associate Campaign for all St. Mary’s of Michigan, St. Mary’s of Michigan Standish Hospital and St. Joseph Health System associates.

When you choose to participate in the regional Associate Campaign via a one-time gift or through payroll deduction, 100% of your gift stays local – that means your donation will be put to work in your community, and in your workplace. 

Where does my donation go?

May I designate where my donation goes?
