In response to the overwhelming public interest and offers to assist our healthcare heroes, we are accepting donations from individuals and organizations that will directly impact Baptist Health team members experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Baptist Health Care Foundation opens the opportunity to support this fund to the public in order to honor healthcare professionals who are on the front lines of the fight against the Coronavirus.
Visit our DONATE page to make a gift! Once on the form, and after “My donation is for,” please select “Team Member Emergency Assistance Fund.” 100% of your gift will go directly to meet a need of Baptist Health team members across all facilities and departments. Gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
The Baptist Health Care Foundation Team Member Assistance Fund, already in place, exists to ensure staff has everything they need to continue caring for patients. Funds are distributed to assist team members that have experienced unavoidable or unexpected circumstances, at no fault of their own.
This program is available to qualifying team members and applications are considered on a case by case basis. The fund operates 365 days of the year and is traditionally funded through Mission Makers, the Baptist Health Care Foundation annual team member giving campaign.
Our team members are working tirelessly to keep our communities safe and serve the most vulnerable during this public health crisis. We are honored to create a means for our community to show appreciation for the work our healthcare heroes commit to each day. Thank you for considering a gift.
