Q. How will the campaign work?
A. A campaign brochure has been sent to every employee. The completed forms need to be returned to the Foundation office, MC 0111. You may also email your form to Robin.Engleberg@dhha.org. A minimum of $1 per paycheck ($26 per year) is required for payroll deduction. Payroll deduction will begin in January of 2013.
Q. Are CSA Employees eligible?
A. CSA employees are not eligible for the payroll deduction program. Instead they are encouraged to make an equivalent one-time gift, or send checks monthly.
Q. What if I signed up last year for payroll deduction?
A. If you are currently participating in the payroll deduction plan, it is necessary for you to sign a new pledge form to continue your gifts in 2013.
Q. Who is eligible to win prizes?
A. Any employee (full-time, part-time, contract, intermittent, etc.) who donates at least $1 per payperiod, or who makes a one-time gift of $26 or more is eligible to participate in the contest and drawings for prizes.
Q. Where does the money go?
A. Visit our Denver Health Foundation website to learn more.
Q. How do I make a donation to Denver Health?
A. Ways to Give:
· Payroll Deduction—The easiest way for Denver Health employees to give! Fill out a pledge form, indicate how much you would like to donate each pay period, and that amount will be automatically deducted from your paycheck, beginning in January, 2013.
· One-time gift— A one-time gift can be made in any amount by payroll deduction and this amount will be deducted in January. You may also write a check payable to “Denver Health Foundation.”
By giving to Denver Health through this Employee Giving Campaign you can be assured that every single penny of your gift, 100%, will go directly to the fund you choose. Nothing is deducted—no overhead costs and no fees. Then sit back and see your contribution at work!
Q. What are some of the projects at Denver Health that need my philanthropic support?
A. There are many giving opportunities at Denver Health. Your financial contribution will help to:
· Give a “warm welcome” bag to a low-income mother and her newborn baby through the Newborns in Need Fund (Baby Shower Project).
· Provide hearing aids to an elderly patient through the Patient Assistance Fund.
· Support research in Emergency Medicine through the Peter Rosen Endowed Chair in Emergency Medicine.
· Supply children’s books for the Reach Out and Read program, so that every child between the ages of six months and five years of age goes home from well-child check-ups with a new, age appropriate book.
· Buy bicycle helmets to ensure that children in Denver bikes have fitted bike helmets through the Unrestricted Fund.

Q. What is the 24/7 Fund?
A. At Denver Health, the lights never go out. There are enormous needs around the clock and they can’t all be met through the hospital’s operating budget. The 24/7 Fund will allocate small grants to groups of employees or departments who submit applications for worthwhile projects at Denver Health. Possible uses might include: teaching videos, training, equipment, and special patient needs like crib mobiles for pediatric patients and coats for Denver C.A.R.E.S. To learn more about what types of applications will be eligible, check back soon for complete details.
Q. Can I give to the DH Employee Giving Campaign and the DECC, too?
A. Absolutely! However, you must complete separate enrollment forms for each program.
