The Foundation is a non-profit 501(C)3 organization that supports seniors and their caregivers in our community.
In the past two years, the WellMed Charitable Foundation has contributed over $3 million to the community.
On April 7, 2010, the WellMed Charitable Foundation distributed more than $100,000 to 20 local charities. Funds distributed were donations from the 2009 GIVE (Generous Individuals Value Everyone) campaign, which is the WellMed employee fundraiser for the foundation. Employees chose to designate their contributions to the charities benefiting from their donations or to the WellMed Charitable Foundation, which will use the money to give to causes benefiting seniors and caregivers in our community emphasizing prevention, wellness and living with chronic illness.
WellMed supported the staff contributions by matching donations dollar for dollar.
