What is the NMHS employee giving campaign?
The employee giving campaign allows every member of the North Mississippi Health Services family to help support our hospitals’ mission and provide for health care needs through personal financial contributions.
I already give so much, why should I contribute financially?
While the day-to-day sacrifices you make to serve patients and families are beyond measure, making a voluntary philanthropic gift is another way to strengthen our hospitals’ ability to provide for many more care needs.
Many organizations ask for my support, why should I donate to our hospital?
Giving back to our hospital sends a powerful statement to your colleagues and our community. We rely on the generosity of our community so that we may continue to provide outstanding primary and specialty care. Each year, contributions from thousands of individuals support everything from patient assistance, diabetes education and children’s health programs to innovations in patient care that aren’t part of our hospital’s operating budget. Join the community and your fellow colleagues today in supporting the NMHS vision to be the nation’s best provider of patient and family-centered care.
Is participation in the employee giving campaign mandatory?
No. Financial contributions are completely voluntary.
Does my giving have any influence on my performance review?
No. Giving has no influence on any performance evaluation.
Will all of my donation be used for charitable purposes?
Yes. Of any amount you choose to give, 100% of your gift goes to support charitable health care needs. None of your donation will be used for fundraising expenses. Your donations are also income tax-deductible as allowed by IRS regulations.

“I give to HCF because it helps so many worthy causes, especially here in the heart of North Mississippi. HCF provides funding to many patient care funds, which helps so many of our patients. Our area is very blessed to have HCF. I am glad I have an opportunity to help someone by giving.”
Rick Blansett, Print Shop
“I help others because I would want someone to help me if the roles were reversed. There’s no greater joy than serving others.”
Christy Whitley, Women’s Hospital
“The Healthcare Foundation is an excellent program for giving. It is an easy way to reach out and make a difference in the lives of individuals across varied spectrums. The HCF impacts our community in areas of health, education, facility projects to support delivery of care, and in crisis situations. I am proud to contribute to an entity with a philosophy of serving and helping others in need.”
