The Spirit of Charity Foundation 

Employee Giving

Giving. It's in our roots.

With a legacy nearly 300 years in the making, our hospital delivers care to our community through a caring staff and the best environment for healing.

Support begins from within. With more than 2,700 employees, we can make a positive impact in the lives of our patients and our coworkers.

The Employee Giving Program enables members of the University Medical Center New Orleans team to give back to areas they are most passionate about and offer support.

Be sure to check out the Department Prizes and remember your tax-deductible gift is truly appreciated and will help bring our life-changing services to more in our community!

Donate via credit/debit card or complete and return a payroll deduction form to the Foundation office. The campaign runs November 11 - December 6.
