The Spirit of Charity Foundation

Employee Giving

Did you know that giving is in our roots? With a legacy nearly 300 years in the making, our hospital delivers care to our community through a kindhearted staff and an environment built from the ground up to provide healing to others.

Throughout your career you may have experienced a moment where you wished you could do more for a patient. This is your opportunity to do just that and give to areas you are most passionate about. Everyone can participate by making a one time or recurring gift or LCMC staff can even sign up for payroll deduction.

Your support goes toward vital Foundation programs helping thousands of patients and our community. From those dealing with the pandemic, the patient that needs financial support through our Medication Bridge Program, or the thousands of patients living their best lives through our medical research and education, your support is truly impactful.

These days the need is even more important. Please make a meaningful donation. Your gift is tax-deductible and will help bring these life-changing services to those when they need help the most!
