How do I know my donation isn’t spent on operating funds?
As part of Southeast Alabama Medical Center’s humanitarian role, the Foundation’s annual operating expenses are underwritten by the Medical Center so that 100 percent of gifts received will benefit the healthcare service or community wellness initiative specified.
Why is donating to the Capital Campaign (Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine & Health & Wellness Endowment) an option and what will that money be used for?
Each employee has a unique opportunity to be part of history in the making. Employees are given the option to join the Foundation in raising the necessary funds to help the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine (ACOM) become a reality. There is an immediate need for an additional 402 primary care physicians in Alabama. In the Dothan region alone, 40-plus physicians in five different specialty areas including primary care are needed to serve the community. Funds designated for ACOM, raised through the 2011 employee campaign, will be earmarked for cutting-edge education technology, equipment and training at the new college.
Do I need to renew my employee donor pledge each year?
Yes! Employees need to fill out a new pledge form each year if they wish to renew their
bi-weekly donation. Employee pledges do not renew automatically each year.
When will I receive my campaign appreciation prizes?
In a continuous effort to try to reduce cost, the SAMC Foundation made a decision to order all campaign appreciation prizes at the conclusion of the 2011 employee campaign. This year employees may chose to waive their prizes to help further cut costs.
Appreciation prizes will be available for pick-up April 26th, 27th and 28th at the SAMC Foundation office.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes, to the fullest extent allowed by law. Please consult with your tax advisor regarding your specific circumstances.
Please join us in this partnership of people who care about others. With your help, the Foundation promises the opportunity to purchase life-saving medical equipment, expand technology, and create a regional medical facility that will meet current and future needs of our growing community.
Your gift or pledge, of any size, to the Medical Center Foundation our foundation for the future will ensure that Southeast Alabama Medical Center continues to expand its health and wellness mission by closing need gaps while bridging the dream gaps of tomorrow.
