Employee Giving

Thank You to Our Staff Members!

Employees Give to Patients, Clients and Research

Every year, staff members at Virginia Mason Health System give generously to support the needs of patients, clients and research. In 2015, more than $120,000 was raised to support important projects. Employees also volunteer their time for charity and help at events such as the Virginia Mason Dreambuilders’ Ball and the Boeing Classic Golf Tournament. We thank them for their ongoing commitment to help others.

Why Do They Give?

“I participate because I believe it is the right thing to do. Giving back through the Employee Giving Campaign is so important for our community.” − Lisa W.

“Why do I support BRI and research? Because many people in my family are impacted by autoimmune diseases and I would love to be able to say that I did everything I can to stop autoimmunity with me.” – Annie S.

#ALLIN to Help Others

Hundreds of employees give to help others – here are some of the programs they support.

  • Exceptional Patient Experience – Funds go to the Patient Resource Center at Virginia Mason Medical Center for support groups, patient assistance with processes and essential items for patients in the hospital. The Concierge Cart with reading glasses, phone chargers, and even adult coloring books serves 100 patients each week.

  • Nutrition Program at Bailey-Boushay House – Funds provide healthy meals to clients, many of whom are homeless and struggle with other health issues like diabetes, chemical dependency and untreated mental health issues in addition to their HIV/AIDS.

  • Innovation Fund at Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI) − Funds give crucial support for innovative ideas and technologies that lead to scientific breakthroughs. BRI’s fight against autoimmune and immune system diseases give millions of people hope that one day these diseases will be prevented.
