The University of Mississippi Medical Center's annual Employee Giving Campaign provides an opportunity for UMMC employees to give back to the very institution they support through the work they do each day.
Employees are able to choose the fund or funds they wish to support. Some of the campaign's highlighted funds include:
The Manning Family Fund, which provides children in underserved communities early education programs about nutrition and exercise; draws attention to men's health challenges through programs that support routine preventive care; supports research performed at The MIND Center; and funds a state-of-the-art operation simulation suite in the new School of Medicine.
Children's of Mississippi, an organization that supports Batson Children's Hospital, the state's only Level IV neonatal intensive care unit and the state's only pediatric emergency department, as well as the Children's of Mississippi Expansion Project.
The Guardian Society, a group whose members, be they "founding members" who have given to UMMC during the last four decades, or brand new members, support the institution's areas of greatest need.
The UMMC Alliance, a volunteer organization that promotes goodwill and fellowship to the Medical Center through support of patient needs, the UMMC Chapel, university support funds and art acquisitions.
Giving events will take place each day during the "Building UMMC's Future: It Starts with Us" campaign Nov. 13-17. T-shirts, coolers, parking spaces, lapel pins, and local restaurant discount coupons are available to those who participate in the campaign at predetermined amounts.
