Why does MedStar Health Research Institute need my philanthropic
Philanthropy is a vital source of funding for our mission of
excellence in research, patient care and education. It touches
all aspects of our mission and every area within MedStar.
Is there a minimum amount I can donate?
Any donation is gratefully accepted. However, in order to
contribute through the MedStar Health Research Institute payroll
deduction plan you must give at least $4 per pay.
Where does my donation go?
Giving: The Power to Heal is a yearly
campaign for our associates to support MedStar Health Research
Institute. Your donations are used to support the research MHRI
is able to provide to the future of medicine.
What if I want my gift to benefit something more specific?
If you would like your gift to benefit a specific program, please
contact the philanthropy office at 410-772-6670.
We will be happy to work with you so that your gift can make an
impact in the area you are most interested in.
How much of my gift goes to the hospital or entity I designate?
100% of your gift goes directly to MedStar Health Research
What makes MedStar Health Research Institute a good philanthropic
MedStar Health Research Institute is a sound investment; we
remain steadfast to our vision of being the trusted leader in
caring for people and advancing health and to create knowledge
through research. A partner with our local communities, MedStar
Health provided more than $250 million in charity care and
community services last year.
How does payroll deduction work?
All payroll deduction pledge payments begin January 6, 2013 and
will occur for either 26 or 24 pay periods in 2013 - whichever is
applicable to you. You will be able to view the deduction amount
on your paystub, as well as your year-to-date contribution.
Why is participation in this campaign important?
MedStar Health Research Institute has a special culture with an
emphasis on philanthropy. We understand the difference
philanthropy can make by supporting the research we do every day.
Making a gift through the campaign is a unique way for associates
to demonstrate that they believe in and support MHRI's commitment
to "create knowledge through research."
