Employees Invest in Northwestern

Giving campaign raised nearly $33,000.
Staff and faculty at Northwestern Health Sciences University showed their support for the University by contributing to the Every Give Counts Employee Giving Campaign. The 2012 campaign centered around community engagement, with options to direct contributions to the Pillsbury House Integrated Health Clinic, and student scholarships.
At this writing, the campaign has raised $32,994 with 35% giving. “The phenomenal growth of this campaign over last year's total is a testament to the generosity of our employees and the strength of our mission as a non-profit organization,” said Scott Palmer, Chief Development Officer for Northwestern.
Thanks to these generous contributions, $5,435 will be donated to the Pillsbury House Clinic, which may be used for patient care technology, interpreter services, and basic equipment and supplies. $6,293 was raised for scholarships, which will fund three $1,000 scholarships for Northwestern students, and three $1,000 scholarships for area high school students interested in pursuing a degree in the health sciences. Finally, $2,782 will go to United Way, and $18,484 was designated to the area of greatest need at Northwestern. The University is paying for all the administrative costs of processing these gifts so that 100 percent of the money donated will go directly to its designated cause.
The enrollment period for payroll deduction has ended, but one-time contributions to the 2012 Employee Giving Campaign may be made through December 31 by contacting Scott Palmer or Vanessa Feils in the Development Office.
