Did you know that every October and November, Aurora caregivers come together for an annual charitable giving campaign that’s among the largest in the state?
It’s called the Aurora Partnership Campaign. Founded in 2000 by the Aurora Health Care Foundation, caregivers use this service to facilitate their charitable giving.
But here’s what our amazing caregivers did in 2016.
In just two months, 11,770 Aurora caregivers broke the campaign’s fundraising record, raising over $4 million overall, with over $2 million earmarked toward Aurora Health Care funds that help provide vital access to care and support groundbreaking research.
Making a difference to people and communities
From local animal shelters and free clinics, to the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight, to our own Abuse Response Services, Aurora caregivers give through APC to help the neediest among us get the care they need, right where they are.
“We make it easy for our caregivers to help because we know how much they want to help,” says Patrick Rath, senior vice president, Aurora Health Care Foundation. “They know that every little bit makes a big difference.”
So during the campaign, participating caregivers can choose how they give, whether with a single donation or through payroll deduction for as little as a dollar a pay period.
Helping those who need it most
“Our caregivers work so hard, day in and day out, while still recognizing that there are critical gaps out there – and that they can help fill them,” Patrick continues.
“We simply couldn’t be more proud of our Aurora caregivers.”
