Team Member Giving
The Team Member Giving Program provides Wellstar team members with the opportunity to easily contribute to the health of their community with a recurring gift to the Foundation. Every dollar donated supports projects that enable us to deliver world-class healthcare for our families, friends and neighbors across Wellstar’s service area.
Giving Tuesday — November 30, 2021
Giving Tuesday is celebrated around the world as the single largest day of giving. This Giving Tuesday, we are asking our fellow team members to help us replenish the Wellstar Foundation Emergency Assistance Fund (EAF). When a Wellstar team member faces an unforeseen crisis, the EAF provides financial aid for things like rent, mortgage payments, utility bills, medical expenses and childcare. Last year, we were proud to support more team members than ever through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, but we need your help to ensure the EAF continues to be a resource in 2022—providing support for team members who experience a sudden loss of income, a medical crisis or a death in the family.

The Impact of Giving
It’s through our Team Member Giving Program that we, as One Wellstar, are able to support one common goal—to deliver world-class healthcare for our families, friends and neighbors across all Wellstar communities. As individuals, we make a difference in our patients’ lives each day, but when we come together to support Team Member Giving, that impact is magnified for generations.
What does it mean to be a non-profit?
As a non-profit health system, every dollar received through the Wellstar Foundation is reinvested into worthy initiatives that enhance patient and community care. All donations are tax deductible as allowed by law. Wellstar Foundation’s Tax ID is 58-1627413.
How much should I give?
Whether big or small—every dollar makes a difference! 100% of donations to the Wellstar Foundation go directly toward the initiative designated by the individual donor. Enrolling in automatic payroll deduction is the easiest way to give. You may also choose to give through recurring or one-time credit card payments.
Estate/Planned giving is also an excellent way for team members to give back to the health and well-being of your community. There are many benefits to planned giving, including reducing your tax burden, meeting your philanthropic goals and leaving a lasting Wellstar legacy.
