campaign leader responsibilities
Campaign Leader Responsibilities
  • Work with your Leadership Chair to plan a meeting which includes facility O’s.
  • Recruit your campaign team at your facility (recommended composition includes Marketing, HR, Administration, Fund Leader, and employee representatives)
  • Work with your CEO and Leadership Chair to solicit the leadership team for the Leadership Circle Hope Fund Gifts ($500+ gifts)
  • Set achievable goals for your facility in concert with any division goals
  • Provide the Hope Fund staff with total dollars raised through facility fundraisers (donations not recorded as individual contributions)


how we do it
How We Do It
  • Campaign season is from September - December
  • Focus on two things:
    • Employee participation rates (payroll deduction)
    • Leadership giving & participation
  • Start with your leadership campaign
  • Keep it short: 2 to 4 weeks
  • Use and brand the resources provided for you


setting goals for your campaign
Setting Goals for Your Campaign
  • Start with the number and percentage of employees who participated in your 2010 Hope Fund and United Way Campaigns
          • We will furnish Hope Fund data from the 2010 campaign
  • Determine your target employee giving participation (aim to beat last years participation by 2%)
  • Set a goal for the leadership team’s participation (shoot for 100%)
  • Increase the number Leadership Circle donors over your prior year’s campaign

Hope Fund Employee Participation categories (13% is overall goal):

Needs attention: 0-<5%

Room for improvement: 5%-<10%

Good: 10%-<20%

Great: >20%

FYI- Leadership Team is defined as facility “Os” and Division and Group Leadership (VP and above)


employee participation defined
Employee Participation Defined
  • Participation is defined as...
    • One time donations not tied to facility fundraisers (check & credit card)
    • Payroll deductions
  • Facility fundraisers count toward the total raised, but not toward your overall employee participation rate
  • Payroll deduction gifts are proven to generate better results and establish a pattern of giving.


matching gifts united way
Matching Gifts: United Way
  • We encourage you to consider a establishing a matching gift program for United Way
    • Example: If you are currently making a corporate gift this can easily be shifted to a corporate match
  • Matching gift programs are popular with donors and improve employee morale and loyalty


matching gifts hope fund
Matching Gifts: Hope Fund
  • All donors who give $500 or more are members of the Leadership Circle
  • The CEO and leadership team of every facility are asked to consider making Leadership Circle gifts
  • Leadership gifts of $500 are eligible for a 1:1 match from the HCA Foundation, up to $200,000 system-wide


hope fund a deeper dive
Hope Fund : A Deeper Dive


The HCA Hope Fund’s goal is to be an effective and reliable way for HCA employees to help one another, providing hope and financial assistance in times of need. The Hope Fund offers financial aid for illnesses, injuries, disasters and other special circumstances such as domestic violence that create an unavoidable financial strain.
