Our employees are extraordinary! Thanks to their gifts and additional community support, the Foundation has been able to give thousands of dollars to our support patients, facilities, and co-workers.
In 2021, 491 employees gave over $100,000 through payroll deduction!
Employee Giving Campaign

Do you know what SGMC has done, thanks in part to Employee Giving?
Gifts May Be Designated to specific SGMC campuses, programs, or SGMC’s Care Share Fund!
Care Share Fund
The Care Share Fund provides financial support to SGMC employees in times of unusual need. The fund is also used to support the Greater Valdosta United Way to increase the positive impact they have on the communities that we serve. 50 % of the funds are used to support your colleagues in times of need and 50% of the funds are used to support our local community needs through the Greater Valdosta United Way. Care Share is supported through employee donations and is sponsored by the SGMC Foundation, in partnership with People Services.
Your gift to the Care Share Fund is another way that the SGMC community of employees can demonstrate human kindness by caring and providing for fellow colleagues facing financial hardships.
