Celebrating our My Giving Helps Champion Volunteers
Senior Director of Development, 16 years at Mass General
Participating as a My Giving Helps Champion is a wonderful opportunity to connect with fellow Champions from different departments who share my enthusiasm about supporting our priorities with gifts of philanthropy. When volunteering at the hospital, I have the chance to talk informally with a cross-section of co-workers about how their gifts – of any size – improve the experience for patients and employees. It brings me closer to the MGH mission!
Senior Finance Manager, Buildings and Grounds
Most charity programs have a defined purpose, and the way charities are structured has many restrictions. Not My Giving Helps! Dollars raised through My Giving Helps are readily available when there is an immediate need. And I love that the beneficiaries of this support are right here under the Mass General roof.
MGH Everett Family Care, 5 years at Mass General
I first heard about My Giving Helps through an MGH broadcast email that was seeking volunteers and I signed up for a meet and greet at Main Campus. While listening to the My Giving Helps team, I heard ‘unrestricted funds’. Having worked for a nonprofit and understanding the importance of having flexibility with funds I was very enthused to help raise funds for Mass General and the United Way. When donations are made to a specific area, such as Breast Cancer research, they can only be used for that sole purpose. However, having unrestricted funds allows My Giving Helps to use the donations for other great causes such as the Gun Lock program, which Dr. James, who is one of my providers at Everett Family Care, was part of.
