My Giving Helps: Giving Back to Mass General – Spring 2023

Celebrating the Mass General Community

A Message from Our 2023 Co-Chairs, Mara Bloom, JD, MS, and Seun Johnson-Akeju, MD

Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to lead the 2023 My Giving Helps: The MGH Fund + United Way employee campaign and to celebrate the lasting impact your giving and volunteerism has on fulfilling the greater Mass General mission to deliver excellence in patient care, advance care through innovative research and education, and improve the health and well-being of the diverse communities we serve.

My Giving Helps was established to celebrate the Mass General culture of philanthropy and provide employees with an opportunity to support the hospital’s mission above and beyond their day-to-day efforts in the workplace through tax-deductible donations to the MGH Fund and/or United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley, and with unique volunteer opportunities at the hospital and across our local communities.

If you aren’t yet familiar with My Giving Helps this newsletter will act as a resource for you to learn more about how you can become involved and highlight the ways that your ongoing support makes a lasting impact.

We are grateful for all that you give to Mass General every day. Together we are making a difference.
