2015 Employee Giving Campaign: Cheerful Givers


…Give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

2 Corinthians 9:7

The Employee Giving Campaign demonstrates the dedication of United Church Homes’ employees to our mission to transform aging by building a culture of community, wholeness and peace. As an organization, we are greatly impacted by the decision of each employee to give personal financial support to community projects and resident care through the Life Enrichment Fund.

“When projects like the gazebo and the planter boxes are completed, I can see smiles on the faces of people here. This is why I try to increase what I give every year.”

This campaign lets residents and families know that Four Winds is a place where employees do more than earn a paycheck. Staff are enthusiastic to give back because they genuinely care for the residents here.

The campaign allows employees to help collectively make a significant gift to residents. Trinity uses this time to focus their energy as a team to give more than smiles to residents. Darlene feels giving the best care means going the extra mile. She is excited to talk to other employees about the positive impact of raising money for residents. It has created such a stir that it encourages giving of all kinds, and goes beyond the employees.

“The people that come to Trinity have been contributing to the Dayton community for many years. It is only appropriate that when their resources dwindle, we are here for them.”

“Our staff at United Church Homes is at the heart of our mission. We are thankful for their dedication to their work and the compassion they have for those we serve. Their personal donations are a wonderful demonstration of their commitment,” said Gloria T. Hurwitz, CFRE, vice president of advancement.

The Employee Giving Campaign is a reflection of the enduring spirit and engagement among the employees of United Church Homes. Providing benevolent care for those who have outlived their resources is a cornerstone of what UCH does. Fast Facts:Without the generosity of almost 1,000 employees, we wouldn’t be able to enhance the lives of residents and families. UCH extends our gratitude to all the participants of the 2015 Employee Giving Campaign.
