  • Making a Donation

    Hello everyone!
    I wanted to share some information with you all that i recently discovered. This month is our Annual Giving Campaign at work. What this means is that for a two week period we have our annual enrollment for giving money to various non profit organizations. What i discovered was that as a donor, you do not necessarily have to donate only to the organizations listed by your workplace. It is possible in most workplaces to donate to ANY 501(c) (3) organization. It was as simple as providing my company with the name of the organizations, address, phone number and name of a contact person. Then they contact the organization to get the neccesary information. It is so simple to be able to be a continous giver to the charity of your choice. I have urged others in my workplace to donate to HCMA and now i am urging all of you to do the same if you are able to do so through work. Some companies (such as the one i work for) even match donations, so that would double whatever you donate! IT is amazing how quickly it can add up. Big or small, any amount of money will work toward continuing research, education, treatment....or whatever the case may be. Thanks for taking the time to read this and please consider donation through your place of employment. It is a pretty painless and easy way to make a difference!

    Sincerely,
    Angie
