Generous team members helped Baptist raise $133,000 during its 2019 United Way Giving Campaign. The money will benefit the United Way Fund, the Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation and other charities.
The Baptist Foundation is Baptist’s fund-raising arm. It is funded by donor gifts, and it uses 100% of those gifts for their intended purpose. Funds help provide grief support, financial assistance for patients of all ages, health care for the homeless, scholarships for students training as health care professionals and many others in the communities we serve.
United Way of the Mid-South’s mission is to improve the quality of life for Mid-Southerners by mobilizing and aligning community resources to address priority issues. In 2016, Rev. Kenneth S. Robinson, M.D., President and CEO of United Way of the Mid-South, announced the organization’s top priority is addressing Mid-South poverty. United Way’s work in education, financial stability and health brings about positive changes on local poverty, and the organization aligns its funding, initiatives, partnerships and programs in ways that help more people escape poverty.
