2024 Employee "Spirit of Giving" Campaign Raises over $200,000!

Through a belief in our Mission, it is only natural that employees want to support the hospital, financially and otherwise. Throughout our ministry we have many people from different backgrounds that creatively understand the importance of helping our community. In times of need employees connect and support each other through hardships and successes. Advocating for those who are vulnerable, and creating ways to break down barriers—both inside the four walls of our hospital and past them into our communities is made possible by employee giving.

Through the generosity of our employees, which continues to humble us, in 2024 our “Spirit of Giving” campaign raised $200,000 through the support of 206 employees. 

Read what some of our collegues have to say:

“For me, just the name of our great “Spirit of Giving” Program says it all. I feel truly blessed to be able to donate to our Hospital because it allows me to support the compassionate and lifesaving care we provide to our patients each and every day. I’m also extremely proud of the many ways we provide support to our community and to see what a positive difference we are making in the lives of so many people. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that my donation helps support our mission and the incredible care we provide to so many,” - Nina Hirsch, Director of Medical Staff Services.


“I have donated to the Northridge Hospital Foundation directly through my paycheck. I feel so strongly about giving back to the place that has nurtured me and given me a happy work life all these years. I see the donations that we make being put into action for our patients. Much of the equipment we have is provided through generous donations, and knowing that I have a small part in this gives me a strengthened sense of purpose. For me, every time I donate, I feel as though I am the one receiving the true gift.” – Jill Dickson, RN, OCN, MSHCM


I have chosen to participate in the Employee Spirit of Giving Partners Program at NHMC in the spirit of gratitude. I have been blessed in many ways throughout my life and my greatest role model, my grandmother, always taught my mother and I we must share those blessings with others. At Northridge, we have a mission to improve the health of the people we serve, the vulnerable and the disenfranchised and I know my financial support empowers the organization to deliver this mission. – Miriam Melgar-Atanaya, Director Mission Integration

At the end of each campaign we come together to celebrate humankindess! Check out some of the event day photos here!
