24-Hour Campaign Focused on Community Support and Employee Gratitude. Funds Raised to support Cayuga Medical Center and Schuyler Hospital Foundations.
Cayuga Health held their 2nd Annual 24-Hour Giving Day Fundraising Campaign on September 14th and announced today that they have successfully raised $177,440. This year’s fundraising efforts focused on the health system’s gratitude and appreciation. Their gratitude exists not only for their own providers and health care workers who gave so much over the past year, but for the passionate and dedicated support they have received from all the communities Cayuga Health serves.
“We are simply amazed at how generous our communities have been throughout the pandemic and by the tireless support of our providers in support of their communities and one another,” states Dr. Martin Stallone, President & CEO of Cayuga Health. “On behalf of the entire Cayuga Health System and from the bottom of my heart, I would like to once again extend my deepest gratitude to those who have provided so much during this pandemic, including their financial support, during our Giving Day.”
“Last year was our first experience with an exclusively online fundraising campaign, and we were thrilled with the outcome,” stated Steve Savage, Executive Director, Cayuga Medical Center Foundation. “This year we are incredibly gracious for the continued support. The money we have raised will benefit our entire health care system and allows us to continue to provide the best care for our communities, right here.”
The funds raised on #CayugaGivingDay will benefit the Cayuga Medical Center Foundation, Schuyler Hospital Foundation and Seneca View Skilled Nursing Facility. Like last year on Cayuga Giving Day there were generous matching gifts, multiple giving challenges, and videos and live streaming. More can be found at Cayugagivingday.org. Cayuga Health partnered with Ithaca based GiveGab during the 24-Hour Campaign.
