Direct Investments Impact
During the Covid-19 pandemic, KCMS is focusing all of its efforts on our frontline healthcare providers and ensuring they are safe and taken care of. By giving to the King County Medical Society Community Foundation (KCMS – CF) direct investments provided an immediate and tangible impact on the ability of the Society to provide for the safety of our frontline healthcare workers, empower working physicians, and improve the health of our community.
Donated funds to KCMS helped to create and distribute tens of thousands of masks and gowns throughout WA state.
Working on two large initiatives (PPE and telehealth distribution) Corporate Assistance enabled us to:
I. Partner with local garment manufacturers, and professional tailors and sewers, to quickly and effectively produce needed PPE equipment for our frontline health care workers. THANK YOU ALL!
KCMS secured the manufacturing space and machines and distributed tens of thousands of masks and thousands of gowns. By providing funding to this effort the listed companies helped hospitals and patients, while also helping workers in our community.
II. Donated Webcams, Laptops, and/or Headphones helped frontline healthcare workers fighting COVID19. One of the biggest GAPS at the beginning of Covid was enabling teleconferencing due to the low number of webcams, headsets, and laptops.
Matching Gifts, Workplace and Employee Giving
Many employees are unaware of matching gift and employee giving opportunities available at their workplace. Whether you work for a private company or a public organization, you can take advantage of the ease and convenience of payroll deduction to make your gift. If your workplace does not participate in a campaign that benefits the Society, you can start a new campaign, or include the Society in an existing campaign.
With a corporate matching gift program, your company can empower its employees and coworkers to provide the safety protection our healthcare providers need during the Covid-19 pandemic.
