Covenant Cares inspires giving that goes above and beyond our promise of
"know me, care for me, ease my way," by supporting innovative
and impactful ideas that will delight our community of caregivers and
patients, but need financial support.
Covenant Cares is a Covenant Health caregiver giving program that is caregiver-funded,
caregiver-administered and caregiver-distributed. The caregiver campaign
provides funding for equipment and programs throughout our health system
based on requests submitted by our caregivers. The Covenant Cares Funding
Board comprised of anonymous caregivers, meets quarterly to determine
funding distribution decisions.
Since the inception of Covenant Cares in 2003, our employees have donated
more than $7 million to Covenant Health to give our patients the best
possible health care. On average 50% of employees participate in the giving program.
Caregivers who give an hour of pay per month receive eight hours of paid
time off and reward points, which can be used to purchase items from the
Covenant caregiver online store, similar to popular consumer shopping websites.
If you are a Covenant caregiver and would like to participate, contact
Covenant Health Foundation at (806) 725-6089.

Keeping the Covenant Employee Campaign
When the Keeping the Covenant capital campaign kicked off in the spring
of 2015, we first turned to our caregivers, doctors, and leaders in our
fundraising efforts. We believe caregiver giving inspires others in our
community to give and conveys more than words of our commitment to our
patients. Over our five year capital campaign, more than 1,600 caregivers
donated $832,054 to the campaign.
Employees who donated were given a t-shirt with the Keeping the Covenant
logo annually and are encouraged to continue wearing them on Fridays to
support this initiative.
