Covenant Cares is a Covenant Health employee giving program that is employee-funded,
employee-administered and employee-distributed. The employee campaign
provides funding for equipment and programs throughout our health system
based on requests submitted by employees. An anonymous board, made up
of employees, makes the funding distribution decisions each quarter.
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.
Employees 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 employee online store, similar to popular consumer shopping websites.
If you are a Covenant employee and would like to participate, contact Covenant

Keeping the Covenant Employee Campaign
When the Keeping the Covenant capital campaign kicked off in the spring
of 2015, we first turned to our employees, doctors and leaders in our
fundraising efforts. We believe employee giving inspires others in our
community to give and conveys more than words our commitment to our patients.
In two years of giving, more than 1,600 employees have donated $832,054
to the campaign.
Employees who donate are given a t-shirt with the Keeping the Covenant
logo and are encouraged to wear them on Fridays. Employees who would like
to participate should contact Lerica at (806) 725-1019.
