  • East Valley employees have already pledged nearly $1 million to Dignity Rising. This is a significant accomplishment, yet we still have work to do to reach our $2 million goal.

Be a Giver!

Donors can now give to the employee fund to help a colleague in need. The HERO (Helping Employees Reach Others) fund is a new designation, offered in partnership with Human Resources and the Foundation, to help people in our Dignity Health family who find themselves in an emergency situation. You can use any donation method, however, by law your gift to support other employees is not tax deductible. (Employees needing assistance please call HR at 480.728.3424.)

We have the best employees and volunteers on the Dignity Health team! It’s no secret that Chandler Regional and Mercy Gilbert employees and volunteers are committed to compassionate and excellent service for our patients and their families. They are also committed to helping future patients through their generous tax-deductible giving. Employee Giving helps to purchase items the employees know that patients will need.  

Information for Employee & Volunteer Giving

There is another really fun way that employees can contribute and become a SUPER HERO.  When joining the Healing Hour Club, employees commit to donating the equivalent of one hour of pay (or PTO)  per pay period. As Super Heros, our Healing Hour Club members are treated to unique and fun opportunities throughout the year.  


Make your commitment online, by Employee Self Service (ESS), or by contacting the Foundation at 480.728.3931.

There are many ways for employees and volunteers to give and you may choose where your gift is invested:

  • For Employee Payroll Deduction go online to ESS (directions below) or fill out the form and securely deliver to the Foundation. 
  • Donate your paid time off. You can designate a one-time or ongoing donation of your PTO if you have accrued at least 80 hours. Those hours are converted to cash and donated to the Foundation. Download donation form, fill it out and securely mail or deliver to the Foundation.
