Together We Give. Together We Care. Together We Uplift. GivingTuesday 2021
GivingTuesday is a global day of generosity that takes place today, November 30, 2021, to unleash the power of radical generosity to transform communities and the world.
GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people to come together to thank, help, give, show kindness, and share what they have with those in need. Today, we ask you to join together with us as we uplift local UPMC employees with access to continued education.
The UPMC Horizon & Jameson Foundations’ Heart of Healthcare Scholarship supports current employees who are pursuing an advanced degree in nursing. Your support represents an investment in the education of those who receive the scholarship.
Sarah, recipient of the 2017 Heart of Horizon Scholarship said that the fund, “helped me to attain my goals of graduating from a Baccalaureate Program. Completing my degree allowed me to take a Nurse Leader position within UPMC and has also assisted me in pursuing my master’s degree. I am very thankful for the opportunities that this scholarship has helped provide.”
In turn, continued education equips your local hospital with the skills and expertise that allow us to give you and your loved ones the highest level of care possible. Ongoing and advanced training is vital to what we do, and it is in part made possible by the generosity of our community.
Sue, a patient at UPMC Horizon Greenville, said, “ER staff were excellent. My nurse took care of all of my needs and concerns. The 3rd-floor staff were kind, compassionate and knowledgeable of my care, and very professional. It was a good experience. All the staff are super. You are all doing a great job. Thank you and God bless all of you.”
