“I have been a loyal supporter of Falmouth Hospital since I started working here in 1981. I have always been proud of the care we strive to provide.
Because of loyal donors, Cape Cod Healthcare (CCHC) has been able to become a healthcare facility that can provide outstanding services & model procedures, for our patients that were once only available in Boston or beyond. I want our Cape Cod patients to be comfortably accommodated right here, on our side of the bridges. Our community deserves this from Cape Cod Healthcare; they in turn will reward us for our loyalty and devotion to provide exemplary healthcare for them. I have been a patient of Cape Cod Healthcare's Cardiac Services and continue to be a patient of multiple services provided by CCHC. I am a contributor because it is my turn to reward Cape Cod Healthcare for their devotion to provide impeccable healthcare for myself and my family. Private contributions are the only way to help CCHC become a stronger medical force in our community."
-Julie Medeiros, Blood Bank Supervisor, Falmouth Hospital
“I support Cape Cod Healthcare, specifically the VNA of Cape Cod Senior Services, because I strongly believe in the mission and its services… I am proud to be part of the organization with such longevity, providing home health and hospice services to all ages in the community."
- Colette Silverman, VNA Chief Administrative Officer, CCHC Director of Quality
“I am grateful for the opportunity to go back to school and get my bachelor’s degree, and to raise my family. I’ve made a lot of friends from the hospital and learned a lot of life lessons and I hope I’ve made a difference. I think more importantly are the lessons and moments I have been privileged to be a part of through our patients.”
- Abigail Adams, Nurse Manager, Falmouth Hospital
“I have chosen to give to Cape Cod Healthcare because I am a very proud employee of the system. My family and my husband’s family have had expert care and compassion here for over 85 years. Both my parents and my husband’s parents were born at Cape Cod Hospital. I was fortunate to volunteer at Cape Cod Hospital when I was in high school, an experience that paved the way for my career choice in health care.”
- Lynn Shields, Director of Clinical Research & Compliance, CCHC
“I share because CCH pays my salary and supports my family. Why not give back to my job which ultimately benefits me? I have been very blessed here for the past almost 15 years. Also, it is a tax write off and it’s my way of saying thanks. I have worked at other hospitals over my career and this hospital has the best benefits of all.”
- Debra Greene, Radiology Technician, Cape Cod Hospital
How much should I give?
Giving is personal and only you can determine what the right amount is for you.
Is my gift tax-deductible?
Yes. An outright gift of cash, vacation time or donations made through payroll deduction, are all deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
When will the payroll deduction begin?
Payroll deduction is available and encouraged for all employees. Payments will begin to be deducted within 30 days of receiving your signed gift agreement. Arrangements can be made if you need to begin your pledge payments at a different time.
If I leave CCHC, do I have to fulfill my pledge?
Your pledge is not a legally binding contract. It is simply a commitment made by you to support CCHC’s current fundraising initiative. If you leave CCHC and elect not to fulfill your commitment, no attempt will be made to deduct the remaining balance from your final paycheck.
If my circumstances change, can I alter my pledge?
Everyone’s life can change and so do financial circumstances. Should that happen, please contact the CCHC Foundation at 508/862-5600 and we will adjust your pledge accordingly. For accounting purposes, all changes must be made in writing.
Who will know if I made a gift?
Confidentiality is very important to us. Only the staff at the CCHC Foundation and Payroll Department (if you choose to use payroll deduction or donate vacation time) will know what you have given.
