5 ways to give back in 2018

By McKenna Hoecherl

Giving back to a cause that benefits your community is a significant, meaningful way to care for others, no matter how big or small the contribution. There are countless ways you can support health and healing in your community. Here are some ways you can help make a difference for thousands of MultiCare patients and their families in 2018:


1. Find your cause, then discover smart ways to give
Discover your passion for giving back by finding a cause (or causes) to support that are meaningful to you. Decide on a cause that’s close to your heart, then find out what you can do to support it. Explore creative ways you can give back through monthly gifts, stock transfers, matching gifts from your employer, deferred gifts through your retirement account, rollovers through your IRA and more. You can browse this site to get some ideas, too.

2. Attend an event
Get out and about and register for one (or more) of our philanthropic events in 2018: Corks & Crush, Sound to Narrows, Mary Bridge Children’s Courage, Rock the Foundation, Come Walk With Me, and Festival of Trees’ Gala and Tinsel on the Town.

3. Start building your legacy
One of the most impactful ways to make an investment in the healthy future of your community is to give back through your will, trust or other type of legacy gift. To learn more about how to make a flexible legacy gift and even chat with professional advisors who can help you decide on the best option for you, visit multicarelegacy.org.

4. Create your own fundraiser
Are you passionate about helping children and have your own ideas for a unique fundraiser? A giveback program through your business? A sporting event? An upcoming wedding, birthday or baby shower where you would like friends and family to make a donation instead of giving presents? Contact Christina Turner at cturner@multicare.org, who can help make your fundraising dreams a reality.

5. Volunteer
Giving your time can be just as valuable as giving money. MultiCare volunteers provide important support in promoting our mission of partnering for healing and a healthy future.
