2023 RSFH Gives! Teammate Giving Campaign
At Roper St. Francis Healthcare, we believe in our mission of healing all people with compassion, faith and excellence. The RSFH Gives! Teammate Giving Campaign is a way you can continue that mission by giving back to help our patients, each other and the community.
We are excited to announce that this year is the 5th anniversary of the Roper St. Francis Foundation Teammate Giving Campaign! Beginning on July 17, the campaign will be led internally by our Foundation in partnership with Trident United Way and give you a convenient way once a year to donate. Just like last year, you can choose to support Roper St. Francis Healthcare, Trident United Way, or both if you wish.
As a teammate of a non-profit community hospital, you have a unique opportunity to enrich the wellness of your community beyond the excellent care and service you provide. From payroll deduction to PTO donations, there are many ways to give. No matter the size or designation, all donations will go to support either Roper St. Francis Healthcare or Trident United Way. We hope that the RSFH Gives! Campaign will continue to be an opportunity to celebrate our giving spirit as an organization.
Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Am I eligible to donate PTO?
To donate paid time off to the RSFH Gives! Campaign, a teammate must be in a benefits-eligible status for at least six (6) months of continuous service at the time of the donation. Donating paid time off may not reduce a teammate's overall paid time off balance below forty (40) hours for full-time teammates and twenty (20) hours for part-time teammates. Refer to PTO Policy # 7500-03-10 for more information.
Q: Are taxes taken out of my PTO donation?
Yes. Federal law requires that 39.65% of PTO contributions be withheld from your gift for Federal, State and FICA taxes. As an example, a teammate making $10.00 per hour donating 10 hours of PTO would be credited as making a contribution of $60.35 after taxes are withheld. Refer to PTO Policy #7500-03-10 for eligibility info.
To become a 2024 Rx Society member, the total contribution should be a minimum of $1,500 after taxes are withheld.
Q: I can't make a big gift right now. Can I still contribute?
Your participation, rather than amount donated is what is most important to our campaign. Gifts of any size demonstrate your commitment to our mission and appreciated. Also, you can log on and select to be a supporter of our campaign without making any pledge commitments.
Q: Can I give directly to a teammate in need?
The RSFH Gives! Campaign adds resources to the Teammate Emergency Fund, which is managed by the Mission Department. To ensure the Fund is used for our teammates in critical need, donations may not be designated to a specific co-worker.
Q: Can I designate my gift to support more than two designations for Roper St. Francis Healthcare?
No. You may select a maximum of two projects. Should you decide to select two funds, your gift total will be split evenly between each one. The Foundation recommends a minimum total of $50.00 for split gifts.
Q: How will I be recognized for my contribution?
All donors to the RSFH Gives! Campaign will be recognized in a special donor roster following the campaign. Donors who give to support Roper St. Francis Healthcare or Trident United Way will be recognized per the stewardship guidelines of each organization. All donors who make a gift of $50 or more will receive a RSFH Gives! t-shirt or water bottle.
Q: How will I receive my campaign swag item?
At the end of the campaign, teammates who pledge $50 or more will be able to select a swag item (t-shirt or water bottle) through a link that will be sent to their RSFH email. This link will direct teammates to an online store. Swag items will only be available during the campaign July 17th - August 4th. All items will be delivered to all employees who selected an item after the campaign closes to the location of their choosing.
Q: Is there a continuous option for giving?
With future changes coming to our giving platform, we will be discontinuing the continuous giving option. Similar to open enrollment for our benefits, we ask that you now go in each year to confirm and update your pledge. This will give you an opportunity to make changes to your pledge without having to contact the Foundation office.

- Gives! Club: $50-$1,499 (Listing in the Gives! donor roster, t-shirt or water bottle)
