We are writing to ask you to join each of us in support of the 2011 Yearly Employee Support (YES) Campaign. For years, this annual campaign has helped to provide the margin of excellence needed to change what's possible in patient care, research and health-related education. We hope that you will join us in making an important contribution toward this pursuit.
Employees Gerald Garza, left, and Jim Fisher, right, are congratulated by MUSC President Dr. Ray Greenberg during the 2011 Yearly Employee Support Campaign Loyalty Awards Ceremony April 4. Garza and Fisher, along with Betts Ellis, Sherry Gillespie-Miller and Margaret Schachte, have been donating to the campaign since its inception in 1985. More than $6 million has been donated to support the university's mission. To donate, visit http://www.musc.edu.
The campaign is an internal fund-raising drive that allows us all to make a personal gift to the MUSC Foundation fund(s) of our choice. Some choose to support medical research, while others contribute to scholarships, outreach programs, the medical center or their own department. With more than 1,200 funds from which to choose, you are sure to find a program that has special meaning for you.
Thank you for all that you do every day. At MUSC, every employee plays an important part in making this a special place for the students, patients and families who have entrusted us with an important part of their lives. Now, you have the opportunity to change what's possible for these individuals through a gift to the YES Campaign.
With deepest appreciation,
Raymond S. Greenberg, MD, PhD, MUSC President
W. Stuart Smith, VP for Clinical Operations and Executive Director, Medical Center
Stephen A. Valerio, Chief Executive Officer, University Medical Associates
Howard A. Evert, MD, Carolina Family Care President
