The Tenet Care Fund: helping one another through unexpected hardship

 

care fund logoThe Tenet Care Fund is a 501(c) (3) public charity that provides financial assistance to employees who have experienced hardship due to events beyond their control. This includes natural disasters, extended illnesses or injuries, and the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We set up the Care Fund to provide hope and financial support for employees when faced with difficult and unforeseen circumstances. This program also enables us to offer employees a mechanism to make donations that benefit fellow team members in need. 

The Care Fund was founded by Tenet employees and exists primarily through the generosity of fellow team members. The Care Fund’s Board of Directors and Care Committee serve as stewards of the program to ensure that the grants awarded meet specific criteria and guidelines. Assistance for emergencies and crisis situations are considered on a case-by-case basis. 

For those who wish to contribute to the Care Fund, employees may do so through deductions from their paycheck and/or by making separate contributions. We also appreciate the generosity of those in our community who don’t work at Tenet but would like to make a contribution in honor of our heroic and hardworking team members, particularly those on the frontlines of COVID-19.
