Thank you to all staff present and past who have participated in employee giving opportunities.  Their generosity has contributed more than $100,000 to support the care we provide at Orleans Community Health.

“Together We Are Stronger”

We are bringing back the EMPLOYEE GIVING PROGRAM as an opportunity to contribute to our projects and campaigns with 100% of your gift directly benefiting the departments and services of your choice at Orleans Community Health.  So far in 2021 OCH Employees have donated $8,500!!!!!


We have designed this program with three options that give you the flexibility to choose how you would like to participate.  Enrollment is always open.

  • Payroll deductions either weekly or one-time gift(s) deducted post-tax from your paycheck.
  • One-time donation either by credit/debit card or a personal check.
  • Online donations – make a one-time donation or you can set up an account to make a monthly or annual gift commitment.


You must complete the Employee Pledge Form in order for us to track who participates and to give you a small gift of appreciation for being a supportive member of the OCH community.

If you need help deciding where to designate your gift, then here are some areas where your gift is needed most right now……

Future Needs Fund

This fund is designed to support urgent requests for support by any department within OCH above and beyond the specific focus areas of the 2021 Campaign.  The Foundation is working to grow this fund in effort to honor these requests in a timely fashion.

General Fund

Donations to the General Fund primarily support the mission of the Orleans Community Health Foundation by helping with operating expenses.  This fund is also used by our Board of Directors to supplement any fund, event, or request from Orleans Community Health/Medina Memorial Hospital.

Other Ways To Participate

We understand that not everyone is able to give a monetary donation, but you still want a way to give back.  How about with your time?  Please consider joining me at a community volunteer project or at an event.  We always have a blast no matter what we are doing, especially if we join forces and do it together!
