Our Teams Raise Funds for the Foundation
In late 2021, the Fresenius Medical Care Foundation (the Foundation) ran a very successful six-week “Who Cares?” fundraising campaign. The campaign featured several current donors and was designed to show the incredible impact we have when our donors come together to help employees in need.
One our CARES Fund champions, Andy Pate, President and Chief Operating Officer of Fresenius Kidney Care, decided to do some additional fundraising. Andy held the Inaugural Dallas-Ft Worth CARES Fund Golf Outing.
“I wanted to organize a fundraiser for the CARES Fund because I’ve seen firsthand what a difference it can make in the lives of our employees,” said Andy. “We are all one Fresenius family, and it’s incredible to see the impact we can have when we come together, every donation counts and helps our employees who need it.”
The team at FreseniusRx also decided to do some additional fundraising. FreseniusRx chose the CARES Fund as the organization to support for their annual FRx Give Back Day. The FRx Give Back Day fundraiser was led by Dustin Poole, Manager HR Program.
"This year FreseniusRx asked to support our colleagues in need by donating to the CARES Fund," said Dustin. Our annual Frx Give Back Day turned into a week with more than 50 of our employees participating and raising funds!"
Thanks to all the individuals and teams of supporters who came together to provide support of the “Who Cares?” campaign. With your help, we raised more than $250,000 for our employees in need and the CARES Fund donations continue to grow with ongoing payroll giving.
