Cowboys Care Bull Bash

$31K Raised from Employee Giving

Posted on

We're proud to announce the launch of the Horizon Health Foundation, a non-profit, 501(c)3  division of the community-based health care entity, and results from their first annual free-will employee giving campaign. For 39 years, Horizon Health Care, Inc. has nearly 30 medical and dental clinics in South Dakota and has been providing locally based health care to rural South Dakota patients, no matter insurance status.

Formed in May 2016, the Horizon Health Foundation completed their first free-will employee giving campaign in the month of October 2016. Horizon Health Care employees raised $31,000 in cash and pledges and had a 35% participation rate, more than doubling the dollar amount goal. Donations go to the foundation funds of behavioral health, cancer care, charity care, diabetes, and greatest needs. The Foundation promises 100% of donations will go to patients and facilities in these fund areas.

The Foundation’s free-will employee giving campaign proves the nonprofit's commitment to their own values and vision. 

“Every day, we see our patients struggle with the decision to put food on the table or to get the care and prescriptions they need,” said John Mengenhausen, Horizon Health Care Inc. CEO and Foundation Board Member. “This spring, we decided it was time to pursue that mission, and Horizon Health Foundation was established to help our patients in need and ensure that health care remains in the rural communities for years to come.”

Tracy Pardy, Foundation Director, added, “In just six months of the new Foundation being built from the ground up, I'm very impressed with our employees enthusiasm and excitement for the Foundation and what it will truly mean for patient care for the future. Several employees have shared with me how inspiring it is to be part of the campaign and look forward to seeing the impact their dollars will make for our patients.”
