CDH Workplace Giving Campaign Success
Manager Invited to Speak at National Conference
WINFIELD, Ill., January 22, 2007 — Employees of Central DuPage Hospital open their hearts and lives to give back to others every day. Now they are giving more through their paychecks, $243,291 to be exact.
Each year the Central DuPage Health Foundation, the fundraising and donation processing arm of Central DuPage Hospital and its affiliated agencies, coordinate a Workplace Giving Campaign. All members of the community of caregivers are invited and encouraged to make personal contributions to support the hospital system and core health partners.
Employees are given a choice as to where their donation can be directed – the United Way, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association or to the Foundation. Central DuPage Health Foundation donations are subdivided by CNS Home Health & Hospice in Carol Stream, Wynscape Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Wheaton, Central DuPage Hospital or designated to the greatest need inside the hospital.
“Central DuPage employees rank in our list of top four hospital payroll donors in the state,” says Lisa Langas, national workplace giving consultant from the American Heart Association. “The support they provide is phenomenal.”
Due in part to her role in managing Central DuPage Health 2007 record-breaking workplace giving campaign, Holly Kulikowski, annual programs manager for the Central DuPage Health Foundation, was invited by the American Heart Association to speak at their national training and strategy session in Dallas in January.

Kulikowski is the only invited panelist representing hospitals/health systems.
