The iGive Circle of Friends Giving Campaign completed the year with a tremendous showing of support for the healing ministry at Marian Regional Medical Center. Through the collective work of the employees and volunteers at Marian, the Circle of Friends Giving Campaign set a new record and raised more than $280,000 to benefit the programs and services found at Marian.

Giving is one of the defining characteristics of employees and volunteers at Marian. An astounding 68% of all employees, more than 1,325 individuals, chose to contribute. This is a testament to the culture of gratitude that is found in the patient rooms, hallways, and lobbies throughout the hospital.

“The Circle of Friends Giving Campaign supports every patient and family that walks through the doors at Marian. The culture of giving here at Marian is truly remarkable and helps fund vital needs that would not otherwise be possible,” Jessa Brooks, Vice President of Philanthropy shared.  “This campaign is a testament that every contribution, no matter the size, provides a lasting difference.”
