Employee and Retiree Giving

Together We Will Make a Difference

As an employee, you know the power of hope, health and healing. Your gift will help Mayo Clinic continue to transform medicine through innovations in patient care, research and education. Give to Mayo Clinic and start making it happen today.

William J. Mayo, M.D., and Charles H. Mayo, M.D., established a legacy of philanthropy when they bequeathed their medical practice and most of their personal assets to found Mayo Clinic. You help keep the founders' legacy alive by providing premier patient care that inspires others to become benefactors. The Because of You employee and retiree giving program is another opportunity to carry on the Mayo brothers' legacy.

Gifts of all sizes make a difference. You can designate your tax-deductible gift to any area of practice, education and research. Learn more by reading Because of You Frequently Asked Questions.

Ways to Give

Faces of Philanthropy

"I give because I've seen patients who have lost all hope until they come to Mayo Clinic."

- Marites Sayo, Mayo Clinic benefactor and employee

"As the Mayo Clinic Medical Transport team, we are the gateway to bring patients to a very special place of hope and healing, filled with remarkably talented people. It's amazing to be a part of the team and to be able to bring that unique Mayo Clinic care to the patient's bedside. We are on a very special mission to save lives."

- Meghan Lamp, Mayo Clinic benefactor and employee

Not only does Meghan care for patients every day, but she also contributes to the Poverello Foundation, which helps patients of Saint Marys Hospital cope with medical expenses.

"Dr. Raymond Lee encouraged me to come to Mayo Clinic for my residency. He said, 'To become a surgeon, you need to be trained by an "A" surgeon, otherwise you'll need to be retrained. Mayo has "A" surgeons.' He was right. There is a lot of expertise at Mayo Clinic and an expectation for excellence. I feel loyal to Mayo Clinic and try to support its mission and honor our values every day. Demonstrating that loyalty philanthropically is just one way leadership can express our commitment to Mayo Clinic."

- Charles Rosen, M.D., Mayo Clinic benefactor and employee
