Awarded Community Impact Grant
The UAB Benevolent Fund proudly announces Magic City Harvest as the recipient of its first Community Impact Grant.
Magic City Harvest recovers two million pounds of excess perishable food, distributing daily to people struggling to obtain sufficient nutritious food. Each week over 5,000 men, women and children are served by Magic City Harvest’s collaboration with 40 local nonprofit agencies. UAB employee contributions, through the Community Impact Grant, will purchase an 18’ refrigerated truck that will allow Magic City Harvest to distribute an additional 500,000 pounds of salvaged food annually.
The Community Impact Grant process allowed employees an opportunity to listen to unique and worthy proposals designed to address challenging community issues. Following brief educational presentations by three finalists on December 10, 2014, employees cast their votes to determine the grant recipient. We are proud that UAB employees engaged in the Community Impact Grant process, further directing their Benevolent Fund contributions. The Community Impact Grant concept was well received by employees and by our community, and we hope to offer similar opportunities in the future. This is one more way the Benevolent Fund gives UAB employees a chance to transorm our community and people's lives.
UAB Benevolent Fund
Giving Made Easy
The Benevolent Fund makes giving easy through payroll deductions. Over the course of a year, your pledge combined with pledges from other employees will result in a tremendous amount of hope spread throughout our community. Your gift to the Benevolent Fund is tax deductible. We are counting on you to participate at the level that is right for you.
The Benevolent Fund, founded and governed by UAB employees, recognizes the importance of giving back to our community. It benefits more than 120 charitable and health organizations; additionally, it provides valuable assistance to qualifying co-workers through the Employee Emergency Assistance Program. Our energy for continuing this work is strong – we are excited about the addition of several new health agencies to the Fund this year.
Ordinary employees committed to making an extraordinary difference in our community is what the Benevolent Fund is all about. Help overcome hunger, violence, disease and dispair with your pledge to the Benevolent Fund which supports safe harbor, cutting edge medical research, nutritious meals, and healthcare. Your help is someone else’s hope!
