HR Giving Incentives

This year we are encouraging everyone to give or to keep giving! Click here to view previous winners and their prizes.

Note: Everyone who contributes during the campaign, or continues their continuous gift, will be eligible for drawings during the end of the campaign party; scheduled for Friday, April 10. More details regarding this celebration to come.

In order to encourage participation in this year’s HR campaign, we have sourced some great prizes that we will give away each week. Here are the rules of the game: 
  • The drawings are open only to HR employees
  • We will hold two drawings each week for three weeks. The winners will be drawn each Friday morning and announced via the HR Benevolent fund website
  • The first drawing will be Friday, March 6
  • To get your name in the drawing, you must do one of the following:
    • Pledge to become a first time Continuous Giver. This is someone who pledges either to give one hour pay per month, one percent of your pay per month or by donating a fixed amount per month. 
    • Pledge to give to any one-time gift (this could include UAB Habitat House). The amount of the one-time gift has to be $5 or greater
  • Turn your pledge form in to your Visionary team member. The Visionary will turn all pledges in every week by Thursday, 4pm. For additional pledge forms, please see your Visionary team member.
  • If you make a contribution online, please forward the verification email you receive to your Visionary team member so that we can ensure you are included in the drawings
  • Cash and Check can be accepted, but a pledge form will need to be filled out and turned in with your money.
  • If your name is pulled multiple times during the weekly drawings, you will win only the prize associated with the "first" time your name is pulled. The same individual cannot win more than one time during the weekly drawings. HOWEVER, each weekly winner will be eligible to participate in the drawings that will be held during the end of the campaign party (Date TBD).

A sample of the prizes are listed below:
