What Matters Most: The Northwell Health Employee Giving Program
No matter how big or small, your donation means we’ll be able to support what matters most together and make a real difference in patients' lives.
Many of our people already donate and participate in the Northwell Health Walk and Casual for Cohen. Now, team members can support by enrolling in payroll deduction, making a one-time gift or contributing myRecognition points. All participants are encouraged to give at the level they feel comfortable and have the choice of the program they would like to support. Thank you for helping us fulfill our higher purpose to make healthcare better.

Where's the relay going?
Follow the relay!
Our first What matters most Relay kicks off on Oct. 25. Traveling to several sites across our footprint, we’ll share stories from employees who are passionate about giving to Northwell. The relay culminates on Northwell’s Employee Giving Day on Dec. 3. Join in the fun! Our year-end goal is to have 10,000 team members participate in one or more of our giving opportunities.View map (PDF)
Are you ambassador material?
I give to Northwell to help support the discovery of new breakthroughs in science and technology because our future depends on it.
Nathalie Excellent, coordinator, Patient Access Services
Northwell has always been a part of my life. I was born at Long Island Jewish Medical Center and my mother also works for Northwell. I know that behaviors are contagious and when people see me giving back to Northwell, others may follow. I hope that my team members, and the community at large, are inspired to give back as well.
Michael Hill, concierge, Cohen Children's Medical Center
My sense of gratitude has grown stronger through the years, more so, after my daughter was very sick and Cohen Children’s Medical Center saved her life. I give to Northwell and became an ambassador because it gives me a happy heart and I want to help save more lives.
