As a Mosaic Life Care caregiver, you are invited to support Mosaic Life Care Foundation through its Healthy Today, Healthy Tomorrow and Healthy Together initiatives. Thanks to the generosity of careGIVERS like you, we are making a difference for those in our region.
We ask for your support so that together, we may create a Healthy Today, a Healthy Tomorrow and be Healthy Together. As you are making your Annual Benefits Enrollment elections, you will also be given the opportunity to make your pledge during that time. If you have questions, please contact Philanthropy by calling (816) 271- 6792.
Three Areas of Giving
Mosaic is a life-care organization caring for patients in a healing environment. Healthy Today supports Compassionate Connected Care which ensures our patients and their families receive extra support to help make their stay comfortable and peaceful. Healthy Today also brings encouragement to our caregivers as they provide exceptional care for our patients.
By educating our children today, we create a Healthy Tomorrow. Through our sixth grade Civic Engagement Immersions and our high school e2 Fellowship, emPowerU programming ignites imagination and innovation to strengthen the next generation of our region’s leaders.
The Touchstone funds raised through the careGIVER Campaign are used to support caregivers who are in a financial hardship due to an unexpected change, such as a spouse losing a job, a sick child or caregiver illness. Quite often, help is provided with utilities, rent or mortgage. The Touchstone Caregiver Scholarship provides post high school or equivalency education financial support to immediate family members of Mosaic caregivers. A Healthy Together contribution allows caregivers to help caregivers during some of life’s biggest events.

How do PTO donations work?
Your Paid Time Off (PTO) hours are deducted from your available PTO time and changed to a monetary donation. You must donate a minimum of eight hours, but can donate as much as you like, as long as you have an available balance. PTO donation is NOT available to associate directors, managers, senior leadership, providers, wage differential or PRN caregivers.
Can I still designate my gift to a specific program or fund?
You are welcome to make a separate, one-time gift designated to an existing Mosaic Life Care Foundation fund outside of the careGIVER Campaign by visiting https://www.mlcfoundation.com/donate/ or by contacting philanthropy staff. If giving online, select “Mosaic Life Care, Medical Center,” then make the appropriate selection for further directing your gift. By selecting “Other,” you will have the opportunity to type in a specific fund.

Yes. You always have control over your donation amount and area(s) of giving. To make changes, please submit your request through Shared Services.
If I donate through payroll deduction, when will my pledge end?
