Over the years, St. Michael Medical Center employees have given more than $700,000 in support of programs, needed equipment and projects that enhance the services St. Michael provides to the communities it serves.
The boomerang concept was introduced in 2008 as a way to harness the impact that workplace giving can have on our organization. Gifts are a lot like boomerangs; once given, they return in the form of vital equipment, education and program support.
Employee giving has a very real impact on our patients’ lives and it is our hope that you will consider a gift that will change, save and positively impact the lives of those we serve. Employees participate by completing a pledge form and sending it via postal or interoffice mail to the Foundation.

The St. Michael Foundation’s Boomerang Fund is a grant-making fund supported 100% by St. Michael employees through their charitable donations made via the Employee Giving Program.

Employee giving participants comprise the Spirit of St. Michael Council. Council members help the St. Michael Foundation grow and strengthen the powerful legacy of generosity at St. Michael by sharing our impact with others; encouraging others to support our efforts; and review and grant Boomerang Fund requests. The council will meet six times a year. Please contact the St. Michael Foundation if you are interested in joining the Spirit of St. Michael council.
