Frequently Asked Questions
The Employee Giving Campaign allows every member of the SSM Health family to support their local ministry or the ministries of their choice through a personal financial contribution.
Funds raised through the campaign support your ministry’s Employee Relief Fund, areas of greatest need, as well as many of the programs and services that help provide exceptional care to those we serve. Every gift, no matter the amount, makes a significant difference in the lives of our patients and your fellow colleagues in need of assistance.

Payroll deductions are available for SSM Health employees at a minimum gift of $1 per-pay-period per funding option, and we have 26 pay periods each year. For example, a gift of $1 per-pay-period = $26/year, a gift of $2 per-pay-period = $52/year. To see what your total yearly contribution would be based on the payroll deduction amount, click HERE. Gifts will be deducted through payroll starting with the next pay period. Payroll deductions will automatically continue each year, unless changed by the employee.
If you donated last year via payroll deduction, your payroll deductions will automatically continue at the same giving amount. No action is needed on your part. If you want to make a change to your current deductions, please see question below: “If I want to make a change to my current deductions.”
