Monthly Giving

Monthly Giving

A little goes a long way with Rush’s monthly giving program. You can conveniently support Rush in exactly the way you want and at an amount that fits your monthly budget. These steady contributions ensure resources will be there when Rush’s people and programs need them most.  

Become a monthly donor  

Make a monthly gift payable from your credit or debit card online. A minimum of $10 is required.  

By making a monthly gift of $84, you can join Rush University Medical Center’s Anchor Cross Society, which recognizes donors who support us with $1,000 or more each year. Learn more about giving societies at Rush.  

Rush employees and payroll deduction

As part of the Rush family, you are among thousands of colleagues working together in service of Rush's mission. Your support is vital to our collective efforts and, most importantly, to the patients we all serve. Donations of different sizes from Rush employees, faculty and staff make a significant impact on Rush's programs and efforts. We hope you'll consider joining the hundreds of Rush employees who contribute. How to donate:

  • Monthly payroll deduction: Payroll deduction is the easiest way for Rush employees to make a sustaining gift with lasting impact.
    • If you are a Rush University Medical Center employee, you can sign up for a recurring gift via Rush payroll deduction by emailing Annual Giving at giving@rush.edu.
    • Or if you are a Rush Copley Medical Center employee, please email lisa.lapinski@rushcopley.com to arrange a recurring gift. 
       
  • One-time gifts: You may also make a one-time gift with your credit card online or by emailing either of the addresses above.
