Healthcare Employee Aid Program

To Donate


Lexington Clinic Foundation seeks to respond to the needs of healthcare and first responder employees who have incurred an economic impact due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Programs currently in place with most banks allow for a break in payments of mortgage and auto loans, but other ongoing expenses, such as food and fuel, will continue in every household.
Lexington Clinic Foundation believes this is where an opportunity for groceries and other basic necessities would be valued by those individuals. Our Healthcare Employee Aid Program offers assistance to individuals via a short online application resulting in a $50 Kroger gift card mailed to their address. 
We are grateful for the opportunity to provide assistance to our fellow healthcare and first responder employees but we can’t do it alone!

We need your help! Please join us! 

Please consider making a gift to the Healthcare Employee Aid Program.

You may designate your gift to be for employees of Lexington Clinic, UK Healthcare, Baptist Health, St. Joseph Health, or general healthcare employee. Your gift will be matched dollar-to-dollar up to $5,000!

Please note funding is limited and applicants will be prioritized based on the criteria above.
