At the Medical University of South Carolina we know that you give so much of your time and talents to change what’s possible for this state and beyond. When you make a gift to the Yearly Employee Support (YES) Campaign, you have the privilege of seeing firsthand how these contributions make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families. Your personal dedication sends a powerful message that MUSC is committed to providing exceptional patient care, education and research to the community we serve.
Gifts may be made via payroll deduction, PTO donation, or as a one-time gift or pledge by credit card, check, or stock transfer. All gifts made to the Employee Giving Campaign are tax-deductible. The Internal Revenue Service asks that we inform you that no goods or services are received in return for your donation.
