INDIANAPOLIS – Franciscan St. Francis Health has received the 2012 Distinguished Campaign for the largest increase in contributors from United Way of Central Indiana.

The number of Franciscan St. Francis employee donors increased by 109 percent last year with nearly $70,000 raised, far exceeding the organization’s annual goal.

The hospital also was presented with the Company That Cares Award, which recognizes organizations in a six-county area who achieve fundraising and participation goals, and surpass benchmarks in volunteer community participation. Franciscan St. Francis also received the Breakthrough Award for having a more than 30 percent increase in giving compared to the previous year.

“”I’m grateful for this recognition and especially proud of our employees for showing they care, not only through the excellent work they do daily, but also through their support of great organizations such as United Way of Central Indiana,” said Robert J. Brody, president and chief executive officer for Franciscan St. Francis Health.

For more than 90 years, United Way of Central Indiana has supported programs and agencies focused on education, income, health and basic needs.
