Founded in 2009, Get Involved Now (GIN) is a Maryland-based non-profit organization dedicated to meeting the unique needs of patients and families through community service and grant awards.
The mission of Get Involved Now is to support patients and their families as they go through life-defining healthcare moments. To fulfill this mission, GIN engages GetWellNetwork employees in volunteering and philanthropy to give back to the communities in which we live, work and serve.
GIN’s community outreach projects focus on pediatric, high risk pregnancy and Leukemia & Lymphoma patients and their families. Get Involved Now organizes and implements bimonthly volunteer opportunities for GetWellNetwork employees. These philanthropic activities include: play dates with pediatric patients, manicures and meals for high risk pregnancy patients, blood drives, phone-a-thons, “adopting” families for holiday gift-giving, and Team N Training endurance events to raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The GIN Grant Program is led by GetWellNetwork employees serving on the GIN committee, which reviews and awards two types of grants: Get Involved Now Grants and Get Well Soon Grants. Get Involved Now Grants are awarded to employees of GetWellNetwork who lead or play a significant role in designing and implementing a project to help patients and patient families in their community. Get Well Soon Grants are awarded to GetWellNetwork employees and Volunteer Services employees of hospitals affiliated with GetWellNetwork who lead or play a significant role in designing or implementing a project to improve the hospital experience for patients and families.
Together, GIN’s community services projects and grant programs help to enrich our communities and fulfill the mission of our organization.
