October 1, 2020

Jefferson Health – New Jersey has received a “Companies That Care” Award from the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey (CIANJ) in recognition of the generous donations provided through its recently renamed Devine Fund for Employee Assistance.

Since 2006, the Jefferson New Jersey employee assistance fund — now called the Devine Fund in honor of former Jefferson NJ President Joseph W. Devine, who retired earlier this year — has helped nearly 500 employees facing unforeseen financial hardship, giving out more than $700,000. For each request, the Devine Fund provides grants of up to $2,000 following a rigorous application review and approval process.

The Devine Fund for Employee Assistance embodies of our culture of caring,” said Jeffrey Dubnow, Associate VP of Development, Jefferson Health Foundation – New Jersey. “Our organization’s mission statement is ‘We Improve Lives,’ and that includes each other. We thank CIANJ for recognizing Jefferson Health – New Jersey as a ‘company that cares.’”

Along with employee participation, the Devine Fund accepts tax-deductible donations from community members and businesses interested in helping Jefferson Health “heroes” facing financial challenges brought on by any number of reasons, from illness to a family member’s job loss.
