Paycom Employees Give $20,000 to National Health Care Nonprofits

May 18, 2020

OKLAHOMA CITY (May 13, 2020) – Paycom Software, Inc., (NYSE:PAYC), a leading provider of comprehensive, cloud-based human capital management software, donated $10,000 each to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and to the Johns Hopkins’ COVID-19 Response Fund. Paycom employees individually contributed to the funds as part of regular monthly donation initiatives.

Paycom’s gift to NAMI comes during Mental Health Awareness Month, while the contribution to the Johns Hopkins’ COVID-19 Response Fund will support their ongoing efforts for virus-related research.

“Both of these organizations do so much for the medical community and patients across the country,” said AJ Griffin, Paycom’s director of governmental affairs. “Now, more than ever, we want them to know we appreciate their hard work.”

NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. It is an association of more than 500 local affiliates who work in communities to raise awareness and provide support and education not previously available to those in need.

“Mental health needs have become even more acute during the COVID-19 public health crisis due to the need for social distancing and isolation,” said James Bost, executive director of NAMI Oklahoma. “Paycom’s gift, made possible through employee contributions, has allowed us to set up virtual support groups and additional outreach within our community. We look forward to continuing this partnership, which benefits all Oklahomans.”

Johns Hopkins Medicine is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing the highest quality patient health care in the treatment and prevention of human illness. The organization has teams working around the clock to help patients with COVID-19 and its scientists are tirelessly pressing onward to expose the biology of the disease, advance testing capacity and develop both a preventive vaccine and a curative treatment.

“This pandemic is placing extraordinary demands on our people, our resources and our finances,” said Paul Rothman, M.D., dean and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine. “We are working urgently to do all we can to help our patients and our communities, and we very much appreciate the generosity of Paycom for this much-needed support.”

The donations come as part of Paycom’s ongoing giving campaign, in which employees have the opportunity to donate to a variety of local and national causes. Additional ways they give back include volunteer events and service initiatives that strengthen families and communities.

In the first quarter of 2020, Paycom has given to 55 different organizations across 23 states with missions that serve children, homeless youth, mental health and education.
