American Cancer Society Hope Lodge program receives $30,000 from Paycom employees

OKLAHOMA CITY – (Feb. 1, 2023) – Paycom Software Inc. (NYSE: PAYC), a leading provider of HR software, recently donated $30,000 to the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge program, which provides free lodging to cancer patients undergoing treatment and their caregiver when away from home. The donation benefits Oklahoma City’s soon-to-open Chad Richison Hope Lodge, named after Paycom’s founder and CEO, and Dallas’ Gene and Jerry Jones Family Hope Lodge.

“The American Cancer Society Hope Lodge program fosters emotional connections and supportive communities among cancer patients facing the same journey,” said Tiffany McGowen, Paycom’s vice president of talent acquisition. “You cannot put a price on that, and Paycom is proud to contribute to such an important program.”

In Oklahoma alone, nearly 3,700 cancer patients travel at least 40 miles for life-saving treatment annually. Hope Lodge communities offer comfortable guest suites with private baths and other amenities like a communal kitchen, dining area, laundry rooms and community spaces — all at no cost to guests.

The donation was made through Paycom’s ongoing employee giving campaign and a one-to-one match made by Paycom. The employee giving program provides team members the opportunity to contribute to local and national causes that help ensure basic needs are met in the communities in which Paycom is based.

“The cost of cancer treatment often goes beyond medical bills alone,” said Michelle Fair, senior philanthropy director of the American Cancer Society. “Patients receiving treatment far from home face heightened financial burden from travel and lodging expenses. Our Hope Lodge communities reduce financial strain, make treatment more accessible and improve the quality of life for thousands of cancer patients each year. Donations like this from Paycom help further our mission of hope and give cancer patients and their families peace of mind.”

There are over 30 Hope Lodge facilities across the nation. In 2022, the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge communities provided 232,583 nights of free lodging to 14,057 individuals facing cancer, totaling an estimated $48,364,840 saved in hotel costs. The program has provided over 6 million nights of free lodging to cancer patients since its launch in 1970.
