Forsyth Medical Center

Our foundation

Novant Health Foundation Forsyth Medical Center

Through the Foundation, you can easily donate in a variety of ways. Your contributions can provide medical care for people who need help, fund research and wellness programs to improve healthcare, and support continuing education for medical center nurses and other care providers.

In the past, your donations have helped create a program to help economically challenged girls gain self-respect and adopt healthy lifestyles, services for underserved women during pregnancy, obesity and weight management programs for youth, a community health educator to work with Latina women, and expansion of mental health services.

General types of donations you can make to the Foundation include:

  • Unrestricted gifts which give us flexibility to meet our most critical needs.
  • Restricted gifts designated for a specific area, such as cancer, chaplaincy, nursing or hospice. Women may be especially interested in donating to – or joining – the Women’s Council.
  • Memorial gifts that memorialize or honor a family member or friend. Please call us or complete this online form. Then ask your funeral counselor and newspaper(s) to include the following in the obituary: Memorial gifts may be made to the Novant Health Foundation Forsyth Medical Center, 3333 Silas Creek Parkway, Winston-Salem, N.C. 27103.
  • Endowed gifts of $25,000 or more, which allow you to designate only the income of a fund to be used for the purposes you select.
  • Pledges by which you can spread your gift over a number of years.
  • Matching gifts by companies that double or even triple the amount of your individual gift. Please check with your company to see if it offers matching gift programs.
  • Gifts of assets including stocks, bonds, real estate, and personal property such as artwork, automobiles and jewelry.

Donations may be made at several established levels of giving, and special recognition and medical center naming opportunities are available at some levels. We appreciate all gifts, and no gift is too small.

Grateful patients - To recognize a medical center staff member or physician – or a group, unit or department – whose compassion and kindness made a difference during your own or a loved one’s hospital stay, please contact us.

Planned giving - Planned giving enables you to receive income and tax deductions during your lifetime – or to leave a legacy to benefit healthcare in your community for generations to come. There are many ways to accomplish these long-term goals.

Novant Health Foundation Forsyth Medical Center has gift planning assistance tools for you and your financial advisor to use in deciding the best plan for you. If you would like for one of the Foundation’s planning giving experts to go over the opportunities and options with you, please call 336-718-2101, or email us at

Events - Special events can combine fun and successful fund raising. Here are just a few examples:

  • The "Smash Cancer" Tennis Tournament to support the nurse navigator program at the Novant Health Derrick L. Davis Cancer Center

  • Athena's Run for educational resources, treatment support and research programs related to gynecologic cancers

  • Cowgirls with a Cause to provide mammogram screenings and diagnostic procedures for women with limited financial resources

  • The Garden Party, the Women's Council's signature fundraising event to improve the health of all women in our community

Contact us about upcoming events and how you can get involved.

Capital campaigns - If you have ever given to a capital campaign, you know that few things fill you with more pride than seeing a new building and knowing you had a part in creating it. Donors to Novant Health Foundation Forsyth Medical Center take pride in having helped to build many facilities on our Winston-Salem campus, including the state-of-the-art 350,000 square foot north tower pavilion, which opened in 2008 with 114 patient beds and expanded women's and cardiac services.

Capital campaigns are planned as needs arise for new buildings and equipment. Please consider supporting a future campaign, to ensure that we will always have excellent facilities in which to serve our communities’ healthcare needs.
