Investment programs

The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated all of us to act differently – personally, as organizations and as a nation. Nowhere are these changes more evident than with healthcare systems across the globe and across the country. At Novant Health, our practice of giving to charitable organizations and support of community sponsorships is one area that is impacted by the current health crisis. To conserve critical resources and maximize our ability to provide direct patient care for the communities we serve, we are limiting charitable contributions and sponsorships at this time. Please contact us at the email addresses below with questions.

The mission of social responsibility at Novant Health is to improve the health of our communities, one person at a time, through charitable contributions and strategic partnerships that align with our three investment priorities of health and human services, environment and education. Through these investment priorities, Novant Health supports community-based programs that address health inequities and improve health outcomes. Below are our new investment priorities, with guiding objectives.

Novant Health is committed to supporting the communities it serves through charitable contributions that are designed to improve the health of the community by investing in community-based programs that align with our three investment priorities of health and human services, environment, and education. Priority will be added to organizations with programs that improve the identified health needs of the at-risk populations in the communities we serve, identified in the Community Health Needs Assessment.

Novant Health also provides sponsorships for specific events and programs. Due to our focus on health impact we prioritize charitable contributions over sponsorship requests, therefore sponsorship of events are limited and highly competitive.
