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 grants proposals over sponsorship requests, therefore sponsorship of events are limited and highly competitive. If you have a signature event, please include it in the charitable contribution application.

Please evaluate your funding needs, program goals and desired outcomes to determine which funding program to pursue.
