For our healthcare community and our world, it appears we still have a long road ahead of us.

COVID-19, better known as the coronavirus, has forced us into a fierce battle against its global spread, and healthcare professionals across the Novant Health system are on the front lines.

That’s why we need your support, now more than ever.

Novant Health foundations provide critical funds and resources across our network, which includes more than 1,600 physicians and over 28,000 team members who provide care at more than 640 locations to more than 4.4 million patients in 2019 alone.

Our mission is to improve the health of our communities, one person at a time, and we want to let you know we’re ready no matter the challenge. Our team members quickly adapted to critical safety measures and a vastly different environment without skipping a beat. From nurses who support our patients at the bedside to environmental and food services teams who keep our facilities up and running, each team member works every day with compassion and courage to deliver remarkable healthcare.

Learn more below about how can you help support team members through The Hope for Remarkable Team Aubergine Fund, and read stories of how your contributions already have made a lasting impact in team members’ lives.


The Hope for Remarkable Team Aubergine Fund

The Hope for Remarkable Team Aubergine Fund (formerly the Novant Health COVID-19 Disaster Relief Fund) has helped us rise to the challenges brought on by the pandemic, and your gifts have done important and lifesaving work. Not only have the communities we serve benefited greatly as a result, but we’ve been able to protect and support Novant Health team members as they demonstrate their selfless commitment and tireless efforts on the front lines.

Through generous donations from you, our donors, we were able to care for our remarkable team members serving on the front lines every day.

Inspiration through storytelling: share your story of kindness

If there’s something we’ve been reminded of lately, it’s that kindness and connection mean everything. Sharing a story of how you’ve been impacted by someone’s kindness can inspire us to give more, serve more, and most important, to spread more kindness.

Serving our communities during coronavirus

We’ve focused on reducing disparities by ensuring everyone has access to the tools they need to keep themselves from getting — and spreading — the virus. The Hope for Remarkable Team Aubergine Fund also enabled us to provide vital medical equipment such as ventilators and telemedicine devices, set up additional screening centers in underserved communities and purchase tablets so patients can stay connected to their families and friends.

One initiative to fight disparities is our ‘Mask the City’ campaign, designed to ensure everyone in the markets we serve has the masks they need to protect themselves and our communities.

This fight is far from over. Without your help we would not have been able to accomplish all we have so far, and we look forward to carrying on this important work. Thank you for joining us in this critical mission during a time of great need.

The road will be long, but Novant Health Foundation is proud to support our team members, patients and the communities we serve every step of the way.

Please stay safe and healthy. We will get through this crisis – together.
