Recognize Your Guardian Angel.

Patients and loved ones may offer a donation through the Novant Health Foundation in honor of a doctor, nurse, physician assistant, support team member, volunteer or unit and those individuals will receive a Guardian Angel award.

In honoring your guardian angel with a gift through the foundation, you directly support the education and wellbeing of the Novant Health team members who cared for you or your loved one. 

Your generosity enables team members to recharge and relax through wellness and resiliency programs, and expand their knowledge and skills through professional development opportunities. 

Every Story is a Gift.

Whether welcoming new life, honoring the memory of a loved one, or thanking the care teams who made a lasting impact during your stay, we want to hear your story. Tell us your story and we’ll share it with the team members you want to thank. Gratitude donations can be made in recognition of individuals, care teams, or departments.
