Novant Health team members buy-in to helping others by donating more than $1.2 million

February 13, 2020

Each year, team members donate their time and money to local Novant Health foundations and community engagement nonprofit partners through our annual team member giving campaign, Giving. Serving. Together.

This past year, more than 4,700 team members pledged $1,290,176, as part of our commitment to saving lives and improving the health of our communities. Of that total, $645,923 was donated to support the work of our nonprofit partners, and $596,252 went directly to support Novant Health foundations, funding additional resources to continue providing remarkable care to those we serve.

Novant Health team members are an inclusive team of purpose-driven people inspired and united by our passion to care for each other, our patients and our communities.  In caring for each other, we pledged $125,082 last year to assist team members in crisis and more than $82,500 to support team members through programs like the Novant Health Upward Mobility RN Scholarship. Kimberly Hall and Brittney Samuels know firsthand how these donations impact lives: Giving. Serving. Together. donations helped Kimberly’s family rebuild after Hurricane Florence devastated their home, and contributions to the Upward Mobility scholarship allowed Brittney to accomplish her dream of becoming an RN.

In addition to monetary donations, team members also contribute their time as part of our collective effort to accelerate our mission, while contributing to the nonprofit partners whose missions align with our own.

In 2019, team members dedicated more than 1,600 hours to giving back through a variety of events focused on different community organizations and initiatives. Fifty hours of service, for instance, went toward planting 150 trees in the Hidden Valley community.

Volunteers devoted 350 hours to building an outdoor classroom and learning garden for students through the Out Teach “Big Dig” at Devonshire Elementary School. And more than 500 hours went toward helping the Second Harvest Food Bank prepare for the Emergency Food Assistance Program.

Supporting those in need is a time-honored tradition at Novant Health — one that shines especially bright during Giving. Serving. Together. Thank you to our team members for contributing your time, talent and resources through this critical campaign. Your dedication exemplifies our commitment to improving the lives of those who work and live in the communities we serve.

By giving and serving together, we make healthcare remarkable.
