What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Infants and Children

Atrium Health Foundation focuses its philanthropic efforts on initiating fund-raising projects that enhance wellness, medical education, research and the healthcare delivery system. The Foundation oversees more than 200 separate donor-restricted funds benefiting a wide variety of facilities and programs within the Atrium Health (a self-supporting, public, not-for-profit healthcare provider). These funds support medical research, educational and outreach activities, special needs projects and facilities enhancements The Foundation also works to secure government and private foundation grants in support of special projects and activities at Atrium Health.

The 'Infants & Childrens' area of fundraising at Atrium Health benefits patient programs, services, research, facilities improvements, technology, and equipment at Atrium Health's Levine Children's Hospital and Jeff Gordon Children's Hospital.

Population(s) Served

Levine Cancer Institute was formed in 2010 by Atrium Health as a part of an innovative vision to bring world-class cancer care directly to our communities. A $20 million gift from the Leon Levine Foundation enabled our vision to become a reality.

Population(s) Served

(Carolinas Center for Parkinson Disease and Movement Disorders; McColl-Lockwood Laboratory for Muscular Dystrophy Research; Carolinas ALS/Neuromuscular-MDA Center; Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia; Carolinas Comprehensive Epilepsy Center; Carolinas Stroke Network; and the Carolinas MS Center)

Population(s) Served

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, so it’s important to fight it aggressively.

With support of members of the community, Atrium Health and Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute are doing just that. From outreach and prevention to cardiac rehabilitation to supporting heart transplants, donors make a critical difference in people’s lives.

Charitable contributions support patients services ranging from Cardiac Rehabilitation, to Pediatric Congenital Heart Disease, to broad support for services and research conducted by Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute.

Population(s) Served

Atrium Health is home to some of the most advanced medical research in the region. That means people in our community have access to the best treatments close to home, without having to travel far away and leaving friends and family behind. And generous donors are fueling much of the research, as well as helping educate future generations of doctors, nurses and other medical providers.

Carolinas Medical Center is an Academic Medical Center which provides the best patient care available. But its physicians and researchers also work to advance medical knowledge and improve the care provided to the communities we serve.

Philanthropy also improves patient care by improving the education of healthcare providers. For instance, donations support the purchase of simulation babies at the Carolinas College of Health Sciences, which allows future neonatal intensive care nurses to react to a variety of scenarios before working with real patients. Donations also fund scholarships for emergency medicine, pediatric education and nursing.

Population(s) Served

In an organization as broad as Atrium Health, there are numerous other causes that philanthropy supports. In this category, support can improve healthcare for patients in:

Facilities: Philanthropy supports initiatives at several Atrium Health facilities – including CMC-Mercy, CHS--Pineville and CHS-University.

Rehabilitation: Philanthropy also supports programs at Carolinas Rehabilitation, which helps patients who have experienced traumatic injuries, strokes, amputations or other conditions requiring physical rehabilitation. One such program is the Adaptive Sports & Adventures Program (ASAP), which is designed to challenge youth and adults with physical disabilities develop skills that will lead to and enhance an active and productive lifestyle – one without barriers or limits. You may designate your gift to this program specifically, or make a general fund to support other patient resources available at Carolinas Rehabilitation.

Pastoral care: Donations support the work of hospital chaplains who tend to patients’ emotional and spiritual needs through individual contacts and worship services.

Sports medicine: Atrium Health's sports medicine program helps athletes from Little League to the National Football League receive treatment and prevent injuries.
