Wayne UNC Health Care has a legacy of supporting the communities we serve. Our commitment to a healthy community extends beyond the walls of our facilities. Every year we provide philanthropic support for projects and programs that influence wellness, quality of life, and the environment in our communities.

How Proposed Projects are Selected for Funding

Check our funding considerations if you want to propose a project or program to Wayne UNC. Generally, we’ll support projects that:

  • Match the mission and values of Wayne UNC Health Care
  • Impact or help improve the health status of the community
  • Aid health care agencies, which provide the community with education, health, and research assistance
  • Support the underserved and poor in our community
  • Help children, adults, and families learn important life skills needed to be successful students, parents, employees, employers, community citizens, and leaders
  • Improve economic development within Wayne County

Wayne UNC awards funds annually to meet changing community needs and to address new challenges. Our support one year does not guarantee continued or future funding.

  • High school after-prom donations, pageants, or field trips

  • Commercial, for-profit businesses
