Let's Do This Together

How Your Donation Works
  • Needs Are Identified

  • Charitable Donation Is Given

  • The Foundation Puts Your Donation To Work

Cape Fear Valley Health is the philanthropic arm of Cape Fear Valley Health. Our mission is to serve the community by building awareness and philanthropic support for Cape Fear Valley Health. Our vision is to improve the health and wellness of the region we serve. All contributions go directly to programs and services which impact patient care. Though gifts made to the Foundation, patient care is enriched and our family, friends, colleagues and neighbors benefit from warm blankets, state of the art equipment, cuddly teddy bears and many more enhancements to their care, all because of your generosity.

The Foundation compiles a list of the needs and our community board deploys the funds. Last year the patient experience was enhanced by purchasing a patient lift. Training equipment was purchased. Equipment to provide a more effective method of location of tiny veins for our smallest patients is now available. All because of donors like you.

And It’s Not Just About Helping One Need.

Every Need Matters

Through the Foundation, you can be sure your gift is put to the very best use. The needs are great and there is much work to be done. We, like you, want the very best care for our community. Just imagine how you can impact our community by providing better care. Please join us today with by investing your charitable contributions to make a difference in the health and wellness of our community.
