COVID-19 Donation Page

As you probably know, Wake County currently has more confirmed cases of COVID-19 than any other region in North Carolina. As the only community health system with seven emergency departments and three hospitals throughout the region, WakeMed is prepared to play a significant role in our community’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Because of this, WakeMed Foundation is asking for your help during this critical time. WakeMed’s ability to care for this community, its incredible healthcare workers, and the most vulnerable members of our community can be scaled significantly with generous philanthropic support from donors like you.

This is an important opportunity to support the dedicated healthcare workers and organizations that have stepped up to put the health of this community first and foremost – in many cases, above their own families, friends and neighbors. Please show your support by making a contribution today. The funds we raise during this time will be allocated to the areas of greatest needs as it relates to COVID-19 response, including, but not limited to:

  • Increased Testing Capacity: Scaling operations to facilitate rapid COVID-19 testing at select outpatient location(s) for both the community and our healthcare workers.
  • Telemedicine & Community Support: Deploying telemedicine to area homeless shelters throughout the community – which will reduce emergency room volumes at a critical time and allow for the rapid screening of a vulnerable population to reduce community spread of COVID-19.
  • Helping Those in Crisis: WakeMed’s Patient & Family Support fund provides resources to patients and families in crisis due to COVID-19 such as food, transportation, childcare and/or housing.
  • Supporting Healthcare Workers: WakeMed’s Employee Assistance Fund provides financial resources to healthcare workers experiencing hardship due to COVID-19 such as illness, childcare, and/or other emergency situations. This fund also enhances WakeMed’s ability to implement employee support programs for healthcare workers during this difficult time.
  • Other urgent projects and programs identified by clinical leaders relates to COVID-19.

Much like the spread of the virus we’re fighting, the incredible power of community giving is exponential. By giving to support our efforts, your contributions will impact the lives of many.
