WakeMed Gives employee giving campaign runs from October 1 through the end of the month. Our annual employee giving program is filled with fun events, delicious treats and plenty of opportunities to learn, engage and share WakeMed pride. 


Join the Society of 1961

Donors who invest $3,000 or more a year become members of the Society of 1961, named in honor of WakeMed’s founding year. Society members have made health and well-being a top philanthropic priority. The Foundation benefits from their trust, vision and generosity. Members receive an invitation to our annual Appreciation Gala and enjoy other opportunities to get an up-close view of the transformative power of health care — by interacting with the best minds and the biggest hearts across the WakeMed Health and Hospital system.
