Meet the Non-Profits that received Critical Funds from CarolinaEast Foundation

CarolinaEast Foundation donated $107,764 to Community Efforts

Did you know that the CarolinaEast Health System pays 100% overhead to the CarolinaEast Foundation? That means 100% of the money raised by the Foundation goes right back into our community!

CarolinaEast Foundation Chairman of the Board, David Wilkins, and Executive Director, Jill Thompson, presented the grant checks to eleven non-profits in Eastern North Carolina.

I encourage you to take time to watch this video, as it shows the people connected to the non-profits and gives you a glimpse into the people who truly benefit from the CarolinaEast. Health System and Foundation close partnership.

Today, I learned about non-profits that I didn’t know existed. Maybe you will too!
