Get Involved!

Make an impact! With you, we are committed to making better health care a reality in eastern North Carolina. Through your generous donations and unwavering support, we are experiencing remarkable growth and developing new relationships and partnerships that allow us to transform health care from Windsor to Kenansville and from Tarboro to the coast – and many communities in between.

ECU Health Cancer Care

We’ve used Foundation funds to increase early detection and screening, as well as survivorship and support programs — but we need to do more. Why? Because eastern North Carolina has a higher cancer mortality rate than the rest of the state — a statistic we can change with your help.

Children's Miracle Network

Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has been raising funds for hospitals across the United States and Canada — and our very own Maynard Children’s Hospital is one of them.

ECU Health Heart & Vascular

With internationally recognized specialists in cardiovascular care, Vidant Health offers the very best in heart and vascular services at every one of our hospitals. Our expertise comes together, however, at East Carolina Heart Institute — an incredible state-of-the-art facility made possible largely through Foundation funds.

Regional Partners

The Vidant Health Foundation raises funds and channels them toward health-related projects throughout eastern North Carolina. And the best part is that your gift stays local — every penny. It helps fund leading-edge equipment, new facilities and programs, meaning your friends and family can receive the care they need in their home community.
