2017 Teammate Giving Campaign
Frequently Asked Questions

What is the NorthEast Foundation?
The NorthEast Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.  The mission of the NorthEast Foundation is to support the strategic plan of Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast by actively engaging citizens to participate in fundraising and friend-raising initiatives to better promote and meet the needs of the medical center.  The NorthEast Foundation is able to provide funding to CHS NorthEast because of the generous support of community members, corporations, foundations and teammates like you.

What is the Northeast Foundation Teammate Giving Campaign?
The Teammate Giving Campaign is an outreach effort by a group of teammate volunteers, combined with the NorthEast Foundation staff, to encourage everyone on the CHS NorthEast team to make charitable contributions in support of the programs and services provided by the hospital.  As teammates, we all play a key role in the daily care of the patients in our community.  Because CHS NorthEast is a not-for-profit hospital, we seek and accept donations from community members, corporations and foundations, in addition to our CHS NorthEast teammates.

The Teammate Giving Campaign is an annual fundraising campaign that takes place for 6 weeks, beginning in February.  This is the only annual campaign that directly supports CHS NorthEast. 

How much is raised through the Teammate Giving Campaign?
The 2016 Teammate Giving Campaign raised over $245,000 for CHS NorthEast.  The goal in 2017 is to raise $252,000.  We know that with your support, we can reach our 2017 goal!
