All proceeds from the Annual Gala benefit CHS NorthEast.
A Little History of the NorthEast FoundationNorthEast Foundation was created in 1994 to support one of our community's most valued assets, Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast. Community leaders were invited to establish a Foundation Board of Directors whose mission was to secure additional financial support solely for Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast. Through an organized program of fund development with families, friends, businesses and neighbors, this mission continues today. Gifts to NorthEast Foundation are considered gifts of love and support from the community, gifts that acknowledge the importance of preserving and enhancing the health status of our community.
They also hope to be the region’s most trusted non-profit entity so that we may invest donor’s interests in a way that best serves and promotes CHS NorthEast. Their next campaign for 2017 -2019 is called “We Give First….” NorthEast Foundation, Supporting Our Hospital. The goal for this campaign is to raise 10 million dollars by the end of 2019. Essentially, 1 million for their 10 areas of support.
The 10 Areas of Support
- Cabarrus College of Health Sciences
- Cancer Services
- Cardiac Services
- Emergency Services
- Greatest Need
- Jeff Gordon Children's Hospital
- Surgical Services
- Women's Services
President of the NorthEast Foundation, Charlie Sastoque, spoke about his favorite aspect of the foundation, "Connecting donors to supporting the area or areas of the hospital they are most passionate about."
