The Foundation

The mission of the CarolinaEast Foundation is to: Promote health in our region, Support the healthcare community and Assist individuals with healthcare needs.  The Foundation was established in 1996 as a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit foundation. The Foundation extends the gift of wellness to individuals, families and other nonprofit healthcare organizations in Craven, Jones, Pamlico, Onslow, and Carteret counties by offering financial assistance to help those challenged with unmet health care needs. Since 1998, the Foundation has awarded over 3.5 million dollars in grants, assistance and support to local communities throughout the local area. The Foundation is run by an independent governing Board of Directors, separate from CarolinaEast Health System's, that makes decisions on providing support for unmet health care concerns where ever the needs are greatest. Today’s health care needs are constantly changing and the demands on individuals, families and nonprofit healthcare organizations trying to meet these needs can sometimes be overwhelming. The Foundation strives to help meet these needs through funding support and grants for a variety of health care concerns and programs.
