Lenoir Hospital Foundation

About Us

Our Mission

The Lenoir Hospital Foundation was established over thirty years ago to receive and steward private donations for the purpose of enhancing patient care through support to the Hospital. It does so through grants in support of:

  • Upgrades in medical technology
  • Equipment purchases
  • Support for community health initiatives
  • Fund capital improvements

To recognize and show appreciation for the philanthropy of major contributors, a donor recognition wall is displayed just inside the hospital entrance.

The mission of the Foundation is to ensure exceptional healthcare for the people we serve.

Lenoir Memorial Hospital Foundation, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization that supports the mission of UNC Lenoir Health Care, to ensure exceptional healthcare for the people we serve.


What is the Lenoir Hospital Foundation?

The Lenoir Hospital Foundation is a separate, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable corporation established for the support of UNC Lenoir Health Care and the facilities, programs, and services it offers to serve citizens of Lenoir, Greene, and Jones Counties.

The Foundation’s purpose is to support the mission of UNC Lenoir Health Care through advocacy, education, relationships, philanthropy and stewardship.

The Foundation is dedicated to attaining charitable contributions, managing these funds and disbursing these funds for the benefit of UNC Lenoir Health Care and the people it serves.

How is the Foundation governed?

The board of directors is comprised of the Hospital’s President & CEO, the UNC Lenoir Health Care Board treasurer, a representative from the UNC Lenoir Health Care staff and UNC Lenoir Health Care Volunteers, and other community leaders. These individuals provide oversight for the Foundation’s policies and procedures and monitor its finances and grants.

Why should you contribute to the Lenoir Hospital Foundation?

Your philanthropy provides the needed resources to help maintain the best possible patient-centered care available in our clinical programs and services. Your individual acts of generosity help improve the quality of life for people in our community, not only today but into the future.

What does the Foundation support?

Grants made inside the Hospital must first pass the test of whether the requested funds will be used to directly improve patient care. The request may be for any department or unit in the Hospital or may be applied hospital-wide. Funding, outside of the hospital, must align with hospital-directed initiatives based on priorities established for community health improvement objectives.

Is the Foundation tax exempt?

Yes, all donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law

What is the Foundation’s tax identification number (TIN)?

The tax identification number for Lenoir Memorial Hospital Foundation, Inc. is 58-1584139.

Ways to Give

Your support makes a difference!

There are many ways to support the Lenoir Hospital Foundation. Individuals may choose options that correspond to their personal interests and provide them with charitable tax advantages.

Making a gift today to the Lenoir Hospital Foundation provides immediate benefits. The gift has the potential to make a difference in our community immediately, and the donor receives a charitable tax deduction. A deferred or planned gift, such as a bequest or gift from a trust, often allows the donor to make the largest gift of their lifetime. Therefore, the significance of its impact may be greater and can establish a legacy that is long-lived.

You may make your gift online, on a secure site, by clicking Support a Cause.

Donations at any level are welcomed and appreciated. All gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Donation and Gift Options


We are thrilled to announce our partnership with DonateStock, a cause-based company seeking to transform charitable giving by making stock donations fast, easy, and secure.

Donating stock used to be an intimidating process — for both donors and organizations. But now, in a matter of minutes, you can save on taxes by donating stock directly to our cause. Donating appreciated stock is fast, safe, and free; and it enables donors to avoid capital gains tax while earning a bigger tax deduction.

Stock represents a largely untapped source of funding and DonateStock provides the notifications, reporting, and tools we need to make the most of this opportunity.
