The Duke Endowment Awards $2.5 Million in COVID-19 Relief for the Carolinas

The Duke Endowment approved $2.5 million to support Carolinians impacted by the coronavirus crisis. In North Carolina, $1.25 million of the funding will be dispersed through the North Carolina Healthcare Foundation, the charitable nonprofit affiliate of the North Carolina Healthcare Association. These initial grants will help statewide efforts focused on access to vital health care and sustaining social supports as unemployment rises.


The North Carolina Healthcare Foundation is establishing a COVID-19 Fill the Gap Fund to respond to needs that cannot be addressed via public resources or reimbursement. Representatives from the health sector and social service organizations, including community safety net leaders and state agency partners, will serve as an advisory team.
