Over the last several weeks, leaders from across our system have been working tirelessly to ensure we are prepared to provide excellent care for COVID-19 patients while keeping other patients, colleagues and guests safe. For those who feel called to support UNC Health during this time of crisis, we have created a new COVID-19 Response Fund to provide for emerging needs in the immediate term. This fund will provide support to those who need it most urgently – our patients and their families, our health care team, our researchers and our students.

Gifts to the COVID-19 Response Fund will provide critical funding for UNC Health’s immediate needs to fight the pandemic. These include:

  • Protective equipment for health care providers on the front lines of the COVID-19 outbreak
  • Lab equipment and materials for researchers working around the clock to develop new tests and treatments
  • Aid for already-vulnerable patients, families and caregivers suffering from additional loss of income
  • Financial support for medical students affected by reduced campus operations
