Ways to Give


Building a Healthy Community Starts with You!

With over 120,000 individuals without health insurance and more than 1,000 low-income, pregnant mothers seeking support in our community, the need for accessible, quality care is great. Each day, Care Ring serves people with limited resources who would otherwise have no other place to turn for care.

Because of generous donors, we are able serve over 7,000 individuals a year.

Will you join us in building a healthy community by making a gift today?


A Gift with Endless Possibilities

Your gift has endless possibilities to improve the health of a neighbor in need. It gives a father access to care and medications to control his diabetes. It provides a child with a back-to-school physical, giving them a healthy start to the school year. It connects a mother to life-saving cancer treatments. It decreases infant mortality and improves birth weight in expectant mothers. These are just a few of the ways your gift makes a difference.

When you give to our Access to Care Fund, you make it possible for us to allocate resources to where they are needed most.

If you prefer to designate your gift, or have any questions about making a donation, please call (704)-248-3711 to speak with Jennifer Frey, Director of Individual Giving.
