Every gift, regardless of size, arrives with a story behind it. These stories are as varied as the people involved – grateful patients wanting to show their appreciation, people looking toward a future with new treatments, children trying to make hospital stays a little brighter for other children who are sick, … the list goes on and on. Each donor makes a difference to the people Wake Forest Baptist Health serves.

Your support helps us provide world-class, compassionate care to our patients, explore intriguing ideas for new treatments and educate the next generation of health care leaders, and we appreciate you. Come hear our stories and learn about what’s next for Wake Forest Baptist.
