Response to COVID-19

AMY Wellness Foundation is taking precautions following the recommendations of NC Department of Health and Human Services. We have decided that it is in the best interest of our community to virtualize, postpone, or cancel all events through April 8th.

Increase Your Impact

As we grow to better serve our greater community, resource development partnerships are key to our success. There are many ways to give back through AMY Wellness Foundation:


Matching Gift

A matching gift is a great way to give to a health area of interest by which AMY will “match” a percent of the dollar amount of the donation provided by gifting of its own funds to the same cause.

Case Based Match​

Case based matching gifts are specified for a certain area AMYWF is seeking support for. For example, if you give a gift to a specific health area (e.g. transportation), AMYWF will then also give a percent to the same health area during the upcoming grant cycle.

Specific Case Based Match

You may designate your gift more specifically to a funding area of interest. You may be even more specific than a general health area. For example, make a matching gift to fight childhood hunger in a specific county or a specific town, or make a matching gift for transportation in a specific county or a specific town.
