Plan a Gift or Bequest

There are many ways to donate to Atrium Health Foundation, which supports the programs and services of Atrium Health.

The most common ways to give are through checks and online donations.

However, some individuals may wish to donate in other ways, and Atrium Health Foundation is ready to assist them in achieving their tax, estate planning and charitable-giving objectives. Many of these giving strategies are complicated and should be employed in consultation with legal experts, tax planners or financial advisers. Please refer to the list below for more planned giving options or contact us using the form to the right.


Making a gift of retirement plan assets to Atrium Health Foundation may reduce your tax liability, and that of other beneficiaries who will receive assets upon your death. For more information about designating retirement plan assets, please consider consulting a member of the Atrium Health Foundation Legacy Giving Advisory Council.

For more information about making a legacy gift or to inform us of your estate plans, contact Jim Ervin at 704-355-1955 or We invite you to consult a member of Atrium Health Foundation’s Legacy Giving Advisory Council for estate planning assistance.
