Biz Briefs: Panthers owner’s foundation donates $1 million to Atrium Health, Novant Health

CHARLOTTE — The David A. Tepper Charitable Foundation has made a $1 million donation to support local efforts to mitigate the coronavirus outbreak, with Atrium Health Foundation receiving $650,000 and Novant Health Foundation receiving $350,000.

The funds will be distributed by each system’s foundation.

The $650,000 gift will be directed to the newly established Atrium Health Essential Needs Fund. Atrium Health has benefited from Tepper’s and the Panthers’ generosity in the past, including significant donations to support the nationally recognized Levine Children’s Hospital, named a Best Children’s Hospital in multiple specialties by U.S. News & World Report, according to a press release.

As individuals are looking for ways to support Atrium Health during these uncertain times, the Atrium Health Essential Needs Fund has been established to support Atrium Health’s response to the current COVID-19 pandemic and future essential needs, as identified by the Foundation and Atrium Health.

“During these unprecedented times, it’s uplifting to have generous donors like David Tepper step forward to ensure that
our community has the very best healthcare services possible,” said Armando Chardiet, president of Atrium Health
Foundation, in a press release. “We’re all in this together and we’re extremely thankful for those in our community coming together during times like this.”

The $350,000 gift to Novant Health will be distributed by the Novant Health foundations in Charlotte, Winston-Salem,
Thomasville, Rowan County and Brunswick in a manner that is still being determined.

“I’m grateful that the David A. Tepper Charitable Foundation is providing funding to support the ongoing delivery of healthcare during this pandemic,” said Ann Caulkins, senior vice president of Novant Health Foundations, in a press release. “This truly is a
time of everyone working together for our communities.”
