As a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation and sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Mercy South Central Community, Holy Angels is dependent upon financial and volunteer support in order to provide the highest quality care to our residents regardless of their diagnosis, challenges or financial status.
The Holy Angels Foundation serves as the fundraising arm of Holy Angels and must raise 20% of the annual total operating costs for programs and services that are not funded through government and other funding sources. Donations to the Holy Angels Foundation are tax deductible and support vital programs and services.
The Foundation raises funds through a wide variety of activities and events supported by individuals, businesses, organizations, churches and schools. These include:
In addition to donations from generous hearts who remember us during the Christmas season, our Annual Christmas Appeal features a unique Christmas card created by one of our residents. Individuals, businesses and organizations use this card to send honor or memorial donations on behalf of friends, family or business associates. Please contact us if you would like to participate in this effort.
Each March, Holy Angels hosts our Angel Bowl bowl-athon in nearby Gastonia. This fun and popular event draws corporate sponsors and over 800 participants who bowl one game and enlist fundraising support from their own network of family, friends, organizations and business contacts. Top fundraisers receive prizes – and Holy Angels receives much-needed financial support.
Carolina Classic Golf Tournament
In September, Holy Angels hosts the Annual Carolina Classic Golf Tournament. It’s an exciting round of golf in a beautiful setting – all for a great cause. This golf classic offers prizes and an awards reception. Various levels of corporate sponsorship are available to benefit Holy Angels.
Grazie Mille Italian Weekend
Each year, Holy Angels welcomes the Italian Mammas from Chianti, Tuscany, Italy. Mimma and Franca share their fun and entertaining stories and recipes for Italian food with a joyous heart. Enjoy a fun-filled weekend of delicious authentic Italian food, wine and entertainment.
Purchase the Around Fortunata’s Table Cookbook featuring delicious authentic Italian recipes and stories. All proceeds benefit Holy Angels.
Hands Around Our School
A unique and worthwhile program offering rewards for Holy Angels and local school children, Hands Around Our School is both a fundraising event as well as learning opportunity. Holy Angels provides empathy training to students of participating schools which includes simulated disabilities and challenges. In turn, students sell paper hands to donors for one dollar each which are then placed around the school. In addition to raising funds to benefit Holy Angels, the program creates awareness of philanthropy and understanding of others’ needs.
Power Of The Past Tractor Club Angel Raffle
Members of the Power of the Past Tractor Club include farmers, landscapers, corporate managers, engineers and retired truck drivers who live and work in the Charlotte/Mecklenburg County region. Each year, members work together to gather parts to restore an antique tractor, then raffle off the vintage equipment. To date, the group has raised more than $200,000 for the benefit of the Holy Angels Creative Arts program.
