Our Work, Your Inspiration and Meeting the Needs of Others

When we talk about giving to Wake Forest Baptist, we should be clear: It’s really not about us.

Celebrating More Than an Announcement

Wake Forest Baptist made a public announcement in early October: We are raising $350 million for the people and programs of the Medical Center.
