The UNC Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention brings public health research findings to the daily lives of individuals and their communities with a special focus on North Carolina and populations vulnerable to disease.  Throughout our 30-year history, we have been committed to partnering with numerous communities and agencies across the state to identify effective solutions to the most critical health problems.  We also work across the state and nationwide to offer programs and services that promote better health and prevent disease. We appreciate any and all donations to assist us in this work. Below are just a few examples of ways we can use your gifts and donations:

  • Recognize our 30th Anniversary as a Prevention Research Center with special programs and initiatives;
  • Support No Kid Hungry NC, a statewide initiative of HPDP, that connects more than 800,000 high-need children in North Carolina to under-utilized federal nutrition programs— nutrition that is essential for academic success and helps ensure brighter futures;
  • Assist with travel, training, and education for our community partners;
  • Help HPDP student researchers and fellows improve their research knowledge and skills;
  • Sponsor events to connect researchers with community partners;
  • Provide support for research team meetings and meetings with project participants;
  • Provide healthy, local, and sustainable food for meetings with community partners;
  • Fund special research initiatives.

We also invite you to contact us at or 919-966-4118 to share and discuss your specific interests in projects and activities you would like us to support with your donations.
