At Impact Alamance we’re all about bringing the community together for healthy change. To make this happen, we invest more than $2 million dollars into our community annually. It’s our goal to create a healthier and smarter community that will lead to a stronger future for all of us.
Impact Alamance started as a result of Alamance Regional Medical Center’s merger with Cone Health. The original $54 million dollar investment is Cone Health’s commitment to further improve the health of Alamance County.
Impact Alamance invests 4.5 percent of total assets into the community annually. That is approximately $2 million dollars each year. Funding is limited to Alamance County.

If you’re focused on health, why is education part of your funding priorities?
Researchers across the country have done numerous studies exploring the link between education and health. The research indicates that education is the single most important factor affecting the health of individuals and their community. By strengthening our education system, we can strengthen the health of our community.
What is your relationship to the United Way?
