We celebrate the generosity and compassion of our Society of 1961 members at the WakeMed Foundation Donor Appreciation Gala, which brings together our most generous donors and sponsors for a night of giving thanks and celebrating the year's successes. Nearly 1,000 people are expected at the event in 2017.

Named in honor of WakeMed’s founding year, members of the Society of 1961 have contributed more than $29 million to support a wide variety of capital and special projects throughout the WakeMed system. Donors who contribute $1,500 or more to the WakeMed Foundation are designated each year as members of the Society of 1961 

Together, the collective gifts from Society of 1961 donors are truly changing and saving lives.
