A major gift is not “major” because the gift is a certain amount of money. Instead, a gift is considered major when it will make a significant impact on how N.C. Children’s Hospital cares for children. In most situations, a major gift donor works with a development officer to ensure the gift is used per the donor’s wishes—whether for a specific purpose (e.g., supporting a program or naming a room) or through a commitment to a specific campaign (e.g., our Lookout Terrace building campaign).
Major gifts can be current gifts, in which money is donated immediately, or deferred gifts, in which money is donated through a bequest, charitable remainder trust, or other planned giving mechanism.

Name Our Spaces
N.C. Children's Hospital encourages support from donors in order to underwrite building or physical facilities or for major programmatic efforts.
Opportunities for naming buildings or space are available to donors who make gifts of money, stock, or property, the value of which is proportional to the size of the space to be named. Funds received in return for naming facilities will be used to enrich the overall scope and quality of patient and family care at North Carolina Children's Hospital.
Examples of Named Spaces include:
- The Addie Armfield Center for Education
- The Broyhill Children’s Chapel
- The Charles Goren Music Room
- The Lee Hazen Parent Resource Center
- The Jason Clark Teen Activity Center
- The Leigh Haley Jones, MD, Parent Lounge
