Thank You to Our Recent Dilworth Center Grant Funders
Partnering During a Pandemic

“These partnerships are a marriage of each organization’s missions, strengths, relationships and expertise. We are honored to have their support during such a critical time.” -Charles Odell, President & CEO, Dilworth Center

Philip Van Every Foundation

Dilworth Center was recently awarded a grant from The Philip L. Van Every Foundation to support our Outpatient Treatment Program. Our treatment program is an effective and affordable method of care for treating substance use disorders while allowing people to maintain their work and home routines. We are very grateful to partner once again with The Philip L. Van Every Foundation to help those suffering from addiction in our community.

About The Philip L Van Every Foundation:

Founded in 1961, the Philip L. Van Every Foundation enriches the lives of North and South Carolinians through its generous support of worthy non-profit organizations working to strengthen their communities in one or more of the following focus areas: Human and Community Service; Education; Healthcare and Rehabilitation; Arts, Culture & History. As the former president/chief executive officer of Lance, Inc., and Mayor of Charlotte, Mr. Van Every understood the importance of an education, quality healthcare, rehabilitation, community service and the cultural arts. His passion for these causes and desire to provide financial support to organizations addressing these issues inspired him to create the foundation which bears his name. A native of Charlotte, North Carolina and dual resident of coastal South Carolina, Mr. Van Every cared deeply about the communities in which he lived and worked. To date, countless Carolinians have benefited from the more than $50 million investment made by the Philip L. Van Every Foundation in North and South Carolina communities.

The Leon Levine Foundation

Dilworth Center was recently awarded a grant from The Leon Levine Foundation to support our Family Treatment Program. Addiction seriously affects family members and loved ones. Our family program is structured in conjunction with the patient treatment program, allowing family members and patients to work together to heal relationships that have been strained by addiction. The Levine’s generosity has transformed Charlotte. We are grateful for The Leon Levine Foundation’s support of our mission.

About The Leon Levine Foundation:

Established in 1980 by Leon Levine (Founder and Chairman Emeritus of Family Dollar Stores, Inc.), The Leon Levine Foundation supports programs and organizations that improve the human condition through investments in education, healthcare, human services and Jewish values. Based in Charlotte, N.C., the Foundation invests in nonprofits across North Carolina and South Carolina with strong leadership, a track record of success, and a plan for financial sustainability. Through its investments, the Foundation intends to create pathways to self-sufficiency, champion strategies for permanent change, and facilitate opportunities for growth.

The Gambrell Foundation

Dilworth Center was recently awarded a multi-year grant from The Gambrell Foundation to support operations. This grant will provide an ongoing, stable source of income during this time of instability caused by the pandemic. The pandemic continues to be an uncertain, ever-evolving reality placing enormous strains on Dilworth Center & challenges our ability to provide effective services as we continue to adapt to delivering counseling and facilitating peer groups between in-person, virtual and hybrid formats. Overall, this will enable us to provide the highest level of addiction treatment services for those struggling with substance use disorders in our community. We are grateful for The Gambrell Foundation’s support of our mission.

About the Gambrell Foundation:

The Gambrell Foundation has a passion for fighting against inequity. We are helping to break down the barriers and build bridges to access needed resources that allow individuals to become self-sufficient and help communities thrive. The American dream should be possible for all. These barriers exist in multiple critical areas, each of which represent an area of strategic priority.
