Michael Jordan is opening two health care clinics in Wilmington, North Carolina, the town in which he grew up. The fact that it costs $10 million to do so doesn’t bother him, because he’s helping people in need. Partnered with Novant Health, a non-profit health care group, the organization says Jordan’s donation will bring, “Comprehensive primary care, including behavioral health and social support services, to the area’s most vulnerable communities.”
This isn’t the first time Jordan has given back to his home town. In 2017, Jordan donated $7 million and opened up two health care centers. There is proof that these centers have helped people, as since 2017, more than 4,000 patients have visited.
This also isn’t the first time Jordan has splurged to help out those in need. Jordan has also donated $3 million to hurricane relief and $5 million to the National Museum of African American History and Culture. The former Bull has also donated millions to Make-A-Wish foundations and charities in Chicago, as well as pledging $100 million over ten years to different organizations. I think it’s fair to say that Jordan is the GOAT on the basketball court and a GOAT off of it as well.

One thought on “Michael Jordan is Donating $10 Million to Open Medical Clinics in North Carolina”
Good for him. It is really nice to read about a super-star athlete helping others and giving back to the community. He clearly is putting his money where is mouth is. Sick of hearing these players with their multi-million dollar contracts complaining about everything from politics to social issues and not doing anything to help. I appreciate your Blog and would love to hear about other players who are giving back.
