Michael Jordan is putting his money where his mouth is – making a substantial donation to open not one, but two new health clinics in North Carolina. The NBA legend is donating ten-million-dollars to open the clinics in partnership with Novant Health.

The clinics are set to open early next year and will provide services to those who are uninsured or underinsured in his hometown of Wilmington. But did you know this isn’t the first time he’s done such a thing? Fact.

Back in 2017, he donated $7 million for a similar facility in Charlotte – which opened in 2019. “I am very proud to once again partner with Novant Health to expand the Family Clinic model to bring better access to critical medical services in my hometown,” Jordan says in a statement. “Everyone should have access to quality health care, no matter where they live, or whether or not they have insurance.” He goes on to note that “it’s truly gratifying to be able to give back to the community that supported me throughout my life.”
