Beyond our daily economic, legal and ethical responsibilities, WWAY is dedicated to its philanthropic support in the Cape Fear Region. WWAY is committed to its corporate community citizenship through smart corporate philanthropy partnerships that are beneficial to our society, our stakeholders and the corporation. This means WWAY is here to help tackle some of the problems that our communities are struggling with.

By leveraging our journalism expertise in our newsroom, and superior communication and marketing resources, WWAY is able to partner with our community and local nonprofit organizations throughout the Cape Fear Region to inspire, engage, activate, and communicate important issues and topics that educate and bring awareness, and raise necessary funds to support resources and programming that offer quality of life, health and well-being to the people in our communities.

We are honored to partner and leverage our resources to deliver critical messages and stories of our community to almost 200,000 households (SMA TV Household, Rentrack 2015) that watch our news programs every day, and millions who visit our online news and information platforms daily.
