Capizzi M.D. Foundation
Dr. Peter J. Capizzi, double-board certified plastic surgeon, and the team at his Capizzi M.D. practice created the Capizzi M.D. Foundation in 2017. Dedicated to supporting organizations that assist people overcoming challenges or trauma, the Capizzi M.D. Foundation formalizes the ongoing charitable work of Dr. Capizzi and his medical and office staff.
“My practice has always focused on helping my patients reach their personal goals,” said Dr. Peter Capizzi. “I created the Capizzi M.D. Foundation to extend that mission to organizations that help people live their best lives, even in the face of adversity.”
The Capizzi M.D. Foundation’s first beneficiary is Safe Alliance, which supports victims of domestic and sexual violence. They help people build safe, healthy relationships through a continuum of shelter, legal and advocacy services. The Foundation will be donating aesthetic services to Safe Alliance clients, helping them feel and look better as they embark on a fresh start.
“We are familiar with Dr. Capizzi’s great work in the Charlotte community, and are delighted to be chosen to be the first organization to benefit from the Capizzi M.D. Foundation,” said Mike Blackwelder, Chief Advancement Officer, Safe Alliance. “Our organization’s goal is to help our clients successfully move forward with their lives following trauma. I am sure that receiving services from the expert Capizzi M.D. team will provide a dose of self-confidence to our clients as they move forward in their lives.”
Safe Alliance, a United Way of the Central Carolinas member agency, supports victims of domestic and sexual violence, as well as child abuse, and helps people build safe, healthy relationships. They do this through a continuum of shelter, counseling, legal and advocacy services serving over 12,000 people a year in Mecklenburg County and Lake Norman. Thousands more are reached through its educational and prevention programs as well as institutional advocacy efforts. For more information, visit www.safealliance.org.
