Funding Needs and Priorities

Nantahala Health Foundation works with local organizations and explores cutting-edge programming to both build capacity and address five areas that measure community health:

  • Education
  • Economic Stability
  • Healthcare
  • Neighborhood and Built Environments
  • Social and Community Context 

Our Board of Directors addressed two priorities in our inaugural year. First, we sought to understand and identify the challenges that create disparities within our communities. Second, we worked to create a stronger network of existing nonprofits and organizations by investing in their strategies and supporting initiatives that address the root causes of health inequalities.

Nantahala Health Foundation looks forward to continuing to partner with community change agents in innovative organizations toward a shared goal of providing improved health opportunities for all.
