Supporting a robust regional economy.
Building a strong nonprofit network throughout WNC.
Eliminating barriers to healthcare.
Enhancing access to quality education.
Our grant programs have awarded more than $3.46 million to some 175 programs, all of which have contributed a total regional investment of more than $11.4 million and, more importantly, the improvement of thousands of lives. Additionally, we have connected local nonprofits with financial resources from outside this region, resulting in millions more coming here to support better health and well-being for all.
We launched in 2019 with a $15 million investment under the direction of a volunteer board of directors and a mission to improve health outcomes in our service area.
While $15M may sound enormous to some, it pales in comparison to the level of financial support required to create a meaningful Heathy Future Movement for all those living, learning, working, and trying their best to thrive in our region.
Time and again, our partners emphasizes this poignant sentiment:
We are proud of our work to support these vital service-providing organizations. If we are to continue serving as one of Western North Carolina’s most influential, flexible, and successful health-related philanthropies, public support is required. Please consider making a contribution to better health for all.
THANK YOU to those who have contributed to this important work. Because of you, Western North Carolina’s most underserved men, women, and children have a better chance at achieving long-term improvements to their health and well-being.
