Share Your Stories

Nantahala Health Foundation could not hope to address all the social determinants of health that impact all our lives without the expertise and work of our past, present, and future grantees.

We believe the good work you and your team are accomplishing on behalf of those in need is worth expanding and sharing far and wide.

Please take a minute to tell us your stories and story ideas, so that we can help get the word out.


Our Budgeting Resources

Budgeting is a key piece of any program. For NHF, it is important that we invest our limited resources in programs designed to have positive, upstream impacts on the social drivers of health identified in our funding priority areas.

For our partners, project budgeting supports your grant-funded work, from calculating your request to reporting measurable milestones to concluding your project.

Within our grant applications, we supply applicants a budget template, within which your project needs, expenses and outcomes should be fully transparent. We require that each applicant use this template at each phase of the grant process, unless other arrangements have been agreed upon.

Communication Resources

Congratulations! Your innovative idea to help others proved worthy of support through a grant from Nantahala Health Foundation, along with other sources, in most cases. What’s next?

Before you launch your program, we ask you share the news of your grant success within 30 days of receipt of funds.

Let’s get this partnership off to a great start by working together to share the good news.

Have other collaborative Ideas?

We continually update this section with new resources, templates, and other materials you can use to communicate about your grant from Nantahala Health Foundation.

If you require materials that are not yet available here, please contact NHF Associate Director Lisa Duff by phone at 828.643.1527 or HERE.

Grant Research & Writing

Searching and applying for grants to support your work is time-consuming. Understanding that most WNC nonprofits and governmental agencies operate with minimal staff, we are available to help locate grant-makers waiting to learn more about your programs. After we identify a potential match, our team will work with you to draft a proposal sure to increase your chances of receiving an award.
