What we can do together

At WNC Bridge Foundation, we have been proudly serving the people of Western North Carolina for over 17 years. We are a community-based charitable organization that works to provide funds to support and assist in meeting the many health challenges that face the people of WNC. We provide direct support and also empower carefully selected non-profits to impact individual and community wellness in our communities throughout the WNC region.

WNC Bridge Foundation recognizes that creating an environment which values and promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) for each person in the WNC region requires action and engagement in every aspect of our organization. WNC Bridge Foundation actively supports and strives to enhance the advancement of DEI through our fundraising, grantmaking, retail operations, and administrative policies.

We will continue to listen, learn, and welcome feedback.
