A Catalyst for Change in Western North Carolina

At WNC Bridge Foundation, we believe that being a catalyst for change should be obvious by the actions we take and the organizations we support. We want our community to see the difference we are making on behalf of our donors. Our initial focus is on raising funds to support critical work being done in our communities in the areas of elder care, emergency wellness and youth development. We also provide some direct support to individuals and award grants that empower local non-profits to make a positive change in the individual and community health of the 18 counties of WNC that we serve.

The following provides a basic list of how donor funds are impacting lives in our communities:

  • MountainCare
    • Adult Care Centers, Overnight Respite & Mountain Explorers
    • Grief Support for adults and youth
    • Music Therapy for older adults and others needing solace
    • The Rathbun House providing a place for families to stay when loved ones are in the hospital
  • WNC’s Greatest Needs Fund – Providing resources for individual and community wellness
  • You’re Special Fund – Providing much needed home health equipment to low-income recipients, allowing individuals to remain safely in their home
  • Health Scholarships – Providing scholarships to deserving students to pursue careers in healthcare in Western North Carolina
