85 Local Non-Profits Receive Over $3.9 Million in Grant Funding

In its second year of regional grant funding, WNC Bridge Foundation nearly doubled the number of organizations receiving Impact Grant funding compared to 2019. Mental health counseling for uninsured and under-insured people, mentorship and literacy support for youth, and delivery of meals to homebound seniors are examples of how grants will be put into action.

2019 Impact Grant Recipient Spotlight: Blue Ridge Health

A $90,720 Impact Grant from WNC Bridge Foundation allowed BRH to open its first medical site in a retirement community, BRH-Givens Gerber Park in Asheville. Givens Gerber Park provides affordable rental apartments for ages 55 and up and pairs housing with supportive services to help residents age in place.

Virtual Drums & Dragons Month-Long Calendar of Events

This year, due to the ongoing pandemic we’ve had to temporarily hang-up our paddles and move to a virtual format. Our goal is to keep our Drums & Dragons virtual event health-driven and engaging while upholding the camaraderie-based, team-building nature of the event in our fundraising efforts.
