Give – To Our Community

WNC Bridge Foundation raises funds to support programs that connect individuals in our community with essential resources. Unlike our grants, which are funded through endowment investments, our 5 Community Initiatives (Rathbun House, You’re Special Fund, WNC Greatest Needs Fund, Health Scholarships, Children Services Fund) rely on the generous support of individuals who donate money and support our fundraising efforts.

Every cent donated to WNC Bridge Foundation goes directly to support our community initiatives.
