ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
A Partnership for Health
WNC Bridge Foundation exists to connect our communities to a healthier future and to create lasting change through local partnerships. Our goal is to be a catalyst for change in Western North Carolina by eliminating barriers that prevent individuals from reaching their full potential.
We are a community-based charity providing direct support to individuals and grants to carefully selected non-profits throughout the region who are working every day to eliminate the barriers in our communities that prevent our neighbors from reaching their full potential.
WNC Bridge Foundation’s purpose is to provide funds to assist in meeting the health challenges of people in the communities of Western North Carolina and to empower non-profits to impact individual and community wellness in those communities.
100% of all funds raised during this year’s event will directly benefit three Western North Carolina Non-profits: St. Gerard House, Irene Wortham Center, and MountainCare. These funds will allow developmentally challenged children and adults to thrive, they will expand the capacity to serve families who have children with autism, and they will provide caregivers respite while their family members attend Adult Day services
