Our Mission

The Pisgah Health Foundation has been established in western North Carolina to target and improve the health and wellness of its citizens, advancing the century-old efforts of Mission Health System by investing in programs designed to improve the quality of life for all residents.

Who We Are

The Pisgah Health Foundation was founded on December 6, 2018, by a board of eleven caring individuals focused on improving the health, wellness and lives of western North Carolina residents.

Our organization evolved out of the Transylvania Hospital Foundation as a living legacy of service in support of the award-winning hospital in Brevard, NC. During its prior service, the group raised $40,000,000 to enhance a variety of clinical areas.

Now, in collaboration with Mission Health System, Dogwood Health Trust and other nonprofits in the region, Pisgah Health Foundation aims to improve targeted social determinants of health throughout the region.
