Our Mission

Pisgah Health Foundation’s mission is to purposefully, creatively, and collaboratively enhance the health and well-being of our communities by addressing local health and wellness inequities through strategic and meaningful partnerships.

Who We Are

The Pisgah Health Foundation
is a public 501 (c)(3) charity founded in 2019, by a board of eleven caring individuals focused on improving the health, wellness and lives of western North Carolina residents.

The organization evolved out of the Transylvania Regional 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 Dogwood Health Trust, community leaders and other nonprofits in the region, Pisgah Health Foundation’s drive is to improve health and wellness by addressing healthy opportunities in targeted social determinants of health areas including Health, Food Insecurity, Housing, Social Cohesion and Education.
