To Our Community Partners,
In keeping with our mission to improve the health and well-being of Highlands, Cashiers, and surrounding communities, our current top funding priority is supporting the establishment, and successful operation of the Blue Ridge Health Center – Highlands Cashiers, the plateau’s new comprehensive primary care center located in the Jane Woodruff Clinic on the campus of the Highlands-Cashiers Hospital and independently operated by Blue Ridge Health, a well-established Western North Carolina non-profit healthcare organization.
While this vital initiative to expand access to primary care on the plateau will continue to be our chief focus, we continue to remain open to considering grant proposals for additional programs that further the Foundation’s mission. Let’s stay in touch!

HCHF Funding Priority
Based on community need, the Foundation Board has identified Health and Access to Healthcare as the focus for grant funding.
Organizations interested in submitting grant applications that address The Foundation’s funding priority should begin the process by submitting an Initial Inquiry. This step asks you to share your organization’s project(s), ideas and plans and gives us the ability to learn more about what you are doing in our communities.
If you feel that your project fits within our Health and Access to Healthcare focus area, please complete Step 1.
Initial Inquiries that meet the Foundation’s funding priority may then be asked to submit a Letter of Interest and may then be invited to complete a Full Grant Application.
***It is important to note that movement from one step to the next does not guarantee funding nor does completion of one step imply movement to the next step.***
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions on how to upload your organization’s application.
