Facilitating Improved
Health and Wellness

Our Mission

At Gateway Wellness Foundation, our mission is centered in the health and wellbeing of our Western North Carolina community. Through intentional partnerships and collaborations, Gateway Wellness improves and supports quality of life in WNC by promoting wellness opportunities among organizations for people we serve regionally.

The Gateway Wellness Foundation creates change through philanthropy partners in support of community wellness.

Gateway’s focus centers in health cultivation of the WNC community. Our mission is to address the social determinants of health throughout WNC, specifically in Burke, McDowell, Polk, and Rutherford counties, and look to offer tangible resolutions.

In our inaugural year, The Gateway Wellness Foundation will focus on Poverty, Access to Healthcare/Primary care, Housing, Education and Food insecurity.

The Gateway Wellness Foundation will partner with local nonprofit organizations to improve the health of residents in WNC. Local organizations that are committed to addressing the social determinants of health in this region are invited to participate in our listening sessions. The Board of Directors are asking local nonprofits who are experts on the needs of our community to present how they meet our community’s health needs. If you are part of a nonprofit or know of a nonprofit that would like to participate in these listening sessions please promptly email info@gatewaywellnessfoundation.org for more details.

Information about submitting grant proposals to the Foundation will be provided at a later date. These grant requests will be reviewed by the Foundation Board of Directors and decisions will come directly from the Board. For more information and updates please continue to check our website.
