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.

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

Gateway works to improve the health and wellness 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.

The Foundation’s strategic focus areas include Housing, Early Childhood Development, Food Insecurity, and Access to Healthcare.

We partner with local governments and nonprofit organizations to improve the lives of the residents we serve. Local organizations that are committed to addressing the social determinants of health in this region are always invited to reach out to the Foundation. The Board of Directors look to local nonprofits as the experts of the needs of our community.   

Gateway’s annual grant cycle opens August 1, 2021.  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.
