RHI Legacy Foundation’s major purpose is to provide grant funding to support existing organizations that are aligned with three health focus areas.

  • Chronic Disease
  • Healthy Eating
  • Active Living

The Foundation also provides funding to develop new services or projects that improve the overall health and wellness of people living and working in Rutherford County.

Other individuals and businesses often want to contribute to our work. When that occurs, we accept and recognize the gifts, provide tax receipts, and make the funds available for their designated purposes. Some of the projects funded by outside contributions include:

  • Services and assistance for local cancer patients
  • The Backpack program to provide weekend food for school children
  • Lifeline services for disadvantaged seniors who live alone
  • Sponsorships for health-related events that fit our focus areas

Please contact us to learn more about our grants processes, new projects and services or to contribute to a specific health purpose.
