Haywood Healthcare Foundation (HHF) offers grants to Haywood County non-profits, government agencies and schools. These grants are possible because of dedicated donors with a long history of contributing to HHF.
Committed to improving access to health care, these donations from local residents in turn help others in the community with healthcare needs.
Each person, family or agency assisted with funding has a story to tell about the impact of the help on their lives.
These grants allow HHF to provide funding to a wide range of local agencies and institutions serving individuals and families with diverse healthcare needs and, through combined funding and human resources, create a healthier Haywood County.
