Our new organization was founded in June, 2014. Prior to becoming RHI Legacy Foundation, we were a non-profit supporting Foundation for Rutherford Hospital and later Rutherford Regional Health System. When our local hospital became affiliated with a larger, for-profit system, we began operations as a separate entity. We have broadened our work to support health and wellness initiatives for our entire county. As Rutherford Hospital Foundation, and later Rutherford Regional Health Foundation, we raised over 5 million dollars to support our local non-profit hospital.
Our grant cycles and guidelines are published on our Website. Special Events to raise funds for specific projects include our Annual Golf Classic and Women Together. See our Facebook albums for photos!
