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. We host our Annual Golf Classic each fall. Please visit our website to make a donation or sponsor an event. See our Facebook albums for photos!
