Supporting the Appalachian Highlands through philanthropy

Ballad Health Foundation was created to build relationships that fulfill the mission and vision of Ballad Health – focusing on the power of generosity to improve the health of our region.

Our donors are over 5,000 philanthropically-minded businesses, community members and Ballad Health team members who support us in our mission to enhance rural healthcare.

By working together around a common vision, the Ballad Health Foundation and our charitable donors can transform the health and well-being of our communities.

What your donations support

Regional families and children

Our team is driven to help local families thrive by improving conditions for future generations.

We do this by focusing on initiatives, equipment and treatments that serve our children. The Ballad Health Foundation makes grants that support clinical- and community-based programs through the Niswonger Children's Network and community health projects.

Patients in need

In addition to our investment in children's health and wellness, we also provide support for Ballad Health's patient assistance and hospice programs – offering comfort to some of our neighbors who need it most.

We also work alongside our partners to support our community health funds and clinical research, as well as provide funding to ensure that all Ballad Health hospitals and care sites have the best possible equipment, facilities, staff and programs to help enhance rural healthcare.
