The Foundation of FirstHealth is Growing a Legacy to Last a Lifetime. The legacy began eight decades ago with a wish and a vision for the future – where innovative thinking and generous community support could combine to plant a seed that continues to flourish and bloom.
The Foundation of FirstHealth is the catalyst for the philanthropy that has led FirstHealth of the Carolinas to become among the finest in the nation. We act as an umbrella of foundations serving throughout our system.
The Next Stepping Stone
Stepping Stones…our recent capital campaign. It began in 2004 with a goal to raise the funds necessary to consolidate our renowned heart services into a new, state-of-the-art heart center.
By the campaign’s end in 2008, the community had contributed $34,649,846 for the Heart Center, Emergency Department expansion, Hospice House and the Clara McLean Hospitality House.
That led us to the next stepping stone – one that will plant the seeds of a legacy to last a lifetime – The Endowment Campaign.
