Project Forward

UNC Health Blue Ridge is moving healthcare forward in our communities through a number of building projects to include a new Cancer Center on the Valdese Campus and a new Intensive Care Unit and Emergency Department on the Morganton Campus.

Donate to the Hope Campaign

ABOUT THE HOPE CAMPAIGN: Helping Our Patients and Employees (HOPE) is our annual employee giving campaign. Funds raised through HOPE are used to support a variety of programs for our patients and care team members, including the Patient Assistance Fund, Project Forward Fund, Blue Ridge HealthCare Foundation - Granting HOPE, and United Way.


Join the 30th Anniversary Pearl Club

2021 marked 30 years of the Blue Ridge HealthCare Foundation! To commemorate this milestone we established our 30th Anniversary Pearl Club. The pearl is the traditional symbol for a 30th anniversary, and because the pearl is something extra special that takes time to grow, much like the foundation, we chose to use it as the symbol of this campaign. We strive to grow and be polished every year to ensure that we can continue to meet the growing health needs of UNC Health Blue Ridge and its patients – our friends and neighbors.

You can become a member of our Pearl Club by pledging or giving $360 or more. You will be recognized on our website as a Pearl Club member and in the annual impact report. Your donation to the club will support the foundation’s general fund so we can continue to advance care and met the ever-changing needs of our patients.


Neighbors Helping Neighbors

This fund was established to assist UNC Health Blue Ridge’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly aiding UNCHBR patients, residents and teammates who are experiencing a financial hardship due to the crisis, and future essential needs as identified by the Blue Ridge HealthCare Foundation and UNC Health Blue Ridge.


Vision: To provide resources for healthy lives through inspired giving.

Mission: To enhance the work of Blue Ridge HealthCare to improve the quality of life for those served.
