Granting Hope

The Blue Ridge HealthCare Foundation holds an annual employee giving campaign. The HOPE Campaign focuses on Helping Our Patients and Employees. Teammates within Carolinas HealthCare System Blue Ridge can donate to a variety of areas including the Granting HOPE fund. Following the HOPE Campaign, departments within CHS Blue Ridge can apply for grant money during our Granting HOPE period for supplies, equipment, projects and other items that enhance patient care.
