SPRUCE PINE, NC – Dogwood Health Trust will co-host a community meeting for its Leverage Fund with AMY Wellness Foundation on Wednesday, Jan. 22 from 10-11 a.m., at 31 Cross Street, Banquet Hall, in Spruce Pine. The Leverage Fund will help Western North Carolina nonprofits, government agencies or collaborations apply for and receive state or national funding from outside the region to support the work of improving health and wellness within the region.

To provide additional insight and answer questions about the Leverage Fund, Dogwood Health Trust is partnering with legacy foundations to host a series of community meetings that will allow for questions and discussion around the topic. “As a Foundation committed to capacity-building, it is paramount that AMY Wellness Foundation provides additional support to nonprofits. This includes helping them find other resources for funding,” said Nora Frank, Associate Director of AMY. “We want to see these communities thrive and the Leverage Fund is a great opportunity to potentially pull in much needed national and state funding,” she continued. To RSVP for this meeting, email Nora Frank at N.Frank@amywellnessfoundation.org

Through the Leverage Fund, Dogwood Health Trust underwrites the services of professional, experienced grant writers to help individual organizations or collaboratives pursue funding from national and state sources. The Leverage Fund helps match nonprofits with the right grant writer and supports other costs associated with preparing a grant application, such as travel stipends or meeting costs.

Assistance from the Leverage Fund is available to 501(c)(3) nonprofits, local or regional government agencies, and collaborations between or among these organizations. The Leverage Fund supports efforts to apply for $100,000 or more that will ultimately improve health outcomes for residents of the region. There is no application or deadline to receive support. Interested organizations are encouraged to contact LeverageFund@dht.org to schedule a phone or in-person conversation. Visit dogwoodhealthtrust.org to learn more.
