The Story of Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation

When it comes to caring about the people on the Plateau, no one does it better than the leaders and donors of Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation. Since 1982, our volunteer board of community members has worked in partnership with caring individuals, community groups, business leaders and generous donors to raise more than $5 million to support the programs that make the Foothills Communities healthy and safe havens to raise families and grow old.

The Foundation oversees four initiatives in the community: Neighbors Feeding Neighbors (addressing hunger); Foothills Drug Free Coalition (finding solutions to drug and alcohol issues that keep residents safe); Access to Healthcare (Focusing on door-to-door direct service of non-emergency transportation for healthcare appointments); and Mental Health (Examining Mental Health issues and their impact on Plateau society while reducing stigma).

Through our Care Van, Dental Program, hot, and home-delivery meal system for seniors, we are filling the gaps and forging the way toward creating a healthier community for everyone.

Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation is designated by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501 C 3, non profit organization, offering a tax free avenue for donors to contribute in many forms, such as gifts, bequests, memorials, and legacies. It is with the critical help of generous supporters that the Foundation can carry out its mission of providing quality healthcare awareness programs in the communities it serves.
