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, with a volunteer board of community members who work in partnership with caring individuals, community groups, business leaders and generous donors, the Foundation has raised more than $4 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, which addresses hunger; Foothills Drug Free Coalition, which looks at drug and alcohol issues to find solutions that keep residents safe; Community Violence Prevention Task Force, which focuses on domestic violence and building a kinder, more caring community; and Mental Health, which is examining those issues and their impact on Plateau society.
Through programs like the Care Van, Dental Van and our hot, 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 which offers 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.
