WCHS/Healing Bridges receives grant of $1,313.29 from WCCF Gives 2022

Posted November 10, 2022

Washington Communities Human Services/Healing Bridges, a nonprofit based in Washington County that specializes in behavioral health, receives a grant of $1,313.29 from the Washington County Community Foundation for the nonprofit's participation in WCCF Day of Gives 2022.

It was a record-breaking year for WCCF Gives, as $1.7 million in grants are being awarded to participating charities this year. The grant money awarded to WCHS/Healing Bridges will be strictly used to further the charitable work and mission of the organization.

"We are always excited to participate in WCCF Gives when September rolls around," said Natalie Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Healing Bridges. "This year was one of the most successful results we had, and The Foundation made the entire application process easy as can be with regular email updates, free training seminars and easy-to-follow instructions and presentations. We plan on using this year’s earnings to expand the knowledge of our services to wider populations and connect more individuals to behavioral health treatment.”

Healing Bridges recently underwent a rebranding campaign amidst WCCF Gives this past September that included a new website, organization name and logo, however, the newly rebranded nonprofit was still able to excel during the annual Day of Giving.

WCCF Gives Day has taken place from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every September 15th since 2013 and has been a huge success from the start. All gifts made to participating charities via and all designated WCCF Gives check contributions received by 8 p.m. on that day are increased by part of a $100,000 bonus pool to make donating to local charitable organizations convenient and to increase the value of each gift made.

“With the event gaining popularity each year, we are looking forward to be given the opportunity to receive more contributions and create more awareness for our nonprofit the next time around,” said Riley Bitonti, Marketing and Development Specialist at Healing Bridges. “My favorite part about WCCF Gives is that it creates a platform for small nonprofits like Healing Bridges to build a presence among local community members and gain support from new donors who otherwise may not have known what we stand for yet. It is a day where people come together to help make a difference in their local communities by donating to organizations that they feel passionate about, and there is no better feeling than giving to someone or something that you truly care for.”
