The Foundation enhances the ability of Annie Penn Hospital to deliver state-of-the-art health care to all citizens within the hospital’s service area. The Foundation’s purpose is to raise funds and community awareness to enhance the health services provided by Annie Penn Hospital. As the sole governing body of the Foundation, the board of directors oversees the operational, strategic and financial plans of all foundation activities. Members are active participants in the fundraising process and serve as advocates for the hospital within the philanthropic community.
The Foundation Board is comprised of 24 volunteers who are carefully chosen community and professional leaders who preserve the Mission of Annie Penn Hospital and the Foundation to ensure that comprehensive medical services are being delivered in a quality manner consistent with the needs of Greater Rockingham County.

Women's Garden Party
The Annie Penn Foundation celebrated National Women’s Health Week on May 16 with a “garden party” fundraising event. Michelle Gethers-Clark, Cone Health board member, delivered the key note address and encouraged women to take care of themselves and their family.
Guess Who's Coming To Dinner
This is an evening of elegant, simultaneous dinner buffets in private homes throughout Reidsville.
This event is the Foundation’s newest fund raising event. Attendees do not know which home they would be dining in until they receive notification just prior to the event.
The Enchanted Evening
A wonderful way to begin the holiday season, the Enchanted Evening is a gala held in December and features a live band, spectacular food and an elegant evening of fun and dancing.
Income from the endowment is used to award grants for hospital needs, as well as, support community outreach. The primary way in which we have grown the endowment is through our fundraising events.
