The Pardee Hospital Foundation endowment supports the research, treatment, people, and programs of Pardee Hospital in perpetuity. The endowment’s sustained growth has made it possible for the Foundation to hire and retain the best employees, launch new programs, sponsor cutting-edge research, and, in general, fund everything that makes Pardee such an exceptional hospital. 

Our endowed funds provide a permanent, self-sustaining source which we can draw on every year. Every fiscal year, a portion of each fund goes to supporting Pardee Hospital’s critical life-saving care, while the rest maintains the fund’s overall market value. 

In other words, when you establish an endowed fund, you support Pardee from now until the end of time.

Andrew Schmidt joined Pardee Hospital Foundation in November 2023 as a Donor Engagement Officer. Andrew began his career in fundraising at his alma mater, Sewanee: The University of the South, as an assistant director in charge of reunions and volunteers, working on milestone giving campaigns as well as alumni engagement and stewardship events. Andrew holds a BA in Philosophy from Sewanee and recently earned a MA in Applied Arts & Sciences from the Liberal and Interdisciplinary Studies program at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Andrew previously served the Henderson Country community as an Advancement Analyst at nearby Kanuga Conference Center, where he was responsible for donor database administration, prospect research, and raising funds in support of a $15M capital campaign centered on a comprehensive renovation of the then-47-year-old Kanuga Lake Inn. Andrew looks forward to helping advance the mission of UNC Health and Pardee Hospital Foundation across the Western North Carolina region, and particularly in Transylvania County. When he’s not out and about visiting with donors, you can usually find Andrew scampering around DuPont and Pisgah with his wife, Sara and preschool-age son, Arthur.
