Annie Penn Foundation
Cone Health Annie Penn Hospital is a point of pride within Rockingham County, and our community members mean a great deal to us. Every innovation, every caring hand, every service is here to help our neighbors along a journey to greater health and wellness.
A giving foundation built on a commitment to health and wellness for all
Formed in 1990, the Annie Penn 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. Our donors bring real, visible change to the Rockingham County community and beyond. They support community members trying to juggle a diagnosis while making ends meet. They help fund our PENN Congregational Nurse Program, which partners with faith communities to serve patients across our region through health ministries. They make possible beautiful healing gardens, a community walking trail, nutritional services and nurse navigators specializing in the cancer journey. Our funds provide a steady stream of support for programs that mean a great deal to the health and well-being of our neighbors.

I love giving back to the hospital because they gave so much to us.
Vicky Alston gives back to Cone because the hospital treated her husband’s cancer several years ago, and she was incredibly impressed by the quality of care he received and the wonderful support she, as his caregiver, experienced in the process. Vicky served on the Annie Penn Foundation Board for nine years, and enjoys supporting all of the Foundation’s initiatives.
“I love giving back to the hospital because they gave so much to us. They always took a special interest in us, and so being able to give back after all they’ve done for us is so special.” Vicky Alson
You feel like you’re an individual here.
Ellen Campbell and her husband both experienced care at Cone’s Annie Penn campus firsthand: her for treatment of a kidney stone, and him for cancer. Having moved to Reidsville from Baltimore, Ellen was struck by what a strong role the hospital played in her new community, and wanted to give back. Ellen serves on the Annie Penn Foundation Board and plans to include the hospital in her will as a legacy gift.
“It’s amazing to have this full-service, terrific hospital in this small community. I feel so honored that I can give back. As a donor, you feel like you’re an individual here.” Ellen Campbell
