About Us

In the Spartanburg Community Since 1991

The Spartanburg Regional Foundation serves a vital role in the Upstate of South Carolina by supporting Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System and non-profit organizations who work to address healthcare needs in the community. For more than 25 years, the Spartanburg Regional Foundation has raised money through direct contributions, sponsorships and events to support health and wellness. The Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and gives back nearly $3 million to the community every year.

Our Structure

Spartanburg Regional Foundation is led by Executive Director Kristy Caradori and is governed by a board of trustees. The Foundation is organized around three divisions, each with its own advisory board of volunteers. These divisions support programs, technology upgrades, capital campaigns, education and patient funds in the areas of cancer care, heart health and hospice.
