CFWNC is committed to helping Western North Carolina grow its community-based philanthropy.
Since 1992, The Community Foundation has supported and encouraged the growth of affiliate funds to extend and strengthen philanthropy across our 18-county region. Each affiliate is raising funds to build an endowment to support charitable causes through grants in their communities.
CFWNC's network of affiliates allows us to keep our promise to build philanthropy across Western North Carolina. We provide investment, accounting, grant making, training and administrative support, allowing affiliate advisory boards to focus on setting priorities, attracting donors and supporting nonprofit organizations. The affiliate advisory boards, reflective of each community, provide a strong connection to needs and opportunities across our region. Each affiliate is promoting local philanthropy and growing local funds to meet more needs.
