You can make a difference in the Swannanoa Valley by making a tax-deductible gift of cash, securities, life insurance or real estate. By pooling your gift with those of your neighbors, you can provide significant support for local needs.

Marcus and I came to the Swannanoa Valley as a young couple with no resources, but lots of hopes and dreams.  For us and our family, now four generations, this community has provided wonderful opportunities for family, business, faith, school, civic and cultural relationships.  This special community has played a vital role in raising and shaping the life values of our family’s children, grandchildren, and now, great-grandchildren.  Promoting and supporting our local endowment is the very best way for us to pay our gratitude forward, so that many others in our Valley can thrive.
