The Fund for Haywood County serves donors and nonprofits. This endowment fund was established in 1994 by caring individuals who recognized the importance of a permanent charitable capital resource to support the ever-changing needs and opportunities in Haywood County.

Contributions made to The Fund for Haywood County are pooled and invested by The Community Foundation.  Proceeds from the investments are used to make grants while the original gifts remain intact, continuing to grow for the benefit of future generations. 

Nonprofit organizations and public institutions may apply to The Fund for Haywood County for support.  Review the guidelines and application information for the People in Need grants for more details.

You can make a difference in Haywood County 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. 

We decided many years ago that we would give back to this remarkable community that has been so good to us. We found we could do that through The Fund for Haywood County. We have the option of annual giving and creating a permanent fund that continues giving into the future. It is the perfect organization that facilitates our giving safely and efficiently. 

Ken and Kathy Wilson
