The Yancey Fund serves donors and nonprofits in Yancey County.  This endowment fund was established in 1998 by caring individuals who recognized the importance of a permanent charitable resource to support the ever-changing needs and opportunities in Yancey County.

Contributions made to The Yancey Fund are pooled and invested by The Community Foundation. By making a tax-deductible gift of cash, securities, life insurance or real estate, you can pool your gift with those of your neighbors and provide significant support for local needs. 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 Yancey Fund for support. Review the guidelines and application information for The Yancey Fund  for more details. The deadline to apply is March 1. For information on recent grants awarded by The Yancey Fund and other news and events, go to the links on the right side of this page.
