The Yancey Fund


You can make a difference in Yancey 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.

Beverly and I are proud to call Yancey County our home.  First attracted by the mountains, the beautiful countryside and the mild summer climate, as each year has passed we have become more and more appreciative of the people, the history and the culture of arts and farming.  We became interested in helping those in need and preserving the unique culture and the natural resources of our new home.  That is why I joined The Yancey Fund Advisory Board and included The Yancey Fund as a beneficiary in my IRA.
