Sustainable organizations

Western North Carolina has a proud history of helping neighbors in need and creating homegrown solutions to address community challenges. The vision, creativity and dedication of leaders from all walks of life has given our region a broad network of nonprofit organizations and government agencies that work together to serve and engage both those who need assistance and those who wish to provide support.

In addition to the grants we make through our Strategic Community Investments, we are committed to helping organizations across our region access the connections, knowledge and expertise to strengthen their operations and broaden their sources of revenue. By investing in the sustainability and health of organizations in our region, we are helping to improve health and wellbeing for all Western North Carolinians.

Here's how we can help.
