We believe partnerships are crucial to our goal of creating real and lasting change in Western North Carolina. That’s why we are developing partnerships and providing much-needed funding to qualified organizations who effectively identify and address the unique challenges that face our WNC neighbors. By empowering non-profits, we can be a catalyst for positive change and improve people’s lives in all eighteen counties of WNC.
