Friends of Founders Park received $5,000 for improvements planned for the Kelsey-Hutchinson Founders Park in 2016.

The Highlands Community Fund serves donors and nonprofits.  This endowment fund was established in 1996 by caring individuals who recognized the importance of a permanent charitable capital resource to support the ever-changing needs and opportunities in the Highlands region. 

Contributions made to the Highlands Community Fund 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.

The Highlands Community Fund supports nonprofit organizations and public institutions primarily through partnering with CFWNC's People in Need grant program. Review the People in Need grant program for guidelines and application information.

You can make a difference in Highlands 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.
