The Yancey Fund

Graham Children's Health Services of Toe River, Inc. received $20,000 for a summer food program that will deliver food boxes to 100 to low-income families with children.

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.  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 Yancey Fund supports nonprofit organizations and public institutions through partnering with CFWNC’s People in Need grant program.  Review the guidelines and application information for details.  

The Yancey Fund has set a goal to raise $1.5 million by December, 2017.  Since inception, The Yancey Fund has made more than $800,000 in grants while our endowment now approaches $900,000.   

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.
