You can make a difference in Transylvania 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.

Every community needs visionaries who imagine a better tomorrow. Isabel Nichols and her dream to create a fund that would forever meet the changing needs of Transylvania County caught our attention. By making a legacy commitment to the Transylvania Endowment, we are honored to stand with her in a continuing promise of philanthropy for our beloved community.
