The Community Foundation is a nonprofit established in 1978 to build a permanent pool of charitable capital for the 18 counties of Western North Carolina including the Qualla Boundary. We work with individuals, families and corporations to create and manage a growing collection of charitable funds that make grants to nonprofits or public agencies in our region. You can support our work by donating to any of these funds. If you have any questions, contact Naomi Davis at 828-367-9906 or by email at davis@cfwnc.org.
