2018 Year End Report - Celebrating 40 Years

A community foundation is a concrete expression of belief in the future, the power of connection and the importance of caring for others. For 40 years, CFWNC has worked with others to expand philanthropy across 18 counties. People and partnerships have driven our growth. CFWNC transforms gifts from individuals, families and businesses into grants that flow to nonprofits benefiting Western North Carolina's diverse residents and unique assets.

The Foundation has grown into a regional hub for philanthropy with $329 million (September 2018) in assets. That growth is the result of people choosing to invest in this region. Good and generous people care about where they live and the people who live around them. They want to create a better future for everyone, and that plays out in their planning and giving. In a way, CFWNC is a repository for the region’s greatest hopes and most optimistic champions.
