Meet Ken and Kathy Wilson

We decided many years ago that we would give back to this remarkable community that has been so good to us. We found we could do that through The Fund for Haywood County. We have the option of annual giving and creating a permanent fund that continues giving into the future. It is the perfect organization that facilitates our giving safely and efficiently.
