Creating a Lasting Resource
The Yancey Fund seeks to inspire philanthropy and strengthen charitable organizations serving Yancey County. The fund was established in 1998 by caring individuals who recognized the importance of a permanent charitable capital resource to support changing needs and opportunities.
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. You can make a difference in Yancey County by making a tax-deductible gift of cash, securities or other assets.
Pool your gift with those of your neighbors to do the most good.
