Creating a Lasting Resource

The Transylvania Endowment serves donors and nonprofits. This endowment fund was established in 1998 by caring individuals who recognized the importance of a permanent charitable capital resource to support the ever-changing needs and opportunities in Transylvania County.

Contributions made to the Transylvania Endowment 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 Transylvania 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.
Generosity multiplied.
