“This is a great opportunity for local nonprofits to expand their impact in our community,” said Clay Dangerfield, HCCF board president. “We are excited to partner with nonprofit leaders to create lasting change in the community.”
An affiliate of the North Carolina Community Foundation, the Haywood County Community Foundation is a growing family of philanthropic funds, source of grants for local causes and partners for donors. The HCCF was founded in 1994 and is led by a local volunteer advisory board that helps build community assets through the creation of permanent endowments, makes grants and leverages leadership – all for the benefit of Haywood County.
The HCCF board advises the Haywood County Community Fund, the unrestricted community grantmaking fund, to support local needs. This competitive grants program is held on an annual basis. Since advisory board members live and work in Haywood County, they can leverage resources to help meet local needs and access opportunities. In addition to Dangerfield, board members include: Wilma Boatwright, Jim Bromley, Gary Lance and Kipp Ray.
