Whatever your means or charitable goals, the Avery Community Foundation makes it easy to become a philanthropist. You may contribute to any of the funds at any time, in any amount - or start a new endowment for your favorite charity with $10,000 in initial funding. (Scholarship Funds require $25,000 in initial funding.). We can help you explore estate planning options that will benefit causes near to your heart, while meeting your own financial goals. Our affiliation with the North Carolina Community Foundation assures professional stewardship of all funds.
