Community Foundation of Gaston County Inc.



We began operations on July 11, 1978 as The Garrison Community Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) public charity. Initial funding of $726,524 came from remainder assets of the closed Garrison Community Hospital. Our current total assets are more than $113 million, with over $15 million of that total in unrestricted community endowments.


In 1987, the name was changed to The Community Foundation of Gaston County, Inc., to better describe its broad community role. The historic name was preserved by simultaneous renaming of the main general fund— now known as the Garrison Fund.
