With the exception of a checking account to handle small operational expenses, the Hickory Nut Gorge Foundation has no funds allocated to operating costs, other than those donated in the Builders Circle pledge program.
Most work, events, and related operational expenses are provided by volunteers and board members.
Individual and business sponsors make it possible for the Foundation to honor a deserving member of the community through its annual Community Impact Awards Gala.
One of the valuable services provided through our association with the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina is in managing the endowment of the Hickory Nut Gorge Foundation. You can find full financial information about CFWNC here.
