What Your Donation Does
The Hickory Nut Gorge

Combined with the financial support of others, your gift builds up the endowment. The stronger the endowment becomes over time, the greater the potential for earnings that can be turned around and awarded as charitable grants here in the Gorge.

It’s giving at its greatest level because it makes a lasting impact and it truly defines coming full circle with your investment.

You get to see some of the impact now, but the greatest impact is made beyond your own lifetime.
