The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina is a philanthropic organization and supports diverse initiatives throughout the region. Since 1978, The Community Foundation has made grants and scholarships of more than $130 million and these funds have been put to use to address many of the most pressing issues facing communities. By connecting donors’ passions with purpose, The Community Foundation has become a leading voice for change and a catalyst for solutions to Western North Carolina’s most challenging problems.
Altamont utilizes the team at The Community Foundation to help charitably inclined clients make meaningful contributions to the local community. At the same time, the teams at Altamont and Gould Killian make sure the donor is able to realize appropriate tax benefits.
Altamont is among a select few local investment advisors that have been approved to manage donor funds on the behalf of The Community Foundation. So not only can we help with gifting strategy, we can also ensure that the gift proceeds grow over time and provide appropriate contributions to local charities.
