Helping those in need in Avery County, N.C.

Mission and Purpose

The idea of the High Country Charitable Foundation was conceived by a small group of local residents who recognize the importance of giving back to the community.

Local Community

The vision of our foundation is to provide for needy Avery County residents and animals by supporting local public charities and other private foundations.

Our goal is to use our efforts to keep expenses as low as possible with the majority of funds raised going to those in need.

We are committed to maintaining our outstanding culture of living by three core values:

1. Community Involvement

We care about raising funds, along with donating time and talent to meet the critical needs of our neighbors and animals in need.

2. Excellence

To operate with integrity and transparency: our goal is to strive to generate the biggest impact for our community.

3. Value

To provide value to our contributors by distributing every dollar we collect to local agencies serving the needy. To provide value to the communities by maximizing our financial and volunteer resources.
