Most of NCCF’s affiliate foundations have established a community fund that supports local issues and causes through an annual competitive grants process. This is a model that our affiliate partners strongly endorse because local dollars stay local to help finance critical needs and quality of life issues. The Watauga County Community Foundation selected Boone’s F.A.R.M. Café as a recent recipient. This novel “pay-what-you-can” approach is being modeled across the country.
