Catawba Valley Community Foundation

The Catawba Valley Community Foundation is a growing family of philanthropic funds, source of grants for local causes and partner for donors. CVCF was founded in 1997 and is led by a local volunteer advisory board that helps build community assets through the creation of permanent endowments, makes grants and leverages leadership – all for the benefit of Alexander, Caldwell and Catawba counties.

The CVCF, through the NC Community Foundation, makes it easy to become a philanthropist, whatever your means or charitable goals. You can open an endowment for your favorite cause at any time – or contribute to an existing fund in any amount.

The CVCF board advises the Catawba Valley Community Fund, the unrestricted community grantmaking fund, to support local needs. This competitive grants program is held annually. Because advisory board members live and work in Alexander, Caldwell and Catawba counties, they can leverage resources to help meet local needs and access opportunities.
