In 1989, 4 years after the founding of The Blowing Rock Community Foundation, the Blowing Rock Country Club elected to join this worthwhile endeavor by dedicating the Community Service Days Golf & Tennis Tournaments to support the Blowing Rock Community Foundation.
Your contribution to the Community Service Day events will enable the Community Foundation to pursue its goal of service to the citizens of Blowing Rock and local students.
Proceeds are used to provide scholarships for college students from the Blowing Rock School District and grants to numerous local agencies and civic organizations every year.
The Blowing Rock Community Foundation was founded in 1985 to raise funds to be used exclusively for the benefit of the Blowing Rock Community. The Mission of the Blowing Rock community Foundation is to raise and award charitable contributions to non-profit organizations (501 c 3) and scholarships that benefit the Blowing Rock Community. At present, the fund exceeds $2,000,000 and has been increasing each year. We are building our endowment fund which helps to fund the Grant Project Program and Scholarships. Each year, the Community Foundation’s Board of Trustees approves all Project Grants and Scholarships based on documented need and merit.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." ~ Margaret Mead
