About the Foundation

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
