February Spotlight – Brevard College

Brevard College’s commitment to aiding Appalachian families began in 1853 in a one-room schoolhouse where Brevard College’s first leader, Reverend Abernethy, set as a goal that, “None shall ever be turned away for want of means.”  Lake Toxaway Charities has been helping Brevard College fulfill this promise to local students since 1997.  Each year, deserving full-time students from Transylvania County with demonstrated financial need (as determined and calculated by the submission of federal financial aid forms) receive funds from the Lake Toxaway Charities Endowed Scholarship. During the 2017-2018 academic year, Brevard College committed over approximately $10 million in scholarship support at an average of $15,000 per qualified student, making every effort to lessen the burden of college debt after graduation.
