A Letter from our Co-Chairs
December 1, 2020
Dear Lake Toxaway Neighbor,
We deeply appreciate your 2020 contributions to Lake Toxaway Charities (LTC) and hope you will help us meet our ultimate 2020 goal of more than one million dollars by supporting our annual “end-of-year” donation request. Year to date LTC raised an astounding $957,345, and you can be proud of this achievement due to your personal generosity. As Transylvania County grows and the Corona virus continues to impact our community members, local charities are experiencing greater needs. To continue to serve them well, we need your support.
When you review the linked brochure and description of the services of Lake Toxaway Charities recipients, you will see that two thirds of our dollars go to organizations involved in crisis prevention and/or critical care. The remaining third is dedicated to educational endeavors.
This brochure also provides information on how you can donate to Lake Toxaway Charities. We accept checks, gifts of appreciated stock, and monetary gifts to the Lake Toxaway Legacy Endowment Fund. Currently 31% of the 900 Lake Toxaway Estates property owners donate annually to this charity. One of our many goals for the future is to increase this percentage as more of our owners choose to support LTC. Lake Toxaway Charities is a 501 (c)(3) organization, and your gift is fully tax deductible. More importantly, 98% of your contributions directly benefit Transylvania County individuals and families who can least afford to pay for assistance. Because volunteers staff LTC, only 2% goes towards minimal expenses such as postage, supplies, printing, insurance, and marketing. Your personal year-end contribution will help us meet our 2020 goal of $1,250,000 to maintain serving the needs of our county.
Thank you for your gift to Lake Toxaway Charities.
Chip Brown, Jenny Renfroe, and Diane Roberts
