A Letter from our Board
December 1, 2021
Dear Lake Toxaway Estates Neighbor,
Lake Toxaway Charities was founded over 45 years ago through an incredibly humble and grass roots effort of residents who wanted to help their less fortunate neighbors. These founders recognized the current and the anticipated needs of our community for years to come. Through the years, LTC’s supporting grants to local non-profit organizations have been faithful, consistent, and growing.
The charitable organizations Lake Toxaway Charities supports offer assistance to the Hungry, the Homeless, those in need of Healthcare, the Abused, and to Education systems and programs. Over $4,000,000 in grants has been disbursed to date, with over $650,000 just this year. Hundreds of volunteers have put in countless hours of their time and expertise and have touched the lives of one third of our county’s residents. Minimal part time staff has been added which has had a very valuable impact while still maintaining a ratio of 98% of your gifts directly benefiting Transylvania County individuals and families. Your generous contributions of time and resources have made all of this possible, and we thank you.
As Transylvania County grows, so do the economic and social challenges seen in many communities across the country. To continue to serve them well, we need your continued support.
This brochure provides informational facts about the positive impact of your contributions in the community. It also provides information on how you can donate to Lake Toxaway Charities via checks, gifts of appreciated stock, and monetary gifts designated for the newly established Lake Toxaway Charities Community Giving Fund. Lake Toxaway Charities is a 501 (c)(3) organization, and your gift is fully tax deductible.
Please accept our heartfelt gratitude for embracing our culture of care and concern for those in need. You continue to amaze us with your gifts, and because of you, Lake Toxaway Charities is able to reach deeply into Transylvania County with generous assistance. We thank you.
Chip Brown, Jenny Renfroe, Gary Sperduto, and Carroll Summerour
