This fund’s purpose is to assist in the development of character and promotion of good citizenship in and among young people in Avery County by awarding grants to organizations that work to instill the values of honesty, integrity, respect, resourcefulness, personal responsibility, and duty to God and country.
The primary intended beneficiaries are units chartered by the Boy Scouts of America and by the Girl Scouts of the United States of America.
The Avery Community Foundation will also consider qualified applications from nonprofits whose programs and services meet the fund’s criteria.
