Ten Charities Designated as Recipients of the
WCMA Coronavirus Emergency Grant Fund
Ten local organizations working on the front lines of the coronavirus crisis received a total of $157,000 from the WCMA emergency fund. These non-profits are working overtime to address the immediate needs of people tragically impacted by the current environment. The money will primarily be dedicated to basic needs such as food and living expenses. More than 70 of our WCMA members, plus Wicked Weed and Walnut Cove Realty, contributed to the fund, which was initially seeded with membership dues and donations.

We are Making a Difference!
week Sierra Paturalsksi awarded a $25,000 check to MANNA FoodBank from
the WCMA Coronavirus Emergency Grant Fund, which purchased an entire
truckload of food to be distributed to local residents in need. Both
volunteers and the National Guard are loading the trucks and getting the
food out into the community. This is one example of the many ways in
which the WCMA is supporting our community during this challenging time.
Four Seasons Hospice sent a special "thank you" video to our Members in appreciation of our emergency grant. To learn more about how much they appreciate the grant and how they are using the money, click below.

Philanthropy and Fun
The WCMA is a charitable and social organization for Walnut Cove property owners. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that raises money through dues, donations, and our annual Weekend of Giving. Since our creation in 2007, we have donated over $1.6 million to more than 340 deserving Western North Carolina charities in which our members are actively involved. And as an all volunteer organization, we have a very high efficiency rate of 97.5%. That means almost all of your donation goes to help the community!
The WCMA is also a great way to meet and socialize with neighbors. Each year we organize a variety of unique events that are exclusively for our members. Many of these events offer an opportunity to explore exciting local venues while others take place at Walnut Cove.
