December 5th is International Volunteer Day
This is the perfect time to say thank you to all of our members who go out into the community to volunteer their time and skills. One of the things that makes the WCMA so special is that we only fund organizations in which our members are actively involved. This way we are not only supporting the charity, but our volunteer member, as well.
Of course we would also like to thank all of you who volunteer directly for the WCMA by serving on a committee or helping at the Weekend of Giving. This year we have $380,000 to give to Western North Carolina charities and we couldn't have done it without you.

Survey Results are In!
Thank you to all who participated in the annual WCMA survey. We would like to share three files - (1) a summary of the responses, (2) a listing of all the individual comments, and (3) a short summary of the most prevalent comments along with the most notable results. The WCMA leadership team will be having follow-up discussions to determine how to respond to suggestions in the survey; we are always looking for ways to improve. As a member-focused organization, we welcome your input throughout the year. Feel free to ask questions about the survey or pass along additional comments.

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 $1,250,000 to 306 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.
