- Weekend of Giving
"To build a sense of community within Walnut Cove and to support our
members' charitable efforts in Western North Carolina."
The Walnut Cove Members Association (WCMA) is comprised of a group of Cliffs at Walnut Cove property owners who are interested in supporting local nonprofit charities. Not only are we a philanthropic group, but we are also a social group. Each year, we curate a mix of unique events that are exclusive to our members.
The WCMA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that raises money through member dues, donations, and our annual "Weekend of Giving". At the end of each year, these funds are distributed to a variety of local charitable organizations in which our members are actively involved. As an all volunteer organization, we have a very high efficiency rate of 97.5%. That means, almost all of your donations go out to help others.
Since its inception in 2007, WCMA has awarded 306 grants, totaling over $1,125,000, to a diverse range of nonprofits. We currently have over 300 members, many of whom volunteer as board and committee members. Our service to the community, along with our generous donations, has made Walnut Cove a valued and respected part of the greater Asheville area.
