The Yadkin County Community Foundation is one of 59 affiliates of the statewide North Carolina Community Foundation. YCCF is a nonprofit, publicly supported philanthropic institution that manages a pool of charitable funds whose income is used to benefit the Yadkin County community in grants to nonprofit organizations, educational programs and scholarships. Some funds are restricted by their donors to specific purposes or agencies, while others are donor advised and are not part of the grant cycle. However, together these funds reflect the diverse charitable interests of our community and enable YCCF to respond to a wide variety of organizations and programs. YCCF has a family of 15 endowment funds under its umbrella.
