We Invite You To Join Us By Giving The Gift That Will Last A Lifetime - Education!

To support students at every stage of their journey, to assist world-class educators, to ensure a dynamic and innovative school system, the Buncombe County School System counts on your support to raise funds that will expand and extend these opportunities.

All members of our community who have joined in support of the Foundation and its programs are heroes in our eyes. You have helped guide a new generation of scholars, entrepreneurs, workers and community members toward greater and last success. But our work as only begun. We need your help to provide security, resources, and educational opportunities to more students than ever. Your support and belief in the promise of each child is what makes our community so extraordinary.

“Every child has been influenced by a teacher and a teacher exists within a school so when you put funds into a school, a child a student, so it goes into the future. That’s why we do what we do every day. The extra resources lead us to that tomorrow. There should be no “but” that gets in the way of accomplishing what teachers and students need.”
