Our Typical Donor
The Hickory Nut Gorge

Who is Our Typical Donor?

We receive this question a good bit. And we are always eager to answer that it’s you!

The individuals, businesses, and families who have caught hold of our vision are people who love the Gorge so much that they understood the power of our tagline:
Giving Beyond the Horizon and they put it into action.

Whether it’s by way of their servant spirit, consistent volunteer efforts, their annual contribution or their quiet one-time donation, they give with
commitment and enthusiasm.

They are people with and without wealth. They are committed, caring and compassionate. They give of themselves without regard for recognition.
They are your neighbors, business owners, and friends.

They are the people of the Gorge helping present and future generations in the Gorge.

They embody the great quote by poet, Maya Angelou:

“When we cast our bread upon the waters, we can presume that someone downstream,
whose face we may never see, will benefit from our action.”
