NCCF has decades of experience helping other LOCAL nonprofits serve Nelson County residents

One is the Nelson Heritage Center which sponsors a food bank distribution and a host of other community services.

Toast to a Good Cause

As the Virginia Distillery Company’s 2020 Charity Cask Benefit recipient, NCCF receives the net proceeds on every bottle sold from this cask. Makes a great gift!

Support for the Young

Now more than ever, NCCF grants are needed to support youth educational, esteem-building, and environmental awareness programs

Having fun fund-raising

Known for its signature fund raiser, NCCF’s Opportunity Ball gives supporters a chance to dress up, kick up their heels, and party—all for a great cause.

Support for Elders

Whether it’s help building an access ramp, or paying for needed medications, nonprofits that support seniors continue to rely to NCCF grants to fund such programs.

Getting Families Involved

NCCF partners with local businesses to offer family fun—like a foot race at Thanksgiving—while raising money to give back to the community.
