Meet Stell Huie

The Highlands Community Fund is a permanent charitable resource for Highlands that supports nonprofits in our community. In partnership with The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, the Fund has made 118 grants totaling more than $750,000. CFWNC provides wonderful options for donors who wish to benefit Highlands in special ways. I trust The Community Foundation and am very dedicated to the Fund's mission for this community.
