Walnut Cove Members Association (WCMA)

WCMA started in 2007 as a Men’s Association with members who had one thing in common: learning about Asheville and giving back to the community.   Speakers from non-profit organizations were invited to share information about their organizations.  This, in turn, led to  pooling dues and distributing over $5000 to our neighbors in need.  Shortly after, the women at WC were inspired to do the same.  In 2010 the two groups merged into the members association WCMA.

Each year more and more generous residents became involved and the WCMA took hold becoming a community-wide effort to raise funds for these needy and deserving organizations.  With the on-going success of these efforts, the WCMA applied and received a 501(c)(3) incorporation status in December 2012.  Because of this, we were then required to establish  a Board of Directors and Executive Committee to steward the funds appropriately.

We are proud that in just six short years, we have grown from 56 members to nearly 200 who now donate over $500,000 to our local charities over the years.  We look forward to continued success.
