To the editor:

Davie County is listed as No. 10 in the 2019 Top Ten Most Generous Counties in North Carolina list.

That is number 10 of 100 counties.

What an amazing statement that makes about Davie County residents. We are well aware of that generosity at the Davie Community Foundation as we have the honor of working with many of those generous people.

It has been my pleasure during the year to tell you about some of the work the foundation is doing in the community and the people who are making it happen. My thanks to Mike Barnhardt and the Enterprise Record for giving me the space each week.

Every year new funds are generously added through gifts and bequests that expand the foundation’s reach in our community. We think of our fund list as Davie’s list of philanthropic families who care enough about their county to invest in it through an endowment. I invite you to visit the foundation website at daviefoundation.org to look at the list and learn more about the possibilities for making a difference in our community.

As 2022 comes to a close, I thank the many community members who are investing in Davie County through the foundation. I know personally how much our county deserves the Top 10 designation.

Wishing you the happiest of holidays with family and friends. We look forward to serving you in 2023.

Jane Simpson,


President/CEO, Davie Community Foundation
