Be a Superhero in our community! WNC Superheroes needs folks to spread the word about what we are doing and who we are helping. By sharing our active cases with your social media connections you can affect positive change in someone's life. Our model is simple, connect people in the community who want to help with those in an acute crisis. Many making small contributions can make a big difference in the lives of people in our community.
None of this work is possible without contributions from our donors. One of the things that make us different is how we operate financially, we maintain two distinct resource streams, one to cover overhead and one to cover the actual work we do for our clients. When a Superhero makes a donation to cover expenses related to a specific case, at least 97% (credit card processing is 3%)of every dollar goes to fund that case. We also need funding to cover our limited overhead, we solicit donations specifically for those costs.

A word about where your donation goes. For 501c3 organizations, the IRS prohibits earmarked donations, that means a donor cannot specify who their donation goes to. When you make a donation to a case your money goes into a pool and money from that pool is used to fund the case.
