  • All donors will be entered into a raffle for a beautiful, gallery-quality piece of pottery donated by one of our fabulous, local Empty Bowls artisans.
For any MANNA donor — of personal services, goods in kind, money or property — a gift marks the beginning of rewarding relationships. You’ll be inspired year after year by MANNA’s innovative, adaptive leadership and staff; dedicated corps of volunteers; and the supportive WNC community we all seek to serve. Sound organizational stewardship, efficiency, transparency and integrity are the bedrock, placing MANNA at the top of the nation’s charities. But the beating heart of the organization and your principal ongoing reward as a donor will be your connections with its ever-expanding circle of wonderful people.
