Did you know that the Altapass Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit that depends on the generosity of donors to fund the programs that support our mission of preserving the land, history, and culture of the Altapass region? There are many ways you can help. One of the easiest is to contribute to our endowment or general operating fund, which helps assure we will be around for another quarter century. Or becoming a legacy member. Are you a business? Why not sponsor an event, a performance, or program?

It's so simple to show how much you appreciate what the Orchard does in the community, for people of all ages, and the land on which they call home or for which they have fond memories. Take a moment to reflect on what the Orchard at Altapass has done over the past 25 years, then follow the links below to sign up, or give us a call, 828-765-9531. We're happy to tell you all about the Orchard and how you can make a difference.

Friend of the Orchard

Become a "Friend of the Orchard". We're a non-profit working orchard and educational venue, and as a "friend" you'll be showing that you care about the our mission. There are so many levels from which to choose; just pick the one you feel fits you. All your donations are tax deductible, and the good feeling you'll get by helping to keep the Orchard going is free.


The Orchard at Altapass has been here since 1994. We plan to be here for another 25, offering entertainment and education programs that reflect a simpler time, while preserving the land and propagating the apples. You can help us ensure our legacy by contributing to the Orchard Endowment Fund at several recognition levels. Make a donation online on this site, or mail a check or money order. Details are on the Donation Page. If you prefer, please give us a call or email for an appointment. We'll sit down and speak with you about endowment giving.

Legacy Giving

Become a member of the Orchard Legacy Society through a charitable bequest or estate plan. Legacy funding ensures your continued support for a cause and place you care about, and gives you the opportunity to carry on your family-giving philanthrophy. 

To learn all the details about joining the Legacy Society at a level in keeping with your wishes, please give us a call, or email for an appointment. We'll sit down with you and explain all the options available, ensuring that your wishes are clearly understood and carefully carried out in the future.
