East West Capital is pleased to support several organizations engaged in making a real impact in our community:
For 40 years, MAHEC has provided high quality, compassionate healthcare as a foundation for training top physicians and health professionals. Located in Asheville, MAHEC serves a 16-county region in WNC and is the largest Area Health Education Center in North Carolina, which evolved to address national and state concerns with the supply, retention and quality of health professionals.

Established by artists and incorporated in 1948, the Asheville Art Museum is committed to being a vital force in community and individual development and to providing life-long opportunities for education and enrichment through the visual arts. Innovative programming utilizing an outstanding collection of American art of the 20th and 21st centuries has established the Asheville Art Museum as a leader in the arts for Western North Carolina and the Southeast.
The Cullowhee Revitalization Endeavor focuses on the area commonly known as “Old Cullowhee” which extends along Old Cullowhee Road near the back entrance of Western Carolina University. Some Cullowhee residents recall a period in the 1970’s when Old Cullowhee was a thriving business area with a range of restaurants and nearly 45 businesses. CuRvE will be working with local business leaders to bring this area to life once again. The area along the Tuckaseigee River is a natural treasure that should be utilized and preserved. Through eco-friendly efforts, CuRvE hopes to develop parks, trails, and green spaces that will be enjoyed by many generations to come.
