The Fred A. Moss Charity Trust was created to benefit development of the underserved, particularly in Western North Carolina.
Doctor Moss believed in helping those who want to help themselves in order to make them more able and resourceful. He wanted ultimately to benefit society as a whole.
He was born of modest means but by hard work and initiative was able to help many others. In his later years, he decided to donate a portion of his estate to help others in an ongoing fashion. This was the basis of the Fred A. Moss Charity Trust.
