The Heart Society is a local, independent organization working to meet needs of people in Gaston County.
The Heart Society began in 1952 as a part of the American Heart Association, but disaffiliated in 1982. In 1982, the Heart Society joined the United Way of Gaston County.
As a local organization, 100% of the Heart Society’s resources are used in Gaston County.
An endowment with the Community Foundation offers donors an opportunity to invest in the Heart Society’s future through donations of stocks, and by naming the Heart Society as the beneficiary of life insurance policies, IRAs and 401-K plans.
