Thank you for your assistance!

Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

Please Note: Currently, we have 9 types of request statuses, indicated by various colorful “face icons” on the View all Requests page, as well as in the overall “Fulfilled Status” listed at the top of each request.

The overall “Fulfilled Status” of a request may not always match the individual statuses of a request’s various activities / updates listed below the request. For example:

If the same request was made to both Buncombe County and Asheville City Governments within one request, this is treated as two requests, and it’s possible that one entity’s request statuses could get marked as “Completed,” while the Overall Status of the request is still marked as “Government Processing Request.”

This just means that Sunshine Request is waiting on the rest of the results before we can mark the request as fully “Completed” overall.

If at any time you would like to track the status of your request, please search for your request via the “Search box” or list of requests on this page. Any updates we receive will be posted on our site as soon as we are able.

Status: Completed

    Hello Sunshine, apologies for the delayed response on this and we appreciate your patience. The Buncombe County Service Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, serves as fiduciary for all One Buncombe Fund donations. The Buncombe County Service Foundation supplied funds to Mountain BizWorks to facilitate the loans. Mountain BizWorks would be the holder of the information requested, however, client specific information is confidential as between lender and borrower.

     

    The One Buncombe website does however offer a great deal of aggregated impact data here. Thanks,
    Kassi Day

    Good morning, Sunshine Request:
    Please note, this request was to the County of Buncombe, not the City of Asheville. Additionally, the city has no records responsive to the request as the One Buncombe Fund is a project of the Buncombe County Department of Social Services.
    Be safe and well,
