How Do I Give?

Everyone can be a philanthropist, and your contributions matters to the community and West Virginia.

By working with the community foundation in your county or region, their expert advisers can help you identify the resources that will help you create a legacy for future generations. Now is the time for you to be part of a private-sector solution to long-term community development needs.

Community Foundations are nonprofit, tax-exempt, publicly-supported grant-making organizations serving specific regions. These foundations are public charities that develop broad support from many unrelated donors with a wide range of charitable interests in a specific community. The long-term goal of a community foundation is to build permanent funds supported by many donors

Each community foundation has an independent board that is representative of the local public, and they all offer diverse grants programs to benefit the regions they serve. In addition to making grants, these foundations often play a leadership role in their communities, serving as a resource for grant information, broker training and technical assistance for local nonprofits.

Since each community foundation has its own assortment of resources and recommendations, you will appreciate the flexibility and ease their advisors can provide when you add a philanthropic component to your estate planning.

Your organization can continue making lives better by fulfilling your day-to-day mission while helping to secure a more stable financial future for the communities you serve.

How? By partnering with your local community foundation to create an endowed fund that will benefit your charitable organization far into the future.
