Community Foundations

As the community foundation in your region, you are on the front lines of the Keep 5 Local effort, so let us help you help your neighbors.

Community foundation staff, volunteers and supporters know first-hand what an incredible impact it will have on West Virginia to harness the financial power of 5% of today’s wealth.

As more West Virginia counties complete Transfer of Wealth studies and learn what their 5% potential is, community foundations will be armed with powerful information about opportunities for community development philanthropy. And those opportunities are at our fingertips.

If you have not yet completed a Transfer of Wealth study, let Keep 5 Local help you start the process.



If you have completed your TOW study and are ready to start encouraging your neighbors to Keep 5 Local, we have materials to help you begin. You have an incredible story to tell – let Keep 5 Local help you spread that message.

Access more Keep 5 Local materials by visiting our Media Center, and contact us for assistance in developing customized materials for your community foundation.
