Overview:

At Encova, we believe our success is dependent on how we conduct ourselves in the marketplace; that includes our commitment to not only corporate interests, but also to those that promote the quality of life in the communities we serve. The Encova Foundation of West Virginia can help to fund local non-profits and other institutions in communities where Encova has a meaningful presence.

Mission 

The Encova Foundation of West Virginia exists to invest in and realize Encova’s corporate responsibility to support the well-being of local and regional communities where Encova and its subsidiaries conduct business. 

Funding Priorities

The Encova Foundation of West Virginia serves primarily the state of West Virginia but will consider, on a limited basis, applications from the footprint in which Encova writes insurance.

However, the Foundation Board recognizes that not all organizations and projects directly cover any one specific region or state. 

In order to focus our resources on projects that we feel can make a significant impact, we have created a listing of initiatives most closely connected with the company’s goals and identity. As such, the Encova Foundation of West Virginia will support a variety of organizations, projects, programs and/or events, provided that they fall under one of the following priorities:

Workplace Safety

We firmly believe that safety is an asset, not an expense. The benefits of having a safe workplace are endless: companies can save money and maximize returns on their investments by reducing accident expenses.

Community Arts and Education

We are proud to celebrate and promote the strength and excellence of the many art and education organizations within our region’s communities.

Youth

We are committed to help cultivate a sound foundation for our community leaders of tomorrow.

Healthcare Issues

Supporting a healthier quality of life for all citizens allows companies and organizations to perform to maximum capabilities, thereby increasing output, morale and so on.

In addition to the above priorities, we ask the following of our applicants:

  • That your project, initiative or event be well defined and specifically outlined in your request .
  • That your project, initiative or event promote significant and lasting effects in your region or community.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • When an organization applies for a grant through the Encova Foundation of West Virginia, the group must show that the organization is based in the United States and is classified as legitimate through the federal government with a verifiable tax identification number.

Preferences:

  • Special consideration will be given to applications that may not fall within state lines, provided the results affect one or more of the above-mentioned areas. 

Ineligibility:

  • Please be aware that the Encova Foundation of West Virginia will not consider donations to the following:
    • National fundraising campaigns
    • Political, labor, fraternal, military or religious organizations or initiatives
    • Organizations that practice discrimination by race, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, origin, disability, veteran status, military status or other factors
