Overview:

The Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation (EWVCF) is offering an extra round of Youth and Education grants for programs that will begin in late 2020 or early 2021. These grants are made possible by the generosity of donors who are committed to Education and Youth Programs in the Eastern Panhandle. This additional round of grants is being offered because of the increased demands being placed on nonprofit organizations and schools during the coronavirus pandemic. Grant awards will be recommended by specific fund committees and approved by the Community Foundation Board of Directors.

Founded in 1995 to benefit residents of Eastern West Virginia, EWVCF embraces the concept that people working together can make a difference. The Community Foundation seeks a common philosophy whereby people recognize, understand, and act upon the benefits philanthropy brings to our community. We build permanent endowments, offer maximum flexibility to our donors, meet high professional standards, promote effective and efficient grantmaking, and strengthen charitable organizations in our community.
