Since 1963, the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation & Regional Affiliates has served as a model of grantmaking and philanthropic giving in our region. The Foundation manages many separate charitable funds established by caring citizens to improve our local quality of life and to help address key community issues. Thanks to this partnership, the Foundation has been able to award millions of dollars in grant support to our region's regional nonprofit organizations and programs.
