Non-profit organizations are the economic and community development that builds stronger communities, neighborhoods and economies. We believe that these non-profits have an important leverage point and cultivate vibrant communities by connecting people with skills, information, and services that are needed to make a living and a life.

The Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation is one of approximately 700 community foundations across the country — and one of 23 serving the citizens of West Virginia.
Community Foundations are set up by local leaders working with individuals, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and families dedicated to improving the quality of life in a specific region. We serve Jefferson, Berkeley, and Morgan Counties. Our affiliates serve Hampshire and Hardy Counties.
We are a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) public charity that allows donors to establish charitable endowment funds within one large foundation, offering an affordable, value-added way to be a philanthropist. Depending on the type of fund crafted by a donor, annual distributions (from investment gains) can benefit local nonprofit organizations, charitable causes, scholarships, churches or government agencies.
