COVID-19 Relief Funds

Knowing where and how to donate during times of crisis can be daunting.  It is easy to give to a crowdfunding campaign, but hard to know where your donations end up.  Philanthropy WV wants to help you support those impacted by COVID-19 by supplying a list of emergency response funds (see below).  We will be updating this list as we learn more about charitable responses to COVID-19 around the state. If you know of a fund that should be listed here, please email Kate Leary at operationsassistant@philanthropywv.org
