As West Virginia’s leading voice and premiere resource for philanthropy, Philanthropy West Virginia is committed to helping its members fulfill their charitable goals.  It does so by providing opportunities for trustees and staff to network, build skills, enhance knowledge and demonstrate leadership. Philanthropy WV is the forum for funders to exchange information, discuss common interests, learn about relevant issues, hone their grantmaking skills and establish networks of important relationships across the state.  Through its programs and services, Philanthropy WV helps funders become more efficient, effective grantmakers.

Philanthropy WV members include private and family foundations, community foundations, corporate foundations and giving programs, health funders and other types of grantmakers. Philanthropy WV also works to build and maintain relationships with other key stakeholders in the field, including media outlets and public policy makers among others.

We are one of 32 associations across the nation that work to promote philanthropy. These associations work very closely with one another to ensure our members have the best available resources from coast to coast.

Our BIGGEST Thank you to the Dominion Foundation for investing in our digital platform to host this newly designed website. Your investment is providing us with a new way to reach our members and better serve West Virginia!
