Education Funders Planning Session

November 6, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - November 7, 2018 @ 10:00 am

Join Philanthropy West Virginia’s Education Funders Affinity Group (EAG) as we gear up to make more critical changes in WV Education with our members. At any age, what and how a student learn in school has a ripple affect on their peers, teachers, families, and communities. Sometimes, individual efforts aren’t enough to make a significant impact. During the EAG Planning Session, consultant Miriam Shark will take us through common areas of funding interests among EAG members and larger education funders. Together, participants will shape the direction of the EAG:

  • What areas of education will be pursued for collaboration
  • What national funders to approach to increase funding in West Virginia
  • How participants plan to take action
Hear from our President & CEO, Paul D. Daugherty, on the history of the      EAG and the benefits of participating in the EAG Planning Session.




NOW is the time to get involved with the EAG if you have any interest in education funding! We will be hearing from Assistant Superintendent, Dr. Jan Barth, of the WV Board of Education to kick off our event on November 6th! She will take us through areas of education that are in serious need of attention.

Help our teachers and students; join the Education Funders and shape the future.
