Either the applicant or program to be funded must be located in the Foundationís eleven-county geographic service area (Calhoun, Doddridge, Gilmer, Jackson, Mason, Pleasants, Ritchie, Roane, Wirt counties in West Virginia, and Washington County, Ohio). Priority counties for Foundation grant support are: Calhoun, Doddridge, Gilmer, Ritchie, Roane, Wirt, and Wood counties.
The Foundation provides support for capital and equipment projects, program development, technical assistance, training, and capacity building projects, and, under special circumstances, operating support. Submitted applications are considered for support from a wide variety of grant funds available through the Foundation to support charitable projects throughout the region.
