TGKVF Change Makers

Each year The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation honors organizations that are making positive changes in the communities we serve.

While all of our grantees show dedication and perseverance in the face of our region’s challenges, the organizations we highlight as Change Makers have exceeded our expectations in terms of innovations, resilience, and collaborative strategy.
