Dental Health and Emergency Aid

Dental Health and Emergency Aid

Thanks to the generous support of an anonymous donor, The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation has funding to support grants for Emergency Aid and Dental Needs in TGKVF’s service area. 

Please contact a Program Officer before submitting a Project Summary.

 These grants are made quarterly if funding allows. 

Use of Funds

Emergency Aid:

    • To provide direct assistance to low-income residents with emergency utility, rent, food, or prescription needs
    • To provide direct assistance to homeless individuals that need general assistance and/or demonstrate a willingness to move into permanent or transitional housing
    • To provide direct assistance to families and individuals impacted by natural disaster
    • To provide emergency repairs to buildings or mechanical systems (heating/cooling, water service, etc.) of which the sudden and unexpected failure interferes with the nonprofit organization’s provision of services
    • To replace essential equipment and technology of which the sudden and unexpected failure interferes with the nonprofit organization’s provision of services
    • To provide services or obtain a resource that could not have been anticipated or budgeted for (for example, due to public crisis, including SUD epidemic) and which the nonprofit organization’s work will be severely hampered
  • * The emergency aid funding is for unbudgeted, unforeseen, and time-sensitive emergencies that require quick granting action to address a community problem or situation that needs immediate attention. This funding is not to compensate for unmet revenue projections, budget deficits, work that is already completed, deferred building or technology maintenance or upgrades, or debts
