Since 1962, The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation (TGKVF) has supported a multitude of community efforts in arts and culture, health and human
services, community development, education, and recreation. Today, TGKVF acts as an intersection for public, private, and nonprofit organizations that
promote the well-being of Kanawha, Lincoln, Putnam, Fayette, Boone, and Clay County residents. TGKVF, one of the largest community foundations in the
nation, with over 500 funds and $221 million in assets, is the biggest community foundation in West Virginia and all of Central Appalachia.
This report uses county-level indicators as well as quantitative and qualitative information from grantees to create profiles of the communities served and
to assess TGKVF’s impact on them.
