Since 1962, The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation (TGKVF) has supported a multitude of community efforts in areas such as 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 all converge for the purpose of promoting the well-being of Kanawha, Lincoln, Putnam, Fayette, Boone, and Clay Counties. TGKVF is one of the largest community foundations in the nation and the biggest community foundation in West Virginia and all of Central Appalachia. This report represents an attempt to understand the impact that TGKVF has had on the communities that it serves. Three sources of data are utilized for this purpose and the convergent themes that emerged from this review provide the strongest evidence.
