CCDFGC Logic Model

Applicants may customize the inputs, activities, outputs, and outcomes sections of this logic model by adding their own elements in addition to selecting those relevant to CCDFGC.

Please note that CCDFGC-supported projects must benefit marginalized persons.


A giving circle is formed when a group of people come together to pool their money, decide where to give that money, and learn about needs in their community.

In addition to pooling money, members contribute their time and talents to significantly contribute to the causes they care about.

The C. C. Dickinson Family Giving Circle has established a Donor-Advised Fund with The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation.
