The KVCOP, revitalized from the previous Community Grantmakers Association, was established to serve as an opportunity for convening funders to learn about the Kanawha Valley community, to share information and knowledge, to leverage and maximize resources, and to expand potential strategies for making more effective grants.

The KVCOP’s Guidelines include goals, objectives, methods, administrative support, membership, and indicators of success. Its three task forces include: Membership, “New Buckets” (leveraging of dollars), and Program.

The KVCOP is now accepting invited applications for the 2018 calendar year. All applicants must first submit a Letter of Intent to no later than February 9, 2018 by 5:00pm. A grants committee will review the Letters of Intent and then select those applicants they wish to complete a full application. The KVCOP does not accept unsolicited applications.
