Welcome to Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia!

We could list a dazzling array of facts and figures here about our strong and continued asset growth and our many years of life-changing grant making, but those can be found elsewhere on this site. In this space, our purpose is to simply say we enable generous people like you to easily give back to the community you love. Whether that community is the Roanoke Valley, the Martinsville-Henry County area, the Alleghany Highlands or other parts of Western Virginia, we stand ready to serve you. You will discover that incorporating the community foundation option into your lifetime charitable giving and your estate plans will prove rewarding while being flexible and effective in its execution, tax-wise in its benefits, and permanent in carrying on your philanthropic legacy.
