Become a Friend of the Foundation

Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia has been bringing good people and good causes together for three decades. We are fortunate that many of these special people, our Friends, demonstrate each year that a good cause they care about is the Community Foundation. Our Friends understand that it takes time and financial resources to ensure that charitable organizations receive assistance in funds as well as technical expertise and that more donors find ways to use the Community Foundation to help the communities we serve.

Becoming a Friend of the Foundation is a great way to get involved! By making a tax deductible gift of $500 or more to our annual Operating Fund you will be recognized as a “Friend of the Foundation’ in our annual report, website, other publications, and at events.

Your gift will support:

  • Our continued efforts to market and communicate the value of charitable giving
  • Seminars and workshops for attorneys, CPA’s and other financial professionals emphasizing the role of planned giving in keeping our community strong
  • Annual scholarship reception recognizing many deserving young men and women pursuing their educational dreams
  • Our continued efforts to strengthen the local nonprofit organizations through technical assistance and capacity building.

Friends of the Foundation

We are honored to recognize donors who give annual administrative support to the Community Foundation in the amount of $500 or more as “Friends of the Foundation” for that fiscal year. The support of our “Friends” is vital to keeping the Foundation strong and vibrant as we work hard to make our communities even better places for all. Please note that for our Martinsville Regional Office Friends program, we use half of the gift to underwrite costs for the office and put half into our Martinsville Area Unrestricted Fund, to be used to meet important local needs and opportunities. We also use tiered recognition levels there as follows: Visionary $2,000 and above; Community Builder $1,500–$1,999; Ambassador $1,000–$1,499; and Partner $500–$999.
