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.

According to the National Association of Mental Illness, one in five Americans has a mental illness, and only 40% of those receive treatment. Here in the Roanoke Valley, Bradley Free Clinic’s behavioral health program has seen an unprecedented increase in the demand for mental health services.

Paced by a visionary grant out of the William and Margaret Robertson Family Fund, and with additional grants from The Roanoke Women's Foundation Fund, Thomas P. and Lewise S. Parsley Fund, and Community Catalyst Funds (all Funds administered by the Community Foundation), Bradley Free Clinic has broken ground on a new Robertson Behavioral Health Wing that will be comprised of six counseling rooms and a group counseling space.

We look forward to seeing the grand opening in Spring 2022! To learn more visit bradleyfreeclinic.com/robertson-behavioral-health-wing/
