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.

Good Samaritan Hospice was awarded a $20,000 grant from Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia’s Marion S. and Willie Z. Camp Fund for Eldercare to support its Palliative Care Program.

Good Samaritan's home-based palliative care program serves some of the community’s most vulnerable residents, especially those living with a serious illness who are homebound and do not have access to quality health care. Palliative care partners with physicians' offices, hospitals, and home health agencies to help people manage their care at home, avoid unwanted emergency room visits and hospitalizations, and enjoy enhanced quality of life.

Happy first day of summer! We hope you get outside to enjoy the summer sunshine, and maybe even treat yourself to a trip to a local Farmer’s Market, like the Uptown Martinsville Farmers' Market, to pick up some healthy and delicious food grown in our very own community!
