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.

Botetourt Resource Center has provided programs and direct support to seniors for over 20 years. In 2022, the Community Foundation granted $35,000 from the Marion S. and Willie Z. Camp Fund for Eldercare to Botetourt Resource Center to ensure its ability to continue its vital programs and services which foster purpose and well-being for economically vulnerable older adults. With grant funding, the Center was able to offer socialization opportunities, offset the financial burden of utility and medical bills as well as cover the cost of home repairs, such as adding a handicap ramp.

Let us help distract you from the winter blues and turn your thoughts toward spring planting! In 2022, the Community Foundation granted Dan River Basin Association $1,000 from the Community Impact Funds to support its Planting Seeds of Change for Youth initiative. DRBA used this funding, in partnership with Albert Harris Elementary, to create raised bed gardens in the school for students to grow their own vegetables. The students later harvested the veggies and had the opportunity to taste what they had grown.
