Martinsville City, Henry and Patrick Counties

Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Martinsville City, Henry and Patrick County region has everything from breathtaking views of Nature and watersheds to the thrill of NASCAR racing.  Long a historical and leading center of both the textile and furniture industry, the communities here are filled with generous people who care deeply about the region, either because of long and deep family roots or having fallen in love with their new hometown after locating here.

Since 2005, The Community Foundation’s office in Martinsville has had the privilege of working closely with individuals, families, and corporations to match donor intent with community needs and opportunities, both to create deeper local impact and to build significant long-term resources through named charitable endowments.

Thank you notes are always appreciated, but some tug our heart strings more than others, like this patient's artwork. This year, the Earl L. and Ethel Y. Childers Fund of Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia awarded a generous grant to support the Shriners Hospital for Children in Greenville in updating their out-of-date videography system within their Motion Analysis Lab.

Grace Network of Martinsville & Henry County received a $5,000 grant from the Community Catalyst Fund to support its Crisis Nutritional Assistance Program.

“With the recent help from the Community Foundation, we are going to be able to feed approximately 100 families that are in crisis and unable to feed their children or themselves. These last two years have been particularly challenging as people faced more stress then they ever imagined with losing jobs, homeschooling and suffering with the illness of the pandemic. But, Grace Network has been here to help and will continue to be here to care for those that are struggling.” – Tracy Hinchcliff, Director

Spending time in nature has been proven to have many health benefits. Last year, Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia provided a grant of over $8,000 from the Community Catalyst Fund to support the Dan River Basin Association in creating the Riverside Family Area. This project is currently being built along the South Martinsville Dam River Access area and will provide opportunities for outdoor recreation to community members in the Martinsville region.
