We support area nonprofits in three ways:
- Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are able to offer grants to selected nonprofits through an annual Grant Cycle. We welcome grant applications from qualified nonprofit organizations whose mission is to meet needs in Shenandoah County and surrounding areas that fall within our established Priority areas.
- We manage endowments for many area nonprofits, alleviating those organizations’ responsibility for administration and investment decisions. Some were established by the nonprofits themselves, while others were established by donors wishing to support their favorite church or charity. Their listing on our website and literature offers the potential for gifts from additional donors.
- As the Foundation grows, we will increase our services and support to area nonprofits to help them increase their capacity to fulfill their missions by serving the needs of Shenandoah county and surrounding areas.
As we visit donors and potential donors in our community, we listen to their philanthropic interests and strive to connect them with whichever organizations most closely resonates with these interests. This ongoing effort is reflected in our tagline:
