Chevron Partners With CFOV For Strategic Grantmaking in Marshall County

The Community Foundation for the Ohio Valley today announced a partnership with Chevron for the purpose of strategic grantmaking in Marshall County, WV.

Chevron is contributing $50,000 to establish the Chevron Fund, to be managed by the Community Foundation.  The Fund primarily will be focused on providing grants to non-profit organizations that are located in and or substantially serve Marshall County, West Virginia.  Applications will be vetted by CFOV staff and then forwarded to Chevron officials for their grant recommendations.

“Chevron will be operating in this region for decades, and we are committed to improving the social and economic well-being of the communities in which we operate,” said Bruce Niemeyer, Vice President of Chevron’s Appalachian/Michigan Business Unit.  “The Chevron Fund of the Community Foundation for the Ohio Valley will focus on providing support for organizations that share our company’s social investment focus areas of STEM education, workforce development, and health care.”

The Chevron Fund will hold two grant cycles in the spring and the fall.  The fund will award half of the available funds per cycle and recipients can receive a maximum of $10,000 per grant application.  Grant applications are due back by October 31, 2013, at 5:00 p.m.  Chevron Grant Request Summary and Guidelines 2013
