On the Menu – September 21, 2021
Our next and final installment of our current “On the Menu” series will take place through Zoom on September 21, 2021 from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
We’re partnering with Candid to host a series of six courses that will explore different elements of grants and related processes, with a special emphasis on using Candid’s tools that are available for use here at CFOV!
The next topic is Introduction to Corporate Giving and we hope you’ll join us for this NO COST learning opportunity!
Corporate grantmakers are different from traditional foundations in many ways. This class provides a basic overview of:
- The different types of corporate giving
- What motivates corporations to give
- How to find potential corporate partners
- Defining different types of corporate philanthropy and their motivations.
- Learning how to find information about different types of corporate philanthropy.
One of the most important features of a community foundation is the money it is able to distribute or direct back to the community each year and over time. In our most recent fiscal year, the funds of the Community Foundation returned over $3.1 million dollars to the non-profit community in the Upper Ohio Valley including Hancock, Brooke, Marshall, Ohio, Tyler and Wetzel counties in West Virginia and Belmont and Jefferson counties in Ohio.

CFOV has transitioned our grant application process to an online format. Applicants will need to create a username/password to access our applications. To avoid duplicate accounts for one organization, please check to see if someone in your organization has already created an account. If you are not sure, please contact us and we will check for you. Once you login to our online grant portal, the “apply” page will only show grant programs which are currently accepting applications. If there are no processes currently accepting applications, there will not be a link to apply.
Once available, you can preview the grant applications here, without needing a login.
