Civic Leaders Fellowship Program
The Civic Leaders Fellowship Program provides summer employment opportunities and a program of civic leadership development for college students who reside in the Foundation’s service area. The program’s key goals are:
- To enhance students’ personal skills as well as to improve their ability to find meaningful employment in our region upon college graduation;
- To introduce area nonprofit organizations, government entities and businesses to students through the Fellows’ placement with their organizations; and,
- To offer a collaborative way for employers, nonprofits and foundations to work collectively to improve our region’s potential workforce for the future.
Part of a national day of giving called Give Local America, the Amazing Raise Ohio Valley is a 24-hour community-wide online fundraising event designed to help area nonprofits raise much-needed dollars and bring awareness to pressing needs in our communities. Hosted by the CFOV, the one-day event provides area nonprofits with increased exposure to potential new donors and helps them launch beneficial relationships.
