Despite these trying times, the generosity demonstrated by Ohio Valley residents continues to shine. The Emergency Impact Fund has grown through contributions from individuals, fund advisors, corporations, private foundations and friends of philanthropy.

The Emergency Impact Fund serves as a convenient and easy way for donors to extend support to organizations contributing to the strength of our communities. The effects of these unprecedented times will continue well into the future and Emergency Impact Fund grants will be available as funding permits.

As a community foundation, CFOV supports those in its footprint through a variety of tools – some provide support over time and others are more immediate. The Emergency Impact Fund represents both – a true product of support for the community from the community when times are tough.
