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.

Application Process

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 grants process, 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.

For more information on the online registration process, please read the Applicant tutorial  or watch the Video tutorial.
