Apply for a Grant

The PACF works to meet the needs of the communities that we serve through our various grant programs.  Grants awarded through the Foundation are made possible by generous individuals/businesses who have established a charitable fund. Additionally, individuals who have established Donor Advised Funds through the PACF are consulted and some provide additional grant support to requests.

  • Community Action Grants Program:  The spring 2018 grant application deadline is February 15, 2018.
  •  Ruth Hornbrook Memorial Fund:  Fund provides support for humane societies in West Virginia, with particular emphasis on supporting the needs of new humane societies.  The application deadline is March 1, 2018.  
  • Special and Urgent Needs (SUN) Grants: SUN grants (up to $4,000) help organizations with unbudgeted, unforeseen, and time-sensitive emergencies or opportunities that arise from time to time and for which a quick response regarding Foundation support is necessary.  Requests can be submitted at any time to the Foundation's Senior Program Officer. 
  • Mini Grants:  Mini grants (up to $2,500) provide support for small projects that are time-sensitive.  Requests can be submitted at any time.
