The Parkersburg Area Community Foundation and Regional Affiliates (PACF) is once again making an investment in our region by providing $243,171 in grant support to area nonprofits. A reception was held at the Foundation’s office on Wednesday, May 15 to highlight the grant recipients and the good work they are doing in the community.
"We had a really strong, and also diverse, pool of grant applicants this cycle,” said Marian Clowes, PACF Associate Director for Community Leadership. “When I look at the grants we have awarded, the word that keeps coming to my mind is service. Our grantees are all deeply dedicated to serving our community and especially to serving those in need.”
Through the Foundation’s bi-annual Community Action Grants Program, area nonprofits seek grant assistance to address organizational needs and programs. To be considered for a Community Action Grant, an applicant must be a private, nonprofit organization, tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or a public institution. Either the applicant or program to be funded must be located in the Foundation’s eleven-county geographic service area (Calhoun, Doddridge, Gilmer, Jackson, Mason, Pleasants, Ritchie, Roane, Wirt, and Wood counties in West Virginia, and Washington County, Ohio). Submitted applications are considered for support from charitable funds managed by the Foundation that are designed to support a wide variety of projects and causes throughout the region.
