Learn more about the host of Give Local MOV

Parkersburg Area Community Foundation & Regional Affiliates (PACF) is excited to host Give Local MOV on Tuesday, May 2, 2023! Since the founding of this giving day in 2014, our community has raised more than $2 million for our region's nonprofit organizations.

While Give Local MOV is a special day, the PACF continues to work hard the other 364 days out of the year to strengthen its 11-county service area (Calhoun, Doddridge, Gilmer, Jackson, Mason, Pleasants, Ritchie, Roane, Wirt, and Wood counties in West Virginia, and Washington County, Ohio).  As a community foundation dedicated to our region, the PACF collaborates with donors to address critical needs in our community and grow philanthropy in our area.

With support from our generous donors, the PACF awards grants to local causes and organizations with missions supporting animals; arts and culture; community improvement; education; environment; health; human services; and youth development.  And also awards scholarships to area students. Last year, the Foundation awarded more than $3.3 million in grants and scholarships. 

The Foundation is committed to improving our collective future by inspiring philanthropy and connecting people with opportunities to make a meaningful difference; engaging citizens to address key issues; and delivering results that matter for the people of our area</span></p>
