Despite its label for being on the “philanthropic divide,” West Virginia’s nearly 30 community foundations are working to grow the state’s base of community philanthropy.

Philanthropy West Virginia will host its annual WV Community Foundations Gathering, “Planting Seeds of Prosperity,” at Stonewall Resort, sponsored by Huntington Bank.

“As leaders of West Virginia’s local and regional communities, community foundations are not just financial investors, but conveners, collaborators and partners who support local programs, organizations and citizens to improve our state’s quality of life,” said Philanthropy WV President and CEO Paul D. Daugherty. “As the state’s resource and advocate for philanthropy, our Annual Community Foundation Gathering brings together leaders for expert legal, grantmaking and leadership development, and this year we are pleased to showcase our first phase of facilitating West Virginia’s Transfer of Wealth assessment for 20 counties.”

Philanthropy WV is leading the “Transfer of Wealth” project to help private, public and independent sectors determine the state’s wealth potential and to implement strategies to ensure wealth stays in both rural and urban communities throughout the state.

“Community foundations make it possible for people from all walks of life to be a philanthropist, from the retired school teacher to the coal miner to the business entrepreneur who can create a permanent fund for their charitable interests and passions in their hometown and county,” Daugherty said.

Speakers and presenters for the June 26 event will include: Ahmet Binerer, senior associate director of community development for the Rural Policy Research Institute of Nebraska; Elaine Waterhouse Wilson, charities and tax law professor at the West Virginia University College of Law; Susie Nelson, executive director of the Community Foundation for the Ohio Valley and Jane Winters, regional manager of the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation and Regional Affiliates.
