Through a collection of funds, YCF fosters greater giving and volunteerism, builds endowments to ensure that grants are always available, and works hand-in-hand with thousands of local residents and donors to address our region's pressing challenges and most promising opportunities.
Hundreds of people have trusted our organization with their hearts and donations. Whether it's supporting education or athletics, the homeless or the arts, a new animal shelter or a clean environment . . . there's no end to the good we can do.
The 30-by-50-foot Marion County Patriot American Flag now flies atop a 125-foot pole overlooking I-79 in Fairmont. A dedication ceremony was held on Flag Day with local citizens and dignitaries in attendance. The tallest flagpole in the area is part of the Korean War Memorial being built at the East Marion County Park. Contributions are still needed to purchase and maintain replacement flags. This flag will be a symbol of local pride and patriotism that people will be able to see, night and day, for many, many years to come.
YCF needs help to match two separate donations that would benefit deserving individuals in the area. First United Bank & Trust and other private donors have offered $4,000 for the Empty Bowls Endowment Fund, provided that YCF can acquire a matching amount of contributions from the community. The fund helps to feed the hungry in Monongalia County. In addition, the Mon General Hospital Foundation Board has approved a transfer of $20,000 to YCF for the benefit of Milan Puskar Health Right, subject to a matching $20,000 being raised by YCF.
The Black Heritage Festival Foundation has joined with other area non-profit groups and Bob Evans Restaurants to create a permanent endowment fund managed by Your Community Foundation (YCF). The fund was started with a $5,000 donation from West Virginia Grantmakers, made available under the “Building Donor Diversity” challenge grant program. Visit our “funds” page for a fact sheet with more information.
A new fund has been established through Your Community Foundation (YCF) to build and erect a statue of Col. Zackquill Morgan, an early settler in the region, veteran of the Revolutionary War and founder of the city of Morgantown. The fund committee has commissioned prestigious sculptor Jamie Lester to create the statue, which will be located at the Hazel Ruby McQuain Riverfront Park and Amphitheater. Lester is best-known locally for creating the Jerry West monument at the WVU Coliseum.
