Key Facts about YCF:
Two charitable, non-profit foundations, the Community Foundation of North Central West Virginia (CFNCWV) and the Greater Morgantown Community Trust (GMCT), have combined into a larger, more effective organization named Your Community Foundation (YCF).
The merged foundation manages assets and pledged assets of more than $12 million and administers more than 160 endowment funds across the north-central counties of the state.
The new, larger YCF continues to encourage, create, market and manage endowment funds originated by individuals, families, businesses and organizations throughout the area.
YCF invests these donated funds to increase their value, and distributes the net earnings from those investments to deserving recipients, as specified by the donors, in the form of scholarships and grants.
At YCF, we seek to develop, promote and coordinate charitable giving for the good of the community. Through our human and financial resources, we are able to extend many forms of assistance to qualified people, programs and projects. YCF’s underlying goal is always to enhance the quality of life for those we serve.
In addition, we are continually gathering information and the expertise to effectively achieve the goals of our charitable donors as they seek to fund their passion.
