The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation

As part of its participation in the Ford Foundation-funded WealthWorks project, The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation recently restructured its entire grantmaking program to focus on projects supporting the creation of multiple forms of local wealth—reflecting its effort to take a systems approach to community change. Rather than making only reactive grants, the foundation has embarked on a more proactive approach to grantmaking. It is also running its own pilot project in building community wealth, working to connect small produce growers with a large hospital anchor buyer. The foundation titled its 2014 annual report, “Wealth Created Here.”
