Beckley Area Foundation Inc.

The Beckley Area Foundation is very different from other philanthropic and nonprofit institutions. It is a charitable channel through which donors give.

The community foundation concept is as ingenious as it is simple—it is a means by which a substantial amount of money can be built over time from contributions both large and small, the income from which is used to meet the community’s charitable needs.
