Philanthropy West Virginia is proud to partner with these four leaders in philanthropy and grantmaking. Each organization has its own realm of national or regional expertise.

United Philanthropy Forum leads, strengthens and informs a national network of nearly 75 regional and national philanthropy-serving organizations (PSOs) that advance philanthropy’s impact for the common good. The Forum envisions a courageous philanthropic sector that catalyzes a just and equitable society where all can participate and prosper.

West Virginia Nonprofit Association strengthens the nonprofit sector by fostering a collective voice and providing mission-focused resources. The WVNPA officially spun out from Philanthropy West Virginia as of April 1, 2018. We are proud that they continue to do great work in our state.

Independent Sector

Independent Sector is the only national membership organization that brings together a diverse set of nonprofits, foundations, and corporations to advance the common good. IS advocates for public policies that impact the charitable sector, builds knowledge on behalf of the sector, and connects the hard-working organizations and leaders within the sector.

Grantmakers for Education is the largest forum in education philanthropy, with nearly 300 strong and diverse organizations introducing bold thinking and brave ideas to learners across America. GFE believes that striving for racial justice and equity is essential across philanthropy, education and society.

The National Center for Family Philanthropy is a network of philanthropic families committed to a world that is vibrant, equitable, and resilient. We share proven practices, work through common challenges, and learn together to strengthen our ability to effect meaningful change. As we navigate individual journeys of reflection and transformation, we see the results of intentional, impactful giving.
