Critical Partnerships for West Virginia’s Future

With the historic transition of executive and legislative leadership in West Virginia, it is critical, now more than ever, that nonprofits and foundations come together to establish relationships with the new leadership for West Virginia’s future.

Join us for the 3rd Annual Joint Policy Institute hosted by Philanthropy WV and the WV Nonprofit Association. We invite nonprofit and private, family, corporate, and community foundation leaders to attend to connect with West Virginia’s new leadership.
