There are many people and organizations inside and outside of Wyoming County who would be interested in donating money and assets to worthy Wyoming County projects and programs. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been a central trusted avenue for them to use.
To answer this need, Wyoming County Planning Commission created the Wyoming County Community Fund. Several tax-deductible funds have been set up giving donors flexibility in how their contributions are used.
Funds can be directed to the Unrestricted Fund, Children’s Fund, Parks and Recreation Fund, Scholarship Fund, Arts Fund, Cemetery Fund, the Administrative Fund or the Donor Advised Fund.
The Wyoming County Community Fund is made possible by the Beckley Area Foundation (BAF) who manages the funds and acts as an umbrella non-profit organization that ensures the WCCF complies with IRS regulations and enables all donations to be tax deductible.
Professionally managed Funds
Flexibility to invest cash, securities, real estate, personal property, life insurance and bequests
Only 1% of no administrative donations go to overhead
Donations can be made in your name, the name of someone you designate or anonymously
