People establish permanent endowments at our community foundation for many reasons, and one of the most popular of those is creating a lasting memorial for a friend, loved one or cherished institution. The knowledge that these endowed funds are permanent and will generate income that fulfills the worthwhile charitable intent of the donor makes the donation even more appealing. Over half of the permanent endowments managed by the Foundation serve as memorials to family members, friends, and public servants.
BAF accepts memorial gifts in any amount; donations may be made to the general discretionary funds or any of the named funds. If you desire BAF to be your “Memory Keeper,” call 304-253-3806 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Beckley Area Foundation is a 501-c-3 non-profit community charity as recognized by the Internal Revenue Service, and all donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
