A designated fund is established by a donor to benefit a specific charity, or program for a charity. Since the first designated fund was established in 1986, BAF has been telling stories of donors and helping local organizations create new stories each year. To date, over $6.5 million dollars has been distributed from designated funds.
The City of Beckley's annual designated distribution was $18,046, made possible by three different funds that have been designated to support their efforts:
“The City of Beckley is once again so appreciative of the foresight of those whose names identify the BAF named funds that enhance our future. This year's Ralsten, Shoemaker and Flying Eagle fund distributions total $18,046 and will be used to further the desired causes.”
— Robert Rappold | Mayor, City of Beckley
Over the next week, BAF will be diving into five more organizations (found in bold letters below) to highlight their service to the community, and which designated funds support them each year.
BAF distributed $425,677 to 64 organizations in our area from designated funds for 2022-2023. The grant awards are as follows:
