On June 21, 2018, the Beckley Area Foundation held its first ever GrantSeekers event at the Historic Black Knight Municipal Park. This was a new event designed to bring the Foundation's Donor Advised Fund representatives and local non-profit organizations together.
The event was created to show donors about the current projects of local organizations that were in need of funding and to encourage grant making. However, an unexpected result occurred. Many of the non-profit leaders told us that this event gave them a networking opportunity with other non-profits in the area that they previously had not interacted with.
A big thank you to all of our donors and non-profits that participated. We look forward to hosting this event again in the future!
