In the spring of this year the Little Kanawha Area Community Foundation, an affiliate of the Parkersburg Community Foundation, partnered with community matching sponsors to offer a unique challenge opportunity to local donors to Build a Fund Your Community.

The challenge program encouraged individual, business or nonprofit donors to build a permanent local fund to improve the community in Wirt, Calhoun and Gilmer counties.

Having started a support fund with the local foundation in 2013, the Minnie Hamilton System's board of directors decided to take advantage of the matching opportunity to build its support fund.
