Dear Friends,

We have met the future and it is us.

That’s Ann and me shown, back in 1963, the year in which the Foundation began. As we were growing up, a small handful of people in Parkersburg gathered to give life to a charitable institution that would be built to thrive for all times. The organization for which they laid the cornerstone on October 18, 1963, has come to benefit their fellow citizens for decades in ways that they could only imagine at the time. Fifty years later, the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation has changed in many ways. That’s a good thing. Evidence of change is proof of life. To be alive means to demonstrate the capacity to sense, to learn, to adapt and to grow. Growth requires change. Our organization is constantly gathering knowledge and gaining experience. We use that informed perspective to improve how the Foundation serves our region. Our goal is to ensure that the Foundation will continue to be as relevant for the people of tomorrow as it is for our generation today. As needs and times will change, tomorrow’s Foundation cannot be the same as today’s. Yet, the values at the heart of our community foundation will remain ever-present—generosity, openness, excellence, inclusiveness, innovation and resourcefulness.

During this Fiftieth Anniversary year, we have marveled at all of the goodness and initiative displayed across our region. All that our communities enjoy now is a tribute to the efforts and resources given by those in the generations that preceded us.

It’s our turn to step up now. We invite you to join your hands to this wonderful work. Our first 50 years have provided us with a solid start. To quote from Browning on behalf of the Foundation as we bring on the next 50 years,

“Come grow old with me, the best is yet to be!”

THE LEGACY SOCIETY On October 18, 1963, five caring people stepped forward to make their community a better place, holding the first Parkersburg Community Foundation** Board meeting. With their actions, that small group of concerned citizens launched a community foundation that continues to be a work in progress with the ongoing help of many, many generous people. As each person adds his or her part to the Foundation, the outlook for our region becomes more hopeful and vibrant. Today, building “Our Community’s Foundation” means working together to cultivate a regional enterprise, the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation (PACF) and each of the Regional Affiliate Community Foundation organizations of Doddridge (DCCF), Jackson (JCCF), Mason (MCCF), Ritchie (RCCF) and the Little Kanawha Area (LKACF) Counties. Legacy Society membership is honorary; it’s our way to say “thank you” to those thoughtful citizens who make a personal commitment to brighten our community’s future through a planned gift to the Foundation; a bequest in one’s will, a charitable lead or remainder trust, or a gift of life insurance, for example.

Gary McIntyre’s Legacy Society commitment will ensure that the Actors Guild can thrive.

Too often, the recognition for these types of gifts comes at the close Society Member Diane Ludwig (LKACF) wants to do of one’s life. Accepting our offer of membership in the Legacy Society her best for future generations. now allows us to honor and thank donors during their lifetimes for their commitment to our area. Participation in the Legacy Society also inspires others to look toward the future and to consider how they too can make an enduring impact on the causes about which they care. Please help improve the outlook for the causes and organizations that are important to you by including a gift to the Foundation in your estate plans. If you have made such provisions, please advise us so that we may offer you our deep appreciation and the honor of membership in the Legacy Society. Your membership is a priceless gift to the people of our area that will last for all time.

Our competitive Community Action Grants program meets local needs by funding vital projects in our service region in the fields of Arts and Culture, Education, Health and Human Services, Community and Economic Development, Youth and Family Services, and Recreation. Our service region is: Calhoun, Doddridge, Gilmer, Jackson, Mason, Ritchie, Roane, Pleasants, Wirt and Wood Counties (WV) and Washington County (OH). Three types of Community Action Grants are available:

1. Operating Support Grants – help organizations to meet critical community needs by supplying resources for general operations, enabling organizations to respond to financial or organizational growth challenges.

2. Program Development and Capacity Building/Training Grants – support new programs or services; expand existing programs to meet emerging needs; or provide training and resources to strengthen organizational capacity.

3. Capital and Equipment Grants – deliver funds for building construction or renovation, equipment purchases or other capital needs.

We use a coordinated regional process to make Community Action Grants twice each year. Applications are accepted online with deadlines in March and September. Please see the Grants Section on our website www.pacfwv.com for more details about the grants process, guidelines or to access the online application.

Please direct all questions about grants, regardless of your location, to our Program Officer in the Foundation’s Central Office at info@pacfwv.com, 304.428.4438.

We know how much people care so we set our standards high. The Parkersburg Area Community Foundation, Inc. (including its affiliate organizations) is recognized by the Council on Foundations as meeting its National Standards. We voluntarily submitted to an extensive evaluation by professionals in our field to ensure compliance with the Council’s highest standards. It is our way of assuring our community that its gifts are handled with integrity and professionalism.

The accompanying notes are an integral part of these financial statements. FY 2012-2013 Annual4Report / Page 15 of 20

VISION OF OUR COMMUNITY’S FOUNDATION Our Foundation will hold a vital role in our region supporting people who work together to build resources and apply leadership, creating a better place for citizens today and tomorrow. This section features the community-building work of the Regional Affiliate organizations of the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation (PACF), Inc. An affiliate benefits a specific geographic area by developing charitable funds dedicated for its own local interests while operating in partnership with a community foundation that holds tax-exempt status for the whole. Choosing affiliation provides a significant and regional economy of scale for administrative and investment services for all partners while freeing local leaders to focus on fund development and grant making. Through our collective enterprise, our organization can serve as our region’s Center for Philanthropy and by focusing on what’s best for our collective community so much more becomes possible for all of us.

Doddridge County Community Foundation (DCCF)

West Union Bank and a generous Doddridge County High School alumnus launched the “Doddridge County Education Challenge” to build the county’s Education Foundation Fund. This fund provides grants to improve the County’s academic programs and facilities. “DCCF’s volunteers are also working to build partnerships with the oil and gas companies that are active in our area’s shale development and to secure lasting contributions for our community’s well-being. DCCF partnered with EQT and Dominion this year, receiving community development grants for the major West Union Streetscape Project,” said Tom Whaling, DCCF’s Advisory Board Chair.

EQT officials present a $25,000 grant to DCCF to assist with the West Union Streetscape Project.

Jackson County Community Foundation (JCCF)

Just after the fiscal year close, JCCF celebrated the arrival of a $2 million legacy gift from the estate of Legacy Society member, Mrs. Helen Lester. Named for the former Ripley pharmacy owners, the new Bob and Helen Lester Community Fund will forever provide unrestricted funding for Ripley area needs and projects in the couple’s memory. According to Carla Parsons, JCCF Advisory Board Chair, “JCCF had a great year! In addition to receiving the Lesters’ bequest, we produced the 11th annual Charity Challenge Matching Program, raising $146,000 for 19 local nonprofits; partnered with the Dickirson Corporation for a third year of arts and education programs in Jackson County Schools, with Grammy Award winner Kathy Mattea in 2013; and announced the new West Virginia Heroes Fund for arts in education at our major community celebration featuring Kathy Mattea and former Governor Gaston Caperton.”

Hundreds of people turned out to hear Kathy Mattea talk about how the arts inspire us, including the Hon. Gaston Caperton, who addressed the crowd. A combined choir of Ravenswood and Ripley High School students provided musical entertainment. Photo Credit: Ann Nester Photography

Little Kanawha Area Community Foundation (LKACF) For a second year, LKACF leaders conducted the Little Kanawha Area Community Challenge Program applying a lead gift from Calhoun Banks to encourage matching contributions. Volunteers worked to build local community grant and scholarship funds for the three county service area of Calhoun, Gilmer and Wirt. “We were pleased to add $4,600 in donations to our funds through a successful Challenge Program. LKACF also established the Marbie McCartney Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund. Created by the McCartney family, this new fund will serve as a legacy to Mrs. Smith’s good works by providing scholarships each year in her memory for Calhoun County High School seniors pursuing higher education,” according to LKACF Advisory Board Chair Jim Bennett.

Mrs. Hartshorn’s Wirt County High School Introduction to Business Class operated a Holiday Business—“TANGLED Tinsel”—with the proceeds supporting the Little Kanawha Area Scholarship Fund.

Mason County Community Foundation (MCCF) The third annual Spirit of Our Community Program held this year in partnership with the Point Pleasant Register generated $12,500 for local grant and scholarship funds. This event shines a spotlight on outstanding community leaders, and business and community service organizations that are working to improve Mason County. MCCF Advisory Board Chair Mario Liberatore said, “The Spirit Program sponsorship funds are earmarked for honorariums in the Spirit Award winners’ names to build our Mason County Community Grant, Fund for Youth, Arts and Education, and MCCF Scholarship Funds. This unique program gives MCCF a wonderful way to highlight community leaders while growing local permanent philanthropic resources to address critical needs and improve the quality of life locally.” Created in 2004, MCCF has grown dramatically in nine short years, wrapping up this fiscal year with assets at $4 million.

Ritchie County Community Foundation (RCCF) “With community fund assets of nearly $1.5 million, the Ritchie County Community Foundation continues to enjoy steady growth and to improve our capacity to meet local needs,” said RCCF Advisory Board Chair Russell Rogerson. This past year RCCF awarded $7,500 in community grants from the Ritchie County Community

Mario Liberatore presents a grant from the Jackson Foundation of MCCF to a Fort Randolph representative.

Grant Fund, new Harrisville Civic Club Improvement Fund, Lowell and Wilda Jackson Community Fund and Senator Frank Deem’s gift of community funds to address a wide variety of programs from health to education. Sixteen Ritchie County High School graduates received $24,200 in scholarship aid from 14 permanently endowed scholarship funds to assist with college expenses. “We are thrilled to be able to provide annual support for both community grants and scholarships. This year, plans are underway to launch a community challenge program to expand our community grant funds so that we can build a stronger local support system for the future needs of our community,” announced Rogerson.
