The River Valley Health Foundation is pleased to announce its Nov. 1, 2021 annual grant deadline. The grant application and relevant guidelines can be located on the Foundation’s website, https://rivervalleyhf.org/application-faq/. The typical award is between $1000 and $5000. While it is rare that the Foundation will award more than $10,000, all requests will be considered.

Any 501(c)(3) non-profit that is not a private foundation located in Brooke, Ohio, Marshall and Wetzel counties in West Virginia and Belmont, Jefferson, Monroe, Guernsey, and Harrison counties in Ohio are invited to apply. All applicants should keep in mind the Foundation’s mission of improving the health and well-being of the residents of the Ohio Valley.    

In recent years, the Foundation previously funded non-emergency medical transportation, dental and direct healthcare for uninsured and underinsured, the purchase and installation of a local playground’s shade structure, healthcare camps, healthcare-related scholarships, costs associated with rotation doctor housing, and COVID-related health needs to local health departments. 

Furthermore, if you wish to donate to the Foundation to help us address significant health and wellness needs in our community, you can donate online at https://rivervalleyhf.org/donate-now-2/ or by mailing a check to 1226 Chapline Street, Wheeling, WV 26003. 

Additionally, the Foundation will be hosting a fundraiser on Oct. 16, 2021 at the Capitol Theatre in downtown Wheeling. All proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the 2021 Foundation’s grant awards.  The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and we will conclude with a live auction featuring such items as a Pittsburgh vintage shopping trip, a high-end bourbon tasting, a plane ride of Wheeling including lunch, and a craft beer dinner event.  You can purchase tickets on etix.com by searching for Capitol Theatre (https://www.etix.com/ticket/p/4776695/an-evening-with-the-river-valley-health-foundation-wheeling-the-capitol-theatre) or by calling 412-298-2423.
