We are honored to be selected for The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation’s 2020 Change Maker Award in the community-economic development priority area.

In the annual State of the Foundation address, Dr. Michelle Foster, President and CEO of The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation, shared that these awards are given to “nonprofit partners who have exemplified innovation, resilience, and collaborative spirit.” We are joined by fellow awardees Kanawha County Schools in the health priority area and EnAct, Inc. in the education priority area.

The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation is an instrumental supporter of The Hub’s programming, helping us to create transformational impacts in partnership with community teams based in towns across the Kanawha Valley.

It matters to us, especially in this time, to have The Hub recognized in this way. It affirms the work we have been doing for the last 10 years and recommits us to continue that work for the next 10 years. Thank you.”
