Snowshoe Foundation

Enhancing the Quality of Life in our Local Communities

The Mission of the Snowshoe Foundation is to elevate the quality of life in central West Virginia. Our mandate is to provide financial support to local community organizations whose activities benefit residents living in Pocahontas, Webster, and Randolph Counties. We are a compassionate organization that seeks to enhance life in our region, while making our mountain communities better places to live for all. We are proud to uphold the shared values that reflect our character. The Snowshoe Foundation embraces the following values and principles we hold most dear: Philanthropy, Integrity, Stewardship, Community, and Hope!

We have two grant cycles, one large in the spring for grants over $10,000 and one in the fall for amounts between $250 and $10,000. We also offer scholarships for career and technical education. Every fall, we work with local fire departments to distribute smoke detectors to every kindergartner in our three country region and promote fire safety. Every December, we hold our Dave Dekema Toy Drive, raising money in the memory of a wonderful man who wanted to bring joy to the children of our area.
