Giving Well Family Fund

Giving Well Family Fund

The donors who established the Giving Well Family Fund are sharing their luck.

The years they’ve spent farming their land in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains have required a lot of work but also offered them a great deal of serenity. They’ve had a few lucky breaks on their farm, too, which helped them generate the capital for the Giving Well Family Fund. They want to share their luck with others in the Appalachian countryside.

What does the Giving Well Family Fund support?

The Giving Well Family Fund provides grants to support projects in Carroll, Harrison, Jefferson, and Tuscarawas counties. Projects may include, but are not limited to, infrastructure or one-time construction projects that will create a lasting impact and community benefit.
