Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation
The Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation provides support to nonprofit organizations and government agencies throughout the state of West Virginia and in southwestern Pennsylvania (Allegheny, Fayette, Greene, and Washington counties). The Foundation’s grant priorities for both geographic areas include the following: education, with a focus on academic achievement and preparation for the 21st-century workforce; and economic development, with emphasis on projects that promote technology-based development as well as the growth and accessibility of new capital for businesses in distressed communities and areas of high unemployment. In West Virginia only, the Foundation also provides grants in the areas of health and human services, and community development. Applications may be submitted throughout the year.
