Since 1989, the West Virginia Children’s Trust Fund (WV CTF) has provided support to innovative programs helping promote healthy and happy childhoods statewide.

The initiatives we fund are founded upon these central beliefs:

  • that every child deserves to grow up in a safe, stable, and nurturing environment,
  • that the well-being of West Virginia children and communities go hand-in-hand, and
  • that all of us have a responsibility to make sure kids in our communities are safe and happy.

From the first-time mother to the homeroom teacher, from the coach on the field to the next-door neighbor, from the church down the street to the 10,000 taxpayers who choose to donate to WV CTF every year, each one of us has a role to play.

How to Help

Any person can designate on their tax form that a portion of their refund be donated to the Children’s Trust Fund or include a contribution with their tax payment. Donations can also be made online.

When children and families are equipped with the education and resources they need to thrive, so do we.

In this way—by fostering collaboration among community groups, state and local organizations, local teams, and more—we’re working not only to protect children and strengthen families, but also to assemble the building blocks of a better, brighter future for the Mountain State.
