We’re building a better West Virginia

And many hands not only make light work, but also ensure people in your community are connected to our programs. With offices in all 55 counties, your gift, large or small, recurring or one-time, truly does impact a neighbor, local farmer or youth in your community.

WVU Extension programs are comprehensive, providing many ways to make an impression on a statewide and local level. We feel they’re all important, but these areas are particularly impactful:

When you support the Dean and Director’s Annual Fund (2U104) your gift will be used to meet our most pressing needs. This fund is utilized to develop new programs, expand existing programs or invest in an unforeseen opportunity to positively impact the people of our state.

Much like the Dean and Director’s Annual Fund, The 4-H Annual Fund (2V530) allows your gift to be used where it is most needed today. Other popular 4-H funds include the 4-H State Camps Fund (2V529) and the 4-H State Camps Scholarship Fund (2V533).

The WVU Jackson’s Mill Restoration and Improvement Fund (2V620) supports the restoration and historic preservation of Jackson’s Mill and is a favorite among those who had formative experiences at the Mill.

The Communities, Economic & Workforce Development Annual Fund (2U098) and Families & Health Annual Fund (2W092) invest in building healthy communities, workforces and families. And the Agricultural & Natural Resources Annual Fund (2U099) supports programs for aspiring growers and veteran farmers and educates residents about balancing opportunities that come with natural resources while being good stewards of the state they love. 

To make a contribution now, visit the WVU Foundation.
