The Townwide Fund of Huntington was founded in 1961 by a group of private citizens who wanted to help local charities raise funds. The organization's essential mission was to keep money raised in Huntington within the community.
Now more than 50 years and $10 million later, we continue to infuse local organizations with the support they need to provide vital health and human services to the people of Huntington.
As a non-governmental agency, The Townwide Fund of Huntington bridges the gap between dwindling governmental support for local charities and the increasing needs of community residents.
Over the years, our fundraising efforts have depended upon the generosity of our donors. In addition to our FOCUS direct mail campaigns, our Thanksgiving Day Run and St. Patrick’s Run have become Huntington traditions.
The Fund also sponsors an annual Golf Outing, which adds significant funds to our yearly campaigns. The Townwide Fund is Your Community Chest! Your contributions allow us to provide funding to our member agencies.
