Home > About Us > History

In 1961, a group of Huntington residents came together with the goal of helping their in need neighbors.  Their mission was to raise funds within the community to assist local charities.  We are proud to report that since its inception, the TWF has raised more than $10 million and continues to infuse local health and human service organizations with the support they need to help the residents of Huntington.

Currently, more than 20 local charitable agencies are partnered with the TWF to improve the quality of life in our community. As a non-governmental agency, we bridge the gap between dwindling governmental support for local charities and the increasing needs of community residents.

The TWF is made up of passionate like-minded volunteers. Their enthusiasm and commitment, along with help from our wonderful sponsors, has ensured that the TWF  remains an integral part of a strong and vibrant Huntington.

Mission Statement

The Townwide Fund of Huntington, Inc. raises funds in the greater Huntington community for distribution to carefully chosen agencies that provide vital health and human services to those in need in our community. Through the efforts of our volunteers, and the agencies we support, we seek to elevate the quantity and quality of services available.
“Money raised in Huntington, stays in Huntington.”
