Together, we’ve already made so much possible.

Each funded project was made possible by the generosity of people like you. Half of each gift went to support a project of the donor’s choosing to begin making an impact right away. The other half of each gift was invested in the I’m a Child of Appalachia Fund to pursue the greatest needs and most promising opportunities in our communities for generations to come.

You Donate, We Match\
