Welcome to the Hinton Area Foundation

The Hinton Area Foundation is a non-profit, community foundation organized to encourage philanthropic giving and to provide a common source for contributions to benefit the local community. In short, the foundation's purpose is to build a better community.

To accomplish this purpose, your community foundation accepts gifts which are deposited in perpetual endowment funds. The income from the endowed funds is dispensed each year to benefit the Hinton and Summers County community and are in support of educational, health, human services, artistic, public recreation, beautification, and other charitable projects. Only the income from these funds is used to provide grants. The corpus of the funds will stay intact to benefit the community forever.

The Hinton Area Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, but it really belongs to the entire community. It is your community foundation.

The Foundation's goals are to leave our community better than we found it and to create a legacy for the future.

If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.
