The Snowshoe Foundation

Dedicated to Enhancing the Quality of Life in Our Local Communities

Supporting Communities of Pocahontas, Webster, & Randolph County, WV

The Snowshoe Foundation supports local communities in Pocahontas, Webster, & Randolph County, WV.

The Snowshoe Foundation is dedicated to providing financial support to local community-based organizations whose activities provide benefits to the communities in Central West Virginia.

The Foundation began as an initiative to enhance the quality of life within our local communities. We are a 501 (c3) non-profit organization dedicated to serving the children and families of Webster, Pocahontas, Randolph, and surrounding counties. Our board of directors is comprised of committed individuals from these areas who actively seek to provide help and hope to area residents. The Snowshoe Foundation is a distinct entity from Snowshoe

Get Involved: Participate in Our Four Main Fundraisers

The Snowshoe Foundation organizes four major fundraising events each year to support our grant and scholarship programs, as well as numerous charitable organizations and worthwhile community endeavors that strengthen our communities. Along with several other initiatives during the year, we proudly host the Winter Benefit Dinner, Foundation Golf Tournament, Treasure on the Mountain Raffle, and our newest fundraiser, the Lighting of the Hearts Christmas Tree Fundraiser. When you combine these fundraising events with the regular donations given by our generous contributors and the efforts of our dedicated volunteers, the Snowshoe Foundation has become a distinguished and integral element enabling local residents to achieve an enhanced quality of life. We invite all who are able to get involved. Join us and experience the enduring satisfaction of making a difference.

Annual
Golf Tournament

When golf great Gary Player was finished designing the Raven Golf Course, he was left in awe by it’s scenery: “I have yet to see a course that compares with this one for mountain beauty,” said Player. It’s only appropriate that such an incredible golf tournament be held in such inspiring scenes. The Snowshoe Foundation Golf Tournament is a 4-person best ball tournament. Prizes for standard golf tournaments are provided along with a live auction that will leave you salivating over the items. Great Golf, Incredible Course, Quality Food and Drink, and Wonderful Prizes – You’ve got to experience the Snowshoe Foundation Golf Tournament!

Lighting
Our Hearts
Christmas Tree Fundraiser

The Snowshoe Foundation invites individuals, families, and businesses to purchase one of our beautiful, hand-selected trees to celebrate the season. Each tree includes an accompanying inscribed plaque with your holiday greeting or tribute. A limited number of trees with beautiful plaques will be available to purchase beginning on September 1, 2018. Trees will be displayed in the Snowshoe Village with their accompanying plaque and lights. They will remain lit during the holiday season for approximately 5-6 weeks.

Annual Event

Dave Dekema
Holiday Toy Drive

Many local families can use a helping hand, especially during the holiday season. A toy can bring joy and hope to the life of a child. The Snowshoe Foundation invites individuals and businesses to donate to our annual Holiday Toy Drive, which honors the life of a great leader, our dear friend and community member, David Dekema. Direct donations for our 2018 Holiday Toy Drive will be accepted throughout the year. We welcome your participation. We humbly thank you for your decision to donate holiday joy to local children during this year's season of lights.

Being a Good Neighbor: Addressing Challenges to Help Local Families

The Snowshoe Foundation strives to be the good neighbor to families in the local communities that surround us. It is a privilege to live in this area of the state, yet some unique challenges exist that highly populated areas do not deal with. There are multiple needs that our smaller communities face, and the Foundation prides itself on helping these communities and the families within overcome these challenges. Stronger communities are better for everyone. Whether rebuilding a fence around a local baseball field, helping provide funding for local food banks, supporting healthier lifestyle events, or supplementing higher education scholarships, the Snowshoe Foundation is dedicated to being a good neighbor during good times, as well as difficult moments.
