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 (c)(3) 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 Mountain Resort.

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 2021 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.

Golf Tournament

When golf great Gary Player finished designing the Raven Golf Course, he was left in awe by its scenery: “I have yet to see a course that compares with this one for mountain beauty.” It’s only appropriate that such an incredible golf tournament be held in such inspiring scenes. The Snowshoe Foundation Golf Tournament is a four-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!

On The Mountain

It’s mind-blowing! Buying a raffle ticket for the Treasure on the Mountain Raffle sponsored by the Snowshoe Foundation enters you in the best raffle contest in West Virginia. Located on the top of Snowshoe Mountain with incredible food and drink vendors, awesome entertainment, and hundreds of festive patrons, all of your senses will experience euphoria (even if you don’t have a winning ticket)!

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.”
