Welcome to the Foundation for the Tri-State Community, Inc., Web site.
We are the only community foundation located in the Tri-State area of eastern Kentucky, southwestern West Virginia and southern Ohio. As a community foundation, we enable our donors to achieve their charitable goals, support and strengthen non-profit organizations through our grants and technical assistance, and improve the lives of our citizens. The Foundation is an independent, non-profit, tax exempt, philanthropic corporation, which was established in 1972.
Grants are awarded to local non-profits and scholarships to local students. I invite you to find out more about our grants by clicking here. Our continuing operations are made possible by the generous donations of individuals, businesses and corporations.

The Foundation represents all facets of its tri-state community. Grants are made to diverse groups, ranging from arts and cultural organizations, social service agencies, environmental causes, scholarships, youth programs and much more. Our board of trustees comes from Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia and supports the Foundationís mission. In fact, the Foundationís board is a hands-on, active one that shares its multiple talents and expertise for the good of all people of the tri-state.
