Faith in Action of the Greater Kanawha Valley
THE MISSION of Faith in Action of the Greater Kanawha Valley is to support the independent living of older adults in the communities we serve by lending a helping hand,
neighbor to neighbor.

for our most vulnerable - right now.

While much of the world is on hold, Faith in Action of the Greater Kanawha Valley is hard at work making sure the older neighbors in our community have access to the food and supplies they need to survive, and the social connection they need to thrive

Normally this time of year, we would be gearing up for our signature event – Sweet Charity. This year, things are different. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to postpone this important fundraiser to a future date.

But the mission critical work of Faith in Action of the Greater Kanawha Valley goes on, and we need your help.

Our active volunteer pool is smaller than normal given the COVID-19 crisis, but we are still picking up and delivering groceries, transporting seniors to MEDICALLY ESSENTIAL doctor appointments, and making regular check-in phone calls to stay connected.

We have also waived our standard intake protocols for new care receivers and are making these limited but urgently needed services available to the broader community of 60+ residents as we strive to weather this storm together.

Your financial contribution today will ensure our community’s older neighbors have consistent access to our program of services: free transportation to medical appointments, trips to the grocery store, friendly phone calls, and minor home repairs when normalcy returns.

More importantly, right now , your donation means our organization can remain nimble enough to address emerging needs of our seniors as a result of this current crisis. Our organization is uniquely positioned to respond to special needs that arise in this fluid situation with flexibility not found in other agencies. We can mobilize quickly and react in meaningful ways…but only with your support.

The money you give empowers the work we do right here in our community, lending a helping hand to older adults in need, neighbor to neighbor.

Will you make a donation today?

Good News for Donors
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act ,  is a $2.2 trillion emergency relief package in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It includes special provisions for donors to charitable organizations as outlined below:*

  • Section 2204 of the CARES Act includes a new above-the-line deduction (universal or non-itemized deduction that applies to all taxpayers) for total charitable contributions of up to $300. The incentive applies to contributions made in 2020 and would be claimed on tax forms next year.

  • Section 2205 of the CARES Act lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, raising it from 60 percent of adjusted gross income to 100 percent. For corporations, the legislation raises the annual limit from 10 percent to 25 percent.
