Founded in 1994, the CFNRV aims to lift up its community and address current needs by working with a variety of donors to raise funding for nonprofit organizations and students throughout the region.

Each day, the organization works to introduce donors to charitable organizations whose interests, ideas and passions align with their own.

Since it was created, the nonprofit has established more than 200 endowed funds as it strives to serve the counties of Floyd, Giles, Montgomery, Pulaski, and Wythe and the City of Radford.

When it comes to giving back to its community, the CFNRV focuses on a variety of areas, including animal welfare, arts and culture, civic affairs, education, environment, health, poverty, support, parenting, and care.
