  • Hire Federal Work-Study Students to work in your community site:

    Federal Work-Study is a federally funded program that allows eligible students to earn funds working part-time with approved employers on and off campus. The program is mutually beneficial — the student earns money to pay for college while their employer gains a helpful hand and currently incurs no cost when it comes to their paycheck. Eligible community sites include non-profit 501(c)3 organizations, and federal, state, or local government agencies serving in the public interest. Read a fact sheet about the program and reach out to for more information.

  • Find a funding opportunity!  Through our Partnership with WVU Libraries, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foundation Center Online has made FDO Essentials grants database available to our partners through an encrypted link. Penny Pugh, our talented WVU librarian invites you to contact her for any questions and is available to meet with you virtually to go over the system. Just email her at to get the link or to set up a meeting. Campus partners and WVU students have access, via the campus library system, to the professional version of the Foundation Directory Online with their WVU login credentials.
