Join the Charleston Area Alliance for our 2018 Celebration - the "Business Event of the Year" - at the newly-renovated Charleston Civic Center on Monday, October 29. This is an opportunity to celebrate economic and community development with hundreds of business colleagues from across the Kanawha Valley. And this year, it is a chance to pay tribute to philanthropic efforts that have made a profound difference in our region and state.
From January 1999 through June of this year, William “Pat” Getty led the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation in a manner that truly fulfilled the vision of its founder, Michael L. Benedum, that, “It is our duty to sow and to nurture, leaving it to others to harvest the fruits of our efforts.”
There are few, if any, West Virginians who have not been impacted by the work of the Foundation. During Mr. Getty’s tenure as President alone, the Foundation awarded nearly 1,900 grants across our state - totaling more than $200 million.
Don’t miss our 2018 Celebration as we hear reflections from Mr. Getty and pay tribute to his leadership - and to the lasting, remarkable impact of the Benedum Foundation’s philanthropy in our community and beyond.
