Benedum Foundation

2016 Annual Report

Benedum Foundation addresses critical needs in West Virginia and Southwestern Pennsylvania. The Foundation’s thematic annual reports highlight initiatives with potential for sustainable benefit; the reports aim to educate audiences, advocate for progressive strategies, and enlist partners in the work. The 2016 report emphasizes West Virginia’s strong community bonds, as evidenced by three small rural towns. Spirited photography, uplifting storytelling, and bold design capture each town’s unique cultural richness and shine a light on the “champions” working to improve economic prospects there.
