The Parkersburg Area Community Foundation (PACF) announced that more than $518,000 was raised through its exciting 24-hour online giving campaign held on Tuesday, May 7.

Nonprofits participating in Give Local MOV 2024 included 67 area groups with missions supporting animals; arts and culture; community improvement; education; environment; health; human services; and youth development. Organizations invited to participate were those with a charitable fund associated with PACF’s family of funds.

“We had an extraordinary 24-hours here in the Mid-Ohio Valley,” said Julie Posey, PACF’s Development and Stewardship Officer. “On behalf of the 67 participating organizations, the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation wants to thank everyone who supported this year's Give Local MOV campaign. The immense generosity displayed by so many has truly touched and inspired us.”

A key benefit of giving to the participating nonprofits on May 7 was the availability of 1:1 matching funds and incentive prizes. Several regional sponsors, led by Superior Toyota, supplied matching funds that made the day even more exciting.

“Our support is made possible by our Superior team and our customers,” said T.R. Hathaway, owner of Superior Toyota. “If the community didn’t support us, we wouldn’t be able to provide this type of funding for our community. We’re thankful for our community and want to give back. Give Local MOV is an excellent way to do just that in our region.”

The PACF invites the public to check out the final Give Local MOV leaderboards at to see individual organization results. To learn more, call the PACF at 304-428-4438.

"A heartfelt thank you goes out to all our incredible supporters this year,” said Posey. “And a huge congratulations to all the deserving organizations that received support. Living and working in the Mid-Ohio Valley is truly a joyous experience. Here, we cherish one another and foster a community of care and support."
