Welcome to the Alleghany Highlands of Virginia

About The Alleghany Foundation

The Alleghany Foundation was established in 1995 with $35 million in proceeds from the sale of Alleghany Regional Hospital. Since then, the Foundation has awarded $42.9 million in grants in the areas of healthcare, education, recreation, economic development, arts & humanities, historic preservation and social and community services. Assets of the Foundation currently are $57 million. (December, 2012)



The Alleghany Foundation is excited to announce a new on-line grant application process that is available for the September 2014 grant cycle.  This on-line application is optional for this fall grant cycle but will be a requirement for future applications.  Starting August 11, 2014, applicants can access the on-line application through our website, www.alleghanyfoundation.org.  Also available on our website are the revised grant application questions, grant application guidelines, and an on-line Application Tutorial Training. Though the on-line materials provide an overview that applicants can use at any time, training is offered at C. P. Jones Library on Thursday, August 14 at 1:30 p.m. Applicants must be a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization or eligible local government entity.  The deadline for submission of grant applications is Tuesday, September 2, 5:00 p.m. if you apply by paper and Tuesday, September 9, 11:59 p.m. if you apply electronically.  The Foundation believes the on-line process will be easier for applicants, and it creates a history that applicants can access for future grant cycles.  We encourage applicants to try this new process.

 Please RSVP if you are interested in attending the training!
