Beckley Area Foundation ’19-’20 Grant

We’re thrilled to share with you that the NRGRDA, in partnership with Forward Southern West Virginia, is one of the recipients of the Beckley Area Foundation 2019-2020 Community Grants. The support they will provide, beginning April 2019, will support the growth of our Outdoor Industry Initiative. Establishing a thick, productive, and focused network of entities all working together to build an environment that attracts, fosters, and prioritizes manufacturing goods that serve adventure sports and the outdoor industry could lead to the New River Gorge Region being the next outdoor manufacturing capital of the state and the Appalachian region. We are honored to put the Beckley Area Foundation’s investment to work for the New River Gorge Region of West Virginia.
