We will identify, establish and cultivate meaningful relationships with Fairmont State alumni, as well as potential and existing funding constituencies to meet contributor needs while securing funds and supporters for priority objectives identified by the Board of Governors.
The Foundation is governed by an elected Board of Directors, whose members serve as advocates for Fairmont State, its colleges, programs and units. Foundation Board members are professionals from many walks of life, and they are committed to building successful partnerships with Fairmont State University and its many generous supporters.

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
We do not display sexual orientation information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff.
