The Walmart Foundation is giving $100,000 to the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio.
The money is "to grow community philanthropy across the Appalachian Ohio region."
A news release says this effort will focus "on actively partnering with local communities in Gallia, Guernsey, Harrison, Jackson, Meigs, Morgan and Perry counties to support their efforts of building a locally-directed source of community philanthropy."
Cara Dingus Brook is president and CEO of the FAO.
She says her group has a vision "of one day seeing every Appalachian Ohio county served by a community foundation."
