What is A
Community Fund?

The Community Fund is a permanent charitable resource designed to support local causes and organizations. Through individual donations – large and small – a local advisory board is able to make grants to meet the needs and vision of the community. We partner with individuals, businesses and nonprofits to make Magoffin County a better place to live, learn, work and play.

Spotlight: Doing Good
In Magoffin County


For the past 16 years, Magoffin County Community Day has been instrumental in helping our local nonprofits and civic groups raise the funds for all the good things they do for our community. It is also a great day of fellowship, lively music and good food for our people. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s Community Day in the park was not feasible. But, the need for the work of our civic groups is still there. We also believe our county has a strong spirit and want to see those efforts continue.

Instead of a one-day event, the 2020 Magoffin County Community Day fund raising activities will continue with an online fundraiser from August 10 - August 31. Gifts can be made online at to support our local nonprofits who need your help now, more than ever! All money raised will be split equally between the 18 participating nonprofit organizations.

The Magoffin County Community Foundation strongly supports the online fundraiser and has issued a challenge to the community: for every $1 raised, the Foundation will match it with $2, up to $35,000! That means your gift of $20 becomes $60, or your $100 gift becomes $300 to support important programs and crucial services provided by our local nonprofits! Help us meet this challenge match and give today!  

Community Day is sponsored by the Magoffin County Community Foundation and the Salyersville National Bank. The Foundation appreciates the support it has received over the years and will continue to be responsible stewards of the funds you have entrusted to it. We’re doing our part by staying apart, but we are working together to create a better future for Magoffin County!
