Appalachia Funders Network

The Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation has a long history of investing in Appalachian people and places. To foster collaborative funding in the region and increase collective impact, MRBF helped co-found the Appalachia Funders Network (AFN). The Network consists of public and private grantmakers who envision a sustainable regional economy that builds on existing assets to create multiple forms of wealth and promote opportunity and equity for all Appalachian individuals, families, and communities. This short animated video introduces the work of the Appalachia Funders Network and presents promising sectors for investors.
