Foundation For Appalachian Advancement
The Appalachian region is a place of strong values, a rich history, and a wealth of opportunity. We believe that solutions to move Appalachia forward regarding economic development and growth, tourism and education are most effective when they come from individuals and groups within Appalachia. We believe that the future of our region should be steered by the hard working citizens, visionaries and dreamers from Appalachia. We also believe that promoting our history, culture and the arts is an important part of the continued growth and development of Appalachia.
Working for economic, educational and cultural advancement throughout the Appalachian region.
For Appalachians to thrive in a region that is rich with mountains of opportunity.
