The Discover the Real West Virginia Foundation was born in 1988 through the initiative of Senator John D. Rockefeller IV.

He also saw visionary business leaders struggling to expand beyond the State's borders. Since that time, we have steadfastly pursued our goal of building a strong and diversified West Virginia.
