More and more we have been hearing about how big the hearts of our favorite country artists are. So many are making donations to various charitable organizations. Others are organizing events with the proceeds going to charity. And some, like Brad Paisley have a foundation.
The Brad Paisley Foundation is a private, charitable foundation founded by Brad in 2001. The purpose of the foundation is to distribute funds to various charities, and has financially donated to many organizations to assist in the accomplishment of those agencies objectives.
The Children’s Miracle Network,Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, The Soup Kitchen of Wheeling, and several other local charities have benefited from the work Brad’s foundation does.
A Board of Trustees oversees the distribution of the funds to worthy charities. All of the members of the board serve voluntarily, and receive no pay for the time they give.
Anyone who would like to make a donation to this worthwhile foundation may do so, by mailing a check to The Brad Paisley Foundation, c/o WestBanco Trust & Investment Services, One Bank Plaza, Wheeling, WV 26003.
