AMFM believes has received national awards from numerous associations.  They have won 28 National Quality Awards and the Bronze and Silver levels. The AMFM Charitable Foundation, INC. began in 2009 to provide each AMFM center the ability to enrich their communities directly with financial donations to local charities and groups.  The foundation raises money throughout West Virginia. They assist food pantries, local volunteer fire departments, libraries, women’s shelters, churches, hospitals and other organizations.
