Since 2013 the Community Foundation of the Northern Shenandoah Valley has served as the fiscal agent for the Chain of Checks, an idea that started in 1986 when morning radio announcer Barry Lee of WINC 92.5 FM asked listeners to send in Christmas cards to decorate the studio and include one dollar for CCAP. Since then, Chain of Checks has raised more than $1.2 million for community nonprofits. The Chain of Checks Endowment fund will serve as a legacy to Barry Lee and all that he has given back to our community for so many years through the Chain of Checks.
