One Creative Place
Charleston, WV 25311
Around here, we’ve been known to say it’s all about the people. Ours are pretty great, if we do say so ourselves. From comediennes to travel enthusiasts, foodies to novelists, we’ve got a little bit of everything radiating within the walls of Kingery & Company. In addition to all the unique things we bring to the table as individuals, the one thing we all have in common is a deeply-rooted passion for helping our clients and that thing we do – build capacity for nonprofits.
