Regional Opportunity Scorecard

The Foundation for Appalachian Ohio created the Regional Opportunity Scorecard to support the efforts of individuals and organizations working to transform quality of life in Appalachian Ohio. By measuring our region’s progress across eight indicators of prosperity, the Scorecard will help us begin to understand the difference we are making collectively and the opportunities for continued improvement and investment:

  • LOCAL PHILANTHROPY 
  • PHILANTHROPIC RESOURCES 
  • EDUCATIONAL ADVANCEMENT 
  • POST-GRAD RETAINMENT 
  • ECONOMIC INNOVATION 
  • A THRIVING ECONOMY 
  • CITIZENS’ PROSPERITY 
  • REGIONAL PROSPERITY

Over the coming years, the Foundation will work with many partners to leverage the Regional Opportunity Scorecard as a tool to stimulate focused attention on the region’s needs, opportunities, and successes and to guide our investments of time, talent, and treasure, so we can make the largest, most lasting difference possible.

To access the 2016 data used by the Center for Rural Entrepreneurship within the scorecard, please visit the files online. You can access 2013 data used by the Center for Rural Entrepreneurship here, the 2014 data here, and the 2015 data herePlease note the source as you consider the raw data to ensure an accurate interpretation. Our data is organized by goal and regionally focused, therefore it may be less helpful at the county-level. (For example: The philanthropic assets measured in Goal 2 are assigned a county based on where an organization is located. In this instance, all of FAO’s assets would be considered Athens County based on our address rather than on our service area).
