Who We Are


We, at the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio, are your neighbors and partners, actively working to build philanthropic resources within Appalachian Ohio.

The Foundation’s value goes well beyond financial management; we are the region’s catalyst and tool for uniting gifts of time, talent, and treasure to create transformational impact.

We believe that as we close the region’s philanthropy gap, we will all see change in our region’s battle with generational poverty. Our citizens and communities will be empowered to create opportunities today and across future generations.
