It’s simple. Our donors create opportunities because they make our work possible.

Anyone can become a part of our work to turn generations of poverty into a future of prosperity. We invite you to learn more about some of our donors who have shared their stories with us – why they give, how they work with the Foundation, and what they are making possible through philanthropy.

What you will see is that each of our donors is different, but they give through the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio because we are able to help them build a charitable legacy. Together, we can make a difference.

Learn more about how you or your business can join our I’m a Child of Appalachia Network or explore ways to give through a fund at the Foundation.
