Ohio CAT Challenge


Building the Pillars of Prosperity for Appalachian Ohio
The Foundation for Appalachian Ohio is working to grow endowment in five areas of investment vital to the long-term prosperity of our region’s citizens and communities. Known as the Pillars of Prosperity Fundsthese endowments will advance innovations, remove barriers, and create opportunities across our region—not only today, but for generations.

Each pillar represents an essential piece of a rich quality of life in Appalachian Ohio. Gifts to these pillars will be used on the region’s most pressing needs in these five areas so you can be sure that in giving to your passion, you’re growing opportunities for the region.

To accelerate the growth of these funds and the difference they can make, Ohio CAT has issued a matching challenge grant. For every dollar FAO raises for the Pillars of Prosperity Funds, Ohio CAT will provide a matching dollar—up to $500,000.
