By working in partnership with our donors, communities, and nonprofit organizations, the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio is growing resources for today’s citizens of Appalachian Ohio as well as for generations to come.

We work across the region and at the community level to help identify needs and grow the resources to address them. Over the past 15 years, we have worked with generous and caring donors to expand our I’m a Child of Appalachia Network and grow grantmaking funds.

The over 100 funds at the Foundation are focused on everything from growing philanthropy in specific communities and supporting the arts to helping increase educational opportunities and access to healthcare.


Through grants and scholarships, our funds make it possible for our citizens and communities to realize possibilities.
