Hocking County Community Fund
As part of its campaign to raise funds to support Hocking County, the Hocking County Community Fund launched 100 Women for Hocking County. The 100 Women for Hocking County campaign seeks to raise $50,000 through gifts from 100 women of $500 or more. To join the 100 Women for Hocking County campaign with a gift today, click here.
Designed for the benefit of Hocking County, its people, and communities, the Hocking County Community Fund is a new way for anyone with a heart for Hocking County to give back and make a difference.
The Logan-Hocking School District spearheaded the creation of the Hocking County Community Fund with a vision for increasing the ability of everyone to invest in Hocking County through grants and scholarships. An endowment, the Hocking County Community Fund will gather resources through gifts and invest those dollars for the benefit of Hocking County residents over generations.
The Family of Funds will grow to serve the arts, community development, education, environmental stewardship, and health and human services, including efforts like the restoration of the historic Chakeres Theater, continued development of Hocking Adena Bikeway, and development of the Chieftain Center, an 81,000 sq. ft. multi-purpose facility that will be available for use by both students and the community.
The Hocking County Community Foundation and its Family of Funds are currently forming fund committees to oversee and fundraise to support each of the funds. Gifts to the Hocking County Community Fund and its Family of Funds are tax deductible and can be made in many ways, including cash, bequests, appreciated stock, IRA distributions, and life insurance. Donations can be made online at www.AppalachianOhio.org by designating the Hocking County Community Fund when donating. To mail your donation, please designate the fund and mail to the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio, PO Box 456, Nelsonville, OH 45764.
