Member Spotlight

Welcome new members Charles D Berry Foundation and HealthComp Foundation

Two new members have recently joined Philanthropy Ohio: Charles D. Berry Foundation and HealthComp Foundation.

Charles D. “Chuck” Berry created The Charles D. Berry Foundation in 2018 to make living in the Dayton community better today and tomorrow. The foundation was born from Chuck’s Christian beliefs, passion for his hometown and his many years of philanthropy and supports education, health care, the arts and recreational activities – all areas he believes play important roles in making a stronger community.

The HealthComp Foundation was established in 2016 in Cleveland utilizing funding from a prior business venture of The Center for Health Affairs’ for-profit affiliate, HealthComp, Inc. HealthComp Foundation’s mission is to accelerate a healthy community through high-quality health care services, community partnerships and investment. In November 2020, the board of directors approved grants totaling $230,000 to support four initiatives aimed at addressing systemic inequities revealed by the COVID-19 crisis.
