Ashland Foundation celebrates 25 years
In celebration of their 25th anniversary, Ashland County Community Foundation offered challenge grants to local nonprofits to create agency endowment funds at the foundation. An agency endowment fund is a permanent fund that generates investment income, which is distributed to the nonprofit organization in set annual payments or reinvested in the fund to grow over time. The foundation currently holds 48 funds for 33 local organizations.
Ashland County Community Foundation advances philanthropy and improves the quality of life in Ashland County by supporting charitable activities, providing and administering planned giving programs and serving as responsible stewards of scholarship, as well as individual and organizational funds for specific charities. The foundation has over $55 million in assets and has awarded over $15.3 million in scholarships, grants and distributions. To meet all our members, please visit philanthropyohio.org/directory.
