Opiate Crisis Funding Snapshot
Ohio’s State of Affairs 2019

The purpose of this white paper is first, to capture what we know about the public and private investments to address the opioid and other drug addiction crisis in Ohio and, second, to profile philanthropic activities of Philanthropy Ohio members engaged in addressing the crisis in their communities. The white paper is made possible thanks to the generous support from the Cardinal Health Foundation and the Nord Family Foundation, which also provided a researcher to help in gathering and compiling data.

We embarked on the research as part of an affinity group of funders that began meeting in 2017 to share information about grants and projects, learn about the state’s efforts to address the crisis and explore roles for philanthropy and possible ways to work together. The group of approximately 30 members represents the diversity of our membership – including corporate, community and private foundations as well as United Ways – and of the state, from small towns to rural areas and the largest cities.
