Membership in Philanthropy Ohio remained strong and diverse last year, as organizations from across the state renewed membership at 95% retention, up slightly from 2015.
Membership support is a significant source of Philanthropy Ohio’s income, representing 35 percent of total revenue. Many members provide financial support above and beyond dues, with grants to support special projects, policy initiatives, general operations and events totaling $1.1 million. Thanks to these members for their strong support last year:
Last year about 120 individuals engaged in the work of building a strong, vibrant network of philanthropy that impacts hundreds of communities across the state. Some of these individuals contributed their time and expertise through serving on the Philanthropy Ohio Board of Trustees or committees while others participated in policy initiatives and still others were content experts for the programs and webinars.
