Ribbon-Cutting-Presentation---web

Since 2001 the Pickaway County Community Foundation has been connecting community members, families, businesses, nonprofits and other partners to strengthen Pickaway County through philanthropy. The Pickaway County Community Foundation and its donors have created a wide range of community funds to help do this. These funds are our opportunity to bring individuals together to support the Foundation and other common causes in our county.

These funds were created by the vision and commitment of the community and supporting them promises a brighter future for our county.
