There can be little doubt about a certain amount of philanthropy is simply good business, and that works for the long-term benefit of the community.

I was fortunate to get an education in the very earliest years of Wright State University. Some local leadership was interested enough to help create a new educational institution. Other folks happened to be kind enough to continue to contribute to scholarship within the Greene County Community Foundation, d/b/a Greene Giving. That’s what I think philanthropy is about in Greene County.

Greene Giving serves people in Greene County who care about their communities. Results happen in their communities as Greene Giving serves them.

Working through local charitable entities, the Greene County Community Foundation has been making our region into a better place as a result of Greene Giving. There are a variety of account types to meet personal giving needs.

Unrestricted Account:  The accounts have the flexibility to respond to changing needs in the region. Gifts to an unrestricted Greene Giving Account provide increased grant-making opportunities for Greene Giving.

Field-of-Interest Account:  The Philanthropy Committee recommends to Greene Giving’s Board of Directors, grants in areas of greatest needs aligning with donors’ charitable interests. These can include family and health, public education, recreation and senior centers.

Committee/Donor-Advised Account:  Donors make distribution suggestions for specific, qualified charitable organizations in the region and across the nation.

Agency Endowment:  Greene Giving helps to manage assets for charitable organizations including the Beavercreek Community Theatre, Bellbrook United Methodist Church, Fairborn Parks Foundation, Family Violence Prevention Center of Greene County and the  Greene County Council on Aging (Partners in Care).

Memorial /Tribute Account:  Contributions give donors — as well as their families, friends or organizations — a way to preserve the memories of individuals and their legacy. Contributions may also be made to celebrate or honor special occasions, i.e., birthdays, retirements, etc.

Financial Highlights

During 2016, millions of dollars were added to various account types at Greene Giving. Distributions again reached well over a million during the year. The Greene County Community Foundation assets now total over $12 million.
