To create opportunities for

Appalachian Ohio's citizens

and communities by inspiring

and supporting philanthropy.

The Foundation for Appalachian Ohio is a regional community foundation serving Appalachian Ohio’s 32 counties with the mission to create opportunities for Appalachian Ohio’s citizens and communities by inspiring and supporting philanthropy.

Since 1998, the Foundation has been working with donors who are passionate about Appalachian Ohio, its communities, and its future.  FAO is here to help donors give back in ways that are meaningful – to them and to our region.

At FAO, we know that changing the philanthropy gap in our region will unleash the potential of our region's changemakers.  When we, as donors, choose to invest in the areas closest to our hearts, our philanthropic actions will combine to have the effect of improving every aspect of the region's quality of life.

MPAC partnered with FAO to create the Meigs Performing Arts

Center Fund.  The MPAC Fund will be used to support a wide range of

arts and cultural activities in Meigs County.  The current emphasis of the

Fund is the development of a state-of-the-art theater, community center, and

educational facility to serve Meigs County citizens.  In partnering with FAO, MPAC will benefit from dedicated staff to provide expertise and back-office support to steward the donations that come from the community into support for MPAC.
