Our member charities are the safety net for the community. Many of them provide food, housing, healthcare, education, community or support that individuals, children, and families cannot receive from anyone else. In order to provide these programs and services, it takes a lot of dedicated people working behind the scenes to make sure the lights are on, doors are open, and the services stay available.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, we’re recognizing the women who provide leadership, passion, and dedication to the success of our member charities that are benefiting our community. Their work has not only benefited their nonprofit organization, but by extension created change and impact in the Central Ohio community.
