The Sandusky County Communities Foundation was established in 1998 by the citizens of our community.  Its mission is to improve the quality of life for those who live and work in Sandusky County.  The foundation works to build a permanent endowment used to support a variety of charitable programs to address the current and emerging needs of local residents.


Donors can designate gifts through The Foundation that benefit the community in areas such as Arts and Humanities, Community Development, Education, Environment, Health and Social Services, and Youth Services.  They provide an efficient, effective structure for linking charitable interest with important programs and services and offer several options through which gifts can be made to benefit Sandusky county communities.
