Ohio has a strong tradition of charitable giving, starting with the creation of the first community foundation in the world as well as thousands of private foundations, federated funds, corporations and millions of individuals. Each year, Philanthropy Ohio researches, analyzes and presents the most recent data on Ohio’s individual and organizational giving in the Ohio Gives report. This year’s snapshot of how Ohio gives relies on 2013 and 2014 data from a variety of sources to demonstrate the strength of philanthropic giving in the state.
