OGF becomes Philanthropy Ohio

December 3, 2012 at 11:30 am Leave a comment


OGF members took the final step in implementing our new strategic plan when they voted unanimously to change the organization’s name from Ohio Grantmakers Forum to Philanthropy Ohio, as of January 1, 2013. Members adopted the new name during their annual meeting, held in conjunction with the annual conference in Cleveland, on November 15.

The new name reflects the board’s decision to become the leading voice and resource for all types of Ohio philanthropy, opening membership beyond our historic foundations and corporate giving program membership categories. Membership is now open to individuals, federated funds, giving circles and government agencies, expanding the opportunities to network and collaborate to improve communities across the state.

The few hundred people attending the conference’s closing lunch saw the new logo during a celebration of Ohio philanthropy that included a wonderful video produced by The Columbus Foundation. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch it: it shows the many faces of Ohio philanthropy, its diversity and strength, its passion and commitment.
