They come from every walk of life...every generation...and their interests are as varied as the people they wish to serve. Yet each of our donors has something in unmistakable desire to improve their community, and the fortitude to turn their compassion into action.

Welcome to Licking County Foundation

Thank you for visiting our website!

Compassion in Action...Helping People Change Lives

A hospital that saved a loved one's life. A moving performance at the Midland. A beloved church, an extraordinary teacher, or a helping hand when you needed it most. Throughout life, we are touched by people, organizations and events that ignite our passion for causes greater than ourselves.

The Licking County Foundation helps people turn that passion into action. We are a collection of donors and important causes with one common mission: to improve the quality of life for all citizens of Licking County.


Many dedicated nonprofit organizations, important causes and inspired teachers are supported through grant awards from our charitable funds each year.


Since 1968, Licking County Foundation has awarded thousands of scholarships to area college-bound students to pursue their academic dreams.


The Foundation is a family of over 200 charitable funds established by caring donors with a common concern for the well-being of Licking County citizens.
