Brenda Kutan had always planned to give back to the community. Establishing a Community Charitable Fund at the Licking County Foundation helped her do just that.

Like April flowers that push through late snow, volunteers persist to spread joy and aid in our community.

After 65 years of striving to help its community, organizers at Licking County Foundation are asking how they can improve life in Licking County.

Compassion in action...helping people change lives 

Shelter when it was needed most. A moving performance at the theater. A beloved furry friend, an extraordinary teacher, or a helping hand with an aging loved one. 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.

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 common...an unmistakable desire to improve their community, and the fortitude to turn their compassion into action.
