About Licking County Foundation…60 Years of Philanthropic Leadership
Farsighted civic leader Everett D. Reese had a vision of ensuring that the quality of life in Licking County would continually improve. To do this, he initiated the effort to establish a public community foundation for Licking County. Mr. Reese was a rare individual whose life and achievements were based on his belief in helping others. On November 21, 1956, the Licking County Foundation’s declaration of trust was drafted and filed by J. Gilbert Reese, Mr. Reese’s son. The original Governing Committee members included Everett D. Reese, Harold L. Ballinger, Francis P. Kennedy, Robert H. Flory, Games Slayter and Howard LeFevre. Since that time, the Licking County Foundation has grown to $82.2 million in assets through generations of gifts made by caring donors; and has changed the lives of countless people through $44.4 million in grants and scholarships to dedicated nonprofits and deserving students. Over the last 60 years, Licking County’s continuous generosity has ensured that Everett D. Reese’s philanthropic legacy of advancing our community will continue far into the future.
