Welcome to the Miami County Foundation. Through trusted community partnerships, we are committed to advancing our communities through charitable giving, scholarships, and supporting non-profit agencies and schools throughout all of Miami County.

Our Mission

To effectively assist, encourage and promote the health, education and welfare of the citizens of Miami County by soliciting, receiving and administrating assets exclusively for their charitable needs.

Letter From The President

The Miami County Foundation is dedicated every day to funding and supporting the not-for-profit community in the county. Our people-first focus is on understanding the needs of the community, raising needed funds and resources, and overseeing the use of these funds as our commitment to advancing our communities. Funds raised here are invested here to meet the current and future charitable needs of our Miami County communities, not-for-profits, schools, and students.


Founded in 1985 as one man’s dream, the Miami County Foundation continues to grow as the community foundation of Miami County offering charitable funds, grants, and scholarships. To date, the Foundation has distributed $7.2 million dollars to over 450 not-for-profit organizations and school projects. It would be difficult to find someone in Miami County who has not been touched by the positive work of the Miami County Foundation and its partner agencies and scholarship funds.

As President, I am extremely proud to be part of the Miami County Foundation. Our board and staff wish to extend an invitation for you to join us in empowering our neighbors through donations, partnerships, volunteering, and creating new funds to become part of Miami County’s “People Helping People".


-Dave Larson

 Emergency Grant Application Program
Spring 2020

Due to the current events happening in our county, the Miami County Foundation has reevaluated our Spring Grant cycle to address the current need for humanitarian relief.  The Miami County Foundation will support our Miami County nonprofits in their efforts to provide additional enhanced services to counter the effects the coronavirus (COVID-19) is having on our Miami County friends and neighbors. Thus the “normal” spring grant cycle will not occur this year.

The funds previously budgeted for the spring grant cycle will now be used to support the Miami County Foundation’s Emergency COVID-19 Grant Program. The Miami County Foundation will immediately begin providing emergency COVID-19 funding (applications reviewed in the order they are received) to organizations supplying food, shelter, and other humanitarian needs.

Completed applications may be emailed to


 or mailed to P. O. Box 1526, Piqua, OH 45356.

Emergency grants may not be used for operating and/or payroll expenses.  Please refer to the SBA website for assistance https://www.uschamberfoundation.org/reports/coronavirus-response-resources#events
