PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE
Letter From The President
As president of the board, it is an honor to have a humble role in the great impact that the foundation has on organizations, schools and people throughout Miami County. The work we provide and the partnerships we share in our neighboring cities enables hundreds of organizations in the area to offer support and services to others.
In Spring of 2022, I was fortunate to be a part of our successful and impressively attended grant celebration at Miami County Park District’s new Heritage Hall at Lost Creek Reserve. More than 140 guests joined for the venue’s first event, and we distributed $290,000 to 84 grant recipients. I am proud that dozens of area students received 50 scholarship awards through the foundation this May as well.
Our board of directors, comprised of colleagues and now friends, fondly said farewell to founding member Joanna Hill Heitzman who was posthumously named Director Emerita upon her passing in August 2021. Long-time member, Bradley Vath, concluded his board term with our sincere appreciation. We are excited to welcome new board members representing our local communities to strengthen our outreach and continue the good work of the foundation throughout the county. Most recently, we’ve welcomed the leadership, skill sets and charitable nature of new board members Erin Johnston, Shane Carter and Christy Butera.
The selfless work that I have been fortunate to witness as a board member and president of the foundation is remarkable. I look forward to our ongoing relationship with the people of Miami County, continuing to embody our motto of “People Helping People.”
