Welcome to The Piqua Community Foundation

Perspective From the Director

wendelnRecently I received an unsolicited donation to The Foundation’s Community Fund in the mail. That’s not an unusual occurrence – what was remarkable was the letter. The donor expressed perfectly the way many of us feel about our hometown.

“I used to live in Piqua, I was raised in Piqua, I went to school in Piqua. I moved out of Piqua after my parents passed away, but Piqua will always be my true home. Enclosed is my donation to the Piqua Community Foundation, to give back a little to my all-time home town.”

While the donation was not large, I gladly added it to the Piqua Community Fund, which we use to make grants to organizations like those featured on our grants page. I have kept the letter on my bulletin board to encourage me and to remind me that our Foundation helps many people to have a better life here in Piqua, their true home.

One way we can do so is through the Little Kinger Scholarship, available to a Miami Valley graduating senior female athlete who will continue in athletics at a university or college next year. Information and an application form are available on our news page, and the deadline for submission is April 30.

If you would like more information about The Foundation, our grant-making, or ways to donate, please contact me at the office.
